!! OMG, Japanese Squeeze: 'Tokyo Compression' !!
Talk about fudge packers, I thought the subways were squishy in London and New York, and the passengers pushy in Gay Paris, but this is a blooming TRAIN-CRASH-HOT-MESS.
Tokyo has over 35 million sardines [I mean people] working in an area of only 8'000 square feet, which basically means a mother load of commuters. I love their solution to the strain on transportation "hey lets just squish them in...problem solved".
No really, they have employed "passenger arrangement staff" -otherwise known as "people pushers"- to squash and squeeze commuters into the train at every stop along the way. I'm not entirely sure how safe this fudge-docking-factory-farming-choochoo is.
Reminiscent of when Jack bonks Rose in the sweaty carriage on the Titanic, Hong Kong-based German artist Michael Wolf has taken to snapping the squish.

Clickety-Clack to see them getting squished even bigger:
