Because your sarcasm hats are firmly on and you can read headlines, I assume you’ve realized that these people aren’t eating tasty things, exactly — in one case, chips scooped off a Metro North train’s floor, in the other, large bites out of an extruded polystyrene container (because styrofoam is a trademarked word for insulation, someone would otherwise point out).
And although there will be no answer to the question of “Why? Why would you eat chips off a train’s floor/an inedible, flavorless container?” we felt a need to ask which one is ultimately grosser.

Dropping them on a well-traveled and likely germy surface is pretty disgusting, but according to Gothamist the girl caught on video doing just that allegedly ate a $5 bill right before the eyewitness started filming her as she went for the chips with gusto. So that certainly ups the ante, though we don’t see her in action.
Meanwhile, this guy in the United Kingdom (via Gawker) seems to be quite enjoying his extruded polystyrene container mixed with whatever food it was designed to hold.
