Spoof Tube stickers 'brighten journeys'
Guerilla Transport for London stickers with spoof notices for passengers are being plastered on Tube trains and stations.
The notices, in the same colour and font as genuine TfL signs, include "No eye contact. Penalty £200" and "We apologise for any incontinence caused during these engineering works".
Others suggest commuters should offer their seats to "drunks less able to stand" and advise: "Peak hours may necessitate you let other people sit on your lap."
A spokesman told the BBC: "It's a form of rebellion, whether it be due to the current climate of doom and gloom or people wanting to brighten their day."
The stickers, apparently designed to brighten commuters' daily journeys on the London Undergound, are bring celebrated on a Facebook page.
However, a spokesman for the British Transport Police branded the stickers "unwanted vandalism that causes criminal damage".

what do you think?
unwanted vandalism - grow up will you (BTP) you all considered "Banksy" as a unwanted vandal, but now they are worth something, oh he is an artist.
...it depends. If these sticker attacks are causing confusion to less experienced travellers, tourists visiting London - then they are a nuisance and must be stopped. A little fun is one thing but I am fed up with the high level of tolerance of litter, discarded gum, discarded food, graffiti and lack of maintenance on our public transport and streets. We ALL pay for their use (even if you don't walk in streets or use public transport) through taxation and subsidies, etc., as well as paying crippling fares. Why should we have to put up with the unruly minority's sad behaviour and filth? You can just visualise the dirty, unkempt homes that some people must live in if they treat public places in that way!
I saw a report on this, and on the sticker packets it says "You must get the permission of the driver before using!" yeah right.
