Robot Johnny’s TTC Anagram Map

by Joey deVilla on February 23, 2006

It’s already been covered on BoingBoing, but I thought a Toronto-based blog like this one should mention John “Robot Johnny” Martz’s map of Toronto’s subway system with the station names replaced by anagrams of said names. It was inspired by a similar map made of the London Underground (whose creators have received a cease-and-desist notice from the don’t-know-fandom-when-they-see-it Underground’s lawyers).

I did anagrams for all the stations on Boston’s Orange Line, but they’re pretty much terrible (Roxbury Crossing / SOX RUN CYBORG, SIR). I’m sure someone more able will step up.

Since seeing this, I have started work on transforming Chicago’s station names.

This will take a couple days.
