SEPTA Removes Hilarious Hoax Signs

Pranksters slipped face “Notice to the Public” signs into Philadelphia’s Frankford-Market El regional train yesterday. (See above for an example of a sign.) The Philadelphia Inquirer has more:

One or more hoaxsters – or jokesters – started posting the signs as early as last week, SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch said. Soon, pictures of the official-looking posters were showing up on blogs, Twitter, and Facebook. The messages broadly lampooned the transit system and its riders, so SEPTA had the notices removed.

“We do find the message very offensive in general,” not just the anti-SEPTA parts, Busch said.

Offensive…and pretty dang funny.
