BARACKALYPSE: Munch on the Metro

You know the Metro on inauguration day is still going to be a complete shit show, blow-up Edvard Munch Scream dolls or not.

Do WMATA employees make these videos while on drugs? (Yes, they make special instruction videos for every big event in D.C.) My favorite is the part where The Scream gets squished in the Metro doors, falls to the ground in slow-mo, and they pan down to it and hold the frame for, like, ten seconds too long. I just have to point out, though, that their comment about the doors not popping open like elevator doors seems like a ruse to strike fear into tourists and encourage them not to overcrowed the trains. I know those suckers pop open if they hit someone because, WITHOUT FAIL, at at least one stop every morning during my commute (red line from Friendship Heights to Chinatown/Gallery Place) the doors will open and shut like five goddamn times while saying *ding, ding, ding* "Please step back. Doors closing"... (doors try to close, open again) *ding, ding, ding* "Please step back. Doors closing"... repeat, repeat, repeat ad infinitum BECAUSE SOME ASSHOLES SQUEEZE THEIR FAT ASSES ON AT FARRAGUT NORTH BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO FUCKING LAZY TO WALK TO METRO CENTER SO THE DOORS CAN'T CLOSE. Please. You really think Metro would make it so the doors don't pop open? That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Oh good lord that video is funny. Of course the doors pop open. If they did'nt pop open, think of how many times you would see body parts (like fat asses) stuck in the doors when the trains finally stop somewhere?
