New York FML Subway Sign Coming Down: MTA

The MTA promises to change new signage at a 14th Street subway station that now boasts a profane internet punchline.

Because the M train is replacing the V train, a previously innocuous subway sign now reads FML.

For the uninformed, FML is internet slang for "f**k my life."

"I guarantee you the people who install the signs have absolutely no idea what that [phrase] means," NYC Transit spokesman Charles Seaton said. "We weren't positive of what that might have meant, but we're sure that there are thousands of New Yorkers who might know what it means."

The new sign will feature the L symbol below the F and the M.

What do you think: was the FML sign offensive?
