Nail Clipping on the Subway: A Battle for the Ages [Video]

Whew, just when we were getting placid on our daily commutes, that little microcosm o' life, there comes this video in which two ostensible strangers battle it out -- to the nail! -- over whether the one should or should not clip his nails on the subway. (He should not.) Still, this is amusing, probably because it didn't happen on April Fool's Day. Upon being informed that it's gross to clip one's nails al tren, our clipper, a "nail-clipping performance artist" says, plaintively, "Lay off of me, and let me clip my fucking nails," then sits next to the nail-clipping-complainer and clip-clip-clips. Whadda guy.

Oh Lordie, I would have agreed with the complainer, except he's another self-righteous bicyclist. Sets his argument back about 20 places.

get your fucking bike off the subway and ride it and you wouldn't have to see french men clipping your nails.

you're not supposed to sit when you're carrying a bike in the subway. neither should one clip his nail.

I agree with you, and not because of the bike. The guy complaining is a huge asshole.

But the guy complaining about the nail clipping is blocking three seats with his bike. Now who's the asshole?
