Metropolitan Etiquette Authority: Mind Your Manners Signs Around New York

New York artist Jay Shells got tired of the rude manners of fellow New Yorkers and decided to take matters into his own hands. He created official-looking etiquette signs around Manhattan, under the guise of the "Metropolitan Etiquette Authority."

I agree with the idea that people have a right to express themselves, but others have a right to not be offended as well, to a point. I mean I should be able to wear a shirt with a picture of mohammed on it as well. Also, I think the point of the sagging pants being debilitating, in the sense it can make you fall down and hurt yourself might be reason enough to say it is not right, especially if we had socialized health care. I mean we arent too keen on people smoking.

What your are doing is great. It is the valiant attempt to recapture the feeling of honor and respect missing more and more in today's generations.

People have the right to wear what they want how they want, just like I have the right to point and laugh out loud. Surprisingly it only takes one person to start it and soon the entire crowd is laughing at the baggy pants guy. Social shame, it can be effective.

Not my style either. It is silly and ridiculous, but people have the right to be silly and ridiculous in what they wear. I am very surprised that most comments support taken rights away from other people. Mike's comments aren't retarded.
