Legacy

by Joey deVilla on April 30, 2012

Gravestones: the first reads "Bernard P Hopkins - Dec 2 1904 - Jan 22 1993". The second reads: "Legacy of BPH: Liar - Thief - Cheat - Selfish - Unsharing - Unloving - Unkind - Disloyal - Dishonorable -  Unfaithful"

To incur this level of wrath even after your death takes some doing.

Read These Signs Carefully!

by Joey deVilla on April 29, 2012

People don’t read instructions carefully when they’re sober, never mind when they’re at a pub. I’m sure these signs are a constant source of awkwardness (for the victims) and amusement (for the audience) at whatever bar they’re at.

I thought I’d help get the word out: Rayanne and Nicole are holding a Toronto Tumblr meetup tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. until whenever at Sin & Redemption. “Come for the excellent beer selection, stay for the hilarious internet nerdiness,” Nicole says.

I don’t have a Tumblr — the Accordion Guy blog has been serving that function so incredibly well for nearly 11 years — but many of my friends do, Anitra’s in town and hasn’t been there, and I haven’t been to S&R in a dog’s age. See you there!

If you want to attend, be sure to RSVP on the meetup’s Facebook page.

Game of Thrones and the 2012 U.S. Presidential Eelction

I didn’t come up with the idea for this graphic, which seems to have originated on this page at The Nest. I just spruced it up, re-did the text using the Game of Thrones (or, as Anitra and I like to call it, Boobs and Beheadings) typeface, Trajan Pro, and here you have it. Share and enjoy!
