One New York teen would lick a NYC subway railing for a buck. Don't believe me? Here's the video.

Before you watch, two quick facts for any would-be-rail-lickers out there.

  • “It would be safer to lick a toilet than a handrail on a bus,” Charles P. Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona said.
  • The rail licker exposed himself to as many as 300,000 microbes, but experts say he probably won’t get sick.

GROSS. Hey, maybe he needed the buck to get his phone back from the "phone valet."
