Subway Outnumbers Subways

From the Department of Questionable Milestones comes the news that Subway — the international chain of sandwich shops mostly known for trying to pass off limp bags of soggy precooked steak as the fillings of a Philly Cheese from Brooklyn to Dubai — is outpacing the New York MTA. In Manhattan, there are now more Subway shops than subway stops.

Apparently, the only hope the MTA has to catch up is to speed up completion of the Second Avenue subway, which isn’t expected to be completed for another decade. Valuable time lost for the already buckling MTA as their identity is stolen right out from under their noses by a company best known for making some of the worst hoagies on Earth.

    …..Don’t order a philly at Subway. They’re awful! Microwaved onions and peppers don’t cut it. The BMT is the sandwich of choice, with mustard, spinach leaves, tomato, bell pepper and onion. A cold-cut sandwich, at least, is expected to be cold. And notice that the BMT is nowhere to be found on the “healthy eating” list…

    That image made me feel like I tripped acid and forgot. Quizno’s is doing the same thing out here, popping up everywhere like they think they are Starbucks or something.

    We just got a Subway here on base. It’s packed every hour that it’s open.

    I hadn’t had a Subway sub for years and, was presently surprised. They’re doing something right at this one I guess.
