'I'm so hungover, please have mercy': alternative 'baby on board' tube badges

Unless you're pregnant, those 'baby on board' badges are both a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, they can save you making a seriously wrong judgement on the 'are they pregnant or just a bit podgy?' dilemma. But no matter how nice a person you are, there's always a slight sense of disappointment when you've finally bagged yourself a seat on your commute and you spot someone wearing one.

But now, London-based creative team Olivia and Irene have made a load of alternative tube badges, so that we can all get in on the action. And there's one for everyone, from the glamourous OAP – 'I'm 65+ but I don't look it', to the people on the verge of vomming – 'I'm so hungover, please have mercy' and even the 'clean eater' – 'I've got indigestion from too much kale'. 

There's even one for when you think you 'might be pregnant', as well as a badge for those suffering from serious first world problems – 'my selfie stick broke.' Sure, hangover sickness might not compare to morning sickness but we can all agree that a sweaty tube carriage is pretty much the worst place for a hungover person, which is why we'd like to get our hands on one of these bad boys, stat.
