If you regularly ride the subway (or are aware of our previous post) you probably know that it's a strange place. One day, a guy brings his pet peacock and you feel like you're visiting a zoo; another there's a crazy Russian riding a fire extinguisher as if he's an on-set Hollywood stuntman. And it's quite useful, too. I mean, think of the long silences you'd have to endure during lunch breaks with your colleagues if no one was sharing their crazy commute stories. Bored Panda has compiled a list of extraordinary subway passengers and if their photos won't make you use the public transport more, nothing will. Scroll down to meet the gang and upvote the ones you'd like to meet the most. Or least. You decide.

Fun fact: The term peacock is reserved for the male peafowl; the female is known as a peahen, and the immature offspring are sometimes called peachicks. Another fun fact: I don't get invited to parties very often.

Or it's an easier way to carry it around, birds are heavier than you would expect and they can accidentally dig their claws into your arm.
