As every observational comic who lives in New York knows, MTA buses are slow. Not content to merely proclaim this fact for the laughs of a knowing audience, comedian Mark Malkoff actually tested this hypothesis out, mounting a Big Wheel kids’ tricycle and racing a bus a mile from 10th Avenue to Madison Avenue. Without spoiling the outcome, MTA buses really are slow.
The race begins at the 50-second mark, though the setup is worth watching.
