Based on this poster, I think Canada’s advertisers may have a
fundamental misunderstanding of what people like to do at a party.

Hilarious, silly and confounding travel photos, captioned for your snarky pleasure. Because travel is like life -- and life is often funny.
Listen, I don’t know why this shiny cartoon octopus is disgruntled,
or how he became the spokes-creature for apple ice cream pops
oozing with raspberry slime.
I just know he’s proof that all around the world,
marketers are convinced that ten-year-old boys
will eat anything…as long as it’s vile.

It’s so awkward when one’s tombstone bears a typo for eternity.
To be fair, the Bible messed up first, in Isaiah 58:8:
…thy righteousness shall go before thee;
the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward.
It’s “reward,” people.
Or, “have thy back.”

In the Philippines, custom-built jeepneys
utilize scrap parts from Japanese autos
and serve as the country’s most popular
form of public transportation.
Each jeepney has a little something special to say about its driver,
like, um…this one.

In the Philippines, “wang-wang” is popular street lingo for “blaring sirens.”
The country’s president, Benigno Aquino III,
associates the term with politicians and wealthy folks
who yell, shout, and otherwise abuse their power.
In Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport,
posters like this one are used to shame those
who try to sling their weight around and cut security lines.
So, in the spirit of the Philippines…
here’s wishing all your airports are no wang-wang zones.

This well-armed gentleman’s job is not to break up riots
or keep the peace in a time of war.
He stands guard at the gates of the splashy Mahogany Bay Cruise Center
on the southwest coast of Roatan, one of Honduras’ three Bay Islands.
Stationed at the exit, it would appear that he’s keeping his country safe…
This Roc-a-Fella wants you to know that you can stand under his umbrella,
any old time.
