Don't fuggedaboutit: writeaboutit

New York's favorite internet puppet Johnny T talks to the NYTimes about the violation of subway etiquette that is "manspreading."


Here's Johnny T's video detailing all his subway tips.

In case you're unfamiliar, manspreading is when men sit and take up more than their fair share of space by spreading their legs wide. Unless your junk is the size of a grapefruit, there's literally no reason to do this other than male entitlement.

Don't agree that this is a real issue? Check out this Tumblr blog.


In his interview with the Times, Johnny T encourages you to ask nicely if you can sit down if you encounter a manspreader. Personally, I just plop down in the seat because the look on dudes' faces when I do that is priceless.
