Remember some six months ago when they changed the lines around and these signs read “FML”? And remember how everyone had a chuckle, because “FML” was a thing people were saying on the internet around that time? “Fail,” said the meme-makers. And remember how the MTA actually changed the signs around, how they reordered the letters to this current configuration, basically because people were pointing and laughing? That was a stupid thing. The subway is permanent and unstoppable and the subway should know that about itself. For the subway, the goddamn subway, all three million tons and four hundred miles of it, for the subway to cave to a bit of internet pop is just gross.
