Tube Trolls: Funny Signs Spotted On The London Underground


Pay close attention the next time you ride the London Underground: a group of creative commuters are shaking things up by re-labeling signage inside "the Tube." The subversive street artists are cheering up riders by slightly modifying signs that passengers see over and over again on their daily commutes, including maps and warnings (plus a few of their own creations for good measure).

In what is probably an illegal act, the artists are making cracks at how people on public transportation tend to avoid eye contact at all costs and modifying maps using good old British humor. Click through the gallery below to see a collection of hacked signs collected on Reddit, and feel free to clue us in on others you've seen in the comments below!
