The best piece of NYC street art ever in the history of NYC.

(click image, via Animal NY)
Graphic artist Jay Shells (his street name) is about to launch a social etiquette campaign with four very official looking signs he will be posting all over the city. Riffing off of the MTA logo, the signs are tagged "Metropolitan Etiquette Authority." Last year, Shells advised subway riders of proper behavior. I can't wait to see the other three signs. Note: You walking smartphone updaters (especially on 23rd street) deserve forearm shivers to your stupid faces. 
Previously in: cool street art.

you're going about it all wrong. the best way to handle facebook updaters is by checking your facebook updates. and then, you intentionally run into the other facebook updaters and go, "oh sorry! was just checking my facebook." because then they don't know if it is you or them who are the idiot.

Yes, well, I guess such a passive-aggressive move is a better option than the forearm shiver.

This is cool indeed. I find the title of your post though grandiosely stupid. "... in the history of the world". Also, have you seen absolutely ALL pieces of street art in NYC?

I get it, you were being hyperbolic again.

I like Shells' social etiquette campaigns. Still, they pale in comparison to the ones below, via Japan, of course. :)
