Ballston Metro, what the hell.
One of our city's many Metro riders found perhaps the best evidence to support the WMATA ban on food and drink in the transit system. Paulo Ordoveza provided the above photograph of a hot dog sitting on the Ballston platform, where countless Orange Line trains pass daily, on Feb. 21. He stumbled upon this monstrosity on the Vienna-bound platform. A gross, ancient hot dog, accumulating bacteria and rot and disdain and smells and any number of indictments against humanity for what it — and its presence among our transit — represents.
God help us, D.C. Look what we're doing!
