McDonald’s Mondays: BAD sign placement


Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. This isn’t a post condemning, condoning, or commenting on abortion in any way shape or form. It’s not intended to offend or annoy anyone. It’s merely a commentary on some terrible marketing placement.

That being said, who was the genius at the billboard company that ok’d this pairing of signs? Maybe they were booked by different sales reps and nobody had the heart to call either client to break the strange news. Maybe they did call and neither client wanted to be the one to lose their spot. Whatever happened, it’s beyond bizarre to see these two images on the same ad block. I can’t imagine how many drivers stop the car and back up to make sure they weren’t seeing things.

Local comic shop wants you to be a super hero


SmartCanucks has a national audience. As such, we normally try to avoid topics that are specific to local small businesses not because we don’t love them, but because it’s just the nature of the beast. But sometimes a story just needs to be shared.

About 5 weeks ago, a new comic book store opened it’s doors on Queen St. in Niagara Falls. Pulp Comics is a cool little shop that offers everything you’d expect in a comic book shop, but that’s not the story here. The story is in how the shop came to be, and what they’d like to see from all of us.


SmartCanucks Caption Challenge: Week 28


Happy Canada Day, everyone! The patriotic posts continue on this fine day of national celebration as this weeks caption challenge has us taking a look a man with the jaw of our Queen!

Optical illusions courtesy of digital cameras always rock (I’ve been enjoying the ones with album art for years now), and this one is no different. So what would expect a man with the mouth of a Queen to say?

Everyone loves a Mountie


Over the years, more than a few celebrities have dawned the garb of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Seeing as today is Canada Day, I thought it might be fun to take a little photo journey through our celebrity snapshot book and see who has donned the garb of the mountie in the past.

Thanks couponlady for suggesting this Trojan freebie.

First of all this website may NOT BE SAFE FOR WORK since you have to go through the process of choosing a guy or girl escort first before you can get your freebie. Apparently some of the members on the forum had fun playing with their “escort” but probably not a good idea for work 😛

Also make sure your speakers are not too loud lol
