Unsuck DC Metro Holiday Gift Guide

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but it's not too late to give the gift of WMATA. Here are but a few suggestions.

Metro shower curtain: Contemplate delays while you get ready to face them. Available at B, B and B.







Yes, you are, and chances are you'll be on the Red Line for a long time, so you might as well be comfortable in this nifty Tee. Get one for all your favorite lines!




Still not sure? Why not try the WMATA online store, where you can find such treasures as DC Transit cuff links ($125), a framed 2005 inauguration memorial farecard for $24 (no fare included) or, for the kids, a Metro Squeeze train toy ($7) so they can see that to which Metro apparently aspires.

No one saw that coming

"...a Metro Squeeze train toy ($7) so they can see that to which Metro apparently aspires."

OUCH!

Is it irony that on the purchase page for the metro escalator picture is a sugggestion that "you may also be interested in" a statue of the Mother Mary called "Our Lady of Knock"?

I dunno, the squeeze toy is kinda cool... like one of those stress-release dolls they sell at the mall. Train delay? Squeeze the hell out of your little squeeze toy... or light it on fire, or beat it against the wall, or whatever makes you feel a little better about another commute on Metro.

Haha where did you guys find that stuff? Those are the last images I'd want in my home! Although the squishy foam bus in the WMATA store is kind of comforting - if only they were actually made of foam...

According to that magnet, PG County intends to annex the Minnesota Avenue and Deanwood stops. Someone alert the militia! Quick, to the guns!
