Just Have A Slice Of Hansel And Gretel

It's Canada Day tomorrow, and I'll be largely scarce. This flag is hanging in an office complex atrium downtown. As I was looking up for this shot, it seems to be an appropriate opposite to tomorrow's theme of Look Down.


As for that title? I thought a bit of humour ends the month nicely. Life Of Pie is a bakery in Old Ottawa South. Last year they moved a few doors down on Bank Street to larger quarters with room for a few tables inside. The shop specializes in both dinner and dessert pies. This sign was in the window at its previous location.


These following images are from a couple of cars I came across at various points in recent weeks, with humour and a science fiction vibe to their window stickers.


This last one is a chalkboard sign outside a restaurant in the Glebe.

  5. The Grumpy Cat sign and the one about the misbehaving children being made into pies made me laugh. LOL! :)

  14. @Grace: I find myself wondering how long those stick figure stickers have been around. I can't remember them when I was a kid.

    @Janey: you're welcome!

    @RedPat: I'm more of a Star Wars fan than a Doctor Who fan, so the storm trooper suits me more. Given that the other one, I believe, is a decepticon, the owner of that car liked sci fi villains!

    @Bill: thank you!

    @Marleen: it's a riot.

    @Lowell: thanks!
