It's Feb. 18, and we've already exceeded our quota for stories on Subway for 2009

First, sorry! Anyway, we're just admiring the original deals that Blimpie's and Subway have going right now...and, in my estimation, Subway had the deal first.




More important, though. Slum Goddess got a shot of the Subway Sub guy dude handing out fliers on St. Mark's to the new Second Avenue location. (It was part of her "Fancy Embarrassing Brunch" post yesterday.)

In these dire economic times, we all need a superhero like Subway Dude.

i think it's your blogalistic duty to further investigate those $5 sub offers. are the blimpie's subs really 12 inches long? are the subway subs really a foot long? is the Subway Dude's costume edible?

The subway dude seemed so confused..Everyone was snapping photos and dirty punk rock girls were hugging him..

I've actually never eaten at a Blimpie. But I would do so as part my blogalistic duty.

I'm curious if they Subway employee knew that he would be dressing up as a sub and handing out fliers that day. While his footwear is just fine, it's not the sporty look that you'd expect a Subway Dude to wear.

Ah, thanks Eden! I was curious what kind of reception he received.

I have a vague memory of the Dominos Noid mascot getting punched while handing out coupons on Houston and Essex in the mid 1990s.
