Has the Authority hired local pun butcherer Kenneth Cole to do some freelance copy-writhing (get it?)? Previously, with its SubTalk posters, the MTA asked subway riders to stay off the trains if it’s raining generic aspirins, and to threaten our deadbeat friends in lieu of leaning on train doors. Now on an LIRR TrainTalk placard, they’ve hatched one of the best/worst puns I’ve ever cringed at. But it’s just begging for an animated cartoon shark or barracuda or blowfish(!) character, right? Or maybe it’s a shellfish—A lobster, crab, or a how bout a mussel? “Meet Mr. Mussel. He’s a Cell-Fish!” Jesus fucking Christ MTA, I hate getting pun headaches on Fridays.
