Who were Yonge and Bloor?
Trapeze artists in the early 1900’s. They came to Toronto seeking fame and, hopefully, fortune but instead plummeted to their deaths in the center of what is now a busy intersection. Trapeze Marketing (www.trapeze.com) was actually named in honour of their tragic demise. ~ Toronto Historian, Jakob
Is this a pimple, or a boil?
It’s an extra nipple. The seeping white liquid is milk. Harvest it and put it in the coffee of your house guests. ~ Dr. Jakob
Are either of you Studio Ghibli fans?
Jakob: In Toy Story 3 last night, I responded to the Totoro cameo by cooing, out loud, “Totoro!” The Japanese girl sitting beside me giggled. Later, she bawled at the end of the movie. Some people might call this the result of “heavy-handed emotional cues” but they have no soul.
We probably have more Studio Ghibli movies on our shelf than any other franchise besides Star Trek.
Response via Facebook: I do so have a soul. (Kyprieth)
The end: Nigh or not nigh?
As long as Bill Nighy is involved, it’s all going to be okay.
Seriously though, I think we’re at the end of the beginning of the end but the end of the end is still quite a ways off from beginning since we have to get through the whole middle of the end before the beginning of the end of the middle begins and the end can truly begin. ~ Prophet Jakob
