Squirrel Stairs

November 2, 2010

Submitted by Sophie Idsinga

sometimes you have to feel bad for the squirrels of Toronto. Once again construction is obstructing their stairways and elevators. However will they get into the trees? And why is it the loons and the seals are never inconvenienced? It’s because squirrels are black, isn’t it?

Interesting also that washrooms apparently are just to the right but if you don’t want to climb a barrier to get to them, you’ll need to go to City Hall. Where there’s never any barrier to defecation (bah-ha).

Torontoddities: Buttcon

October 15, 2010

You can’t imagine our disappointment when we followed the signs to this butts convention only to find a construction site. I guess it’s only the proposed site of Buttcon 2010. Still, I felt mislead. They should put some dates on that sign. Seriously.

Also known as the Church of Babies Falling from the Sky. I think the crucifix T turning the S into a dollar sign is a nice use of typography. Subtle, but effective.

Impure sweat

May 13, 2010

I guess at some point this martial arts studio decided their sweat wasn’t pure enough and the sign had to be altered. Sadly, the move to more honest signage couldn’t prevent them from going out of business. It’s now a gym with various excercise machines in the window. No word on the purity of the gym’s sweat.
