You know when I’m down to my socks it’s time for business. That’s why they’re called business socks!
+1 for Flight of the Conchords reference
that was more like +5
He’s giving him the business down there.
That’s awesome, but sadly fake (unless they’ve updated the sign in strange ways in the last little while I suppose, heh). Love the Flight of the Conchords reference though.
Ya it is fake. I’ve lived in Ottawa for 16 years and I have seen that sign. The bottom corner is an airport sign
OK, I give up. What in the world could this possibly be the international symbol for, other than business socks?
This is shopped. I drive by this sign about once a week. that bottom corner icon is normally a poppy denoting that there is a chapter of the Legion there.
My mistake it actually did look like that briefly. But it still doesn’t belong on oddly specific. It belongs on HackedIRL
That’s what I thought.
I thought I’d seen it there before, but turns out it was actually on FailBlog, back in July:
I also agree that the proper place for it is neither Oddly Specific nor FailBlog, but HackedIRL.
This is incorrect. This isn’t shopped. About a year back the sign was displayed with one empty square, and somebody decided to fill it in with this. It was fixed within a couple days.
HackedIRLs are usually things that have been physically modified, not Photoshopped.
No Thrawn! You weren’t supposed to say that! Now everyone will know that Ottawa sucks. (Aww, what the heck..I don’t really care either way.)
It is now, the township replaced it. The sign was hacked about a year ago – it made the local paper here.
Was it up for more than two… two minutes?
Whilst scrolling the comments, I read that as “…is normally a PUPPY,” and I thought, “Awesome!”
We need signs with puppies!
Team Building Exercise ’99!
Church, Food, Groceries, Boating, Gas, and Whores. Man, Ottawa has it all!
Yeah I used to live there. The whores are elected to the federal government.
Considering the general behavior of the Canadians that moved into my neighborhood last month, this doesn’t really seem all that far fetched.
Given the general behaviour of the Americans I have come across on the internet, I would say they are all jerks.
See how generalizing is bad?
Unless it’s true. Than it’s ok.
‘Then’ it’s ok.
Wow, look at that Prince of Parties havin’ some Business Time with that Leggy Blonde! Probably The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room, too! Seems like a great way to beat the Inner City Pressure.
my assumption/hope was that it was a stickman using a badly drawn petrol pump, done by a wonderfully oblivious/subversive graphic designer.
Well, I suppose it could be classed as a business!
It’s the world’s oldest profession; I guess they’re just really proud of their heritage there.
Nope. It was real. Someone went to the trouble of vandalizing it. Honestly, why leave a blank? It was asking for it. Part of the problem is how well done the prank was pulled off.
I love my city, WSL
Stickmen always seem to do it doggy style (at least on this site). Why is that?
What the … has socks got to do with that sign?
Can someone please explain, in words I can understand?
It’s a reference to the Flight of the Concords song “Business Time”
All hail FotC!
shopped. I drive by that sign every day.
NOT. I live in Ottawa. Check the link this time, please?
I love you for that FotC reference! “It’s business, it’s BUSINESS TIIIIIME…”
I’m just amazed how many people here live in Ottawa.
**giggle** I find it funny too. My friends and love this network of sites.
It does say this way to the “Centre d’affaires”.
Nope. It was real. Someone went to the trouble of vandalizing it. Honestly, why leave a blank? It was asking for it.
Sorry for the double post I meant to put it on the FailBlog comment list
I live there!
FOTC reference = awesome. NZ rep 🙂
