Melbourne man Chris Harrigan took to his Twitter to tell the most insane public transport troll story you're likely to read.
Harrigan told BuzzFeed, "The story, as far as I know, is completely true. Obviously I wasn't there so can't verify it, but my source seemed legit."
People were quick to champion the evil genius.
And then the jokes started rolling in.
The tweets even got picked up by the news wire services.
But of course, some questioned whether the story was too good to be true.
While a local chimed in to add legitimacy to the debate.
And some just didn't give a shit either way.
When contacted by BuzzFeed, Metro Trains said it could not confirm if the incident had occurred.
"We are trying to verify this incident but there is no exact time, date or location. There has been no video, photos or more specific details of the incident and there has been no incident report so we cannot verify that it occurred," Metro Trains said in a statement.
