I've seen people eat all kinds of burritos and things on the T that can be smelled. McDonald's food as well. I've also seen people eat Chinese food out of styrofoam containers like the kind you get when you order "luncheon special #1", "Luncheon special #2", etc.

I'm sure the T's response would be "Switch, signal, doesn't matter to us. Now, have you tried our new smartphone app?"
