Winnipeg Love & Hate

Winnipeg: Love & Hate is a photography blog that showcases the beauty of Winnipeg in surreally intense colour. Updated often, it's absolutely worth checking out, and even staying for a while.

No Such Thing

Here at WoW, we are often riding the bus. It's our unofficial headquarters.
A bus ad has been making us crazy, perhaps you've seen it, it features a leisure suit wearing gentleman advertising Lifestyle Condoms (sorry we've cut him out of the picture). I truly hope that the point of the ad is that men like him should never procreate, but I digress.

The thing that bugs us about this ad is the presence of this button. It looks like a computer keyboard button and it says "undo". The caption being "There is no such thing in life".
I encourage our readers to look down at their own keyboards. How many of them have this button? I'm guessing none. Because not only does it not exist in real life, it does not exist on a keyboard.

We here at WoW encourage clever bus ads, but have yet to see any.

Plus, I've already had my cootie shot, so...

Nor-ender: Man, I'm from the North End, screw the 10 second rule. We had the 8 minute rule. If nobody kicks it, you get to eat it.

If you drop an anvil on someone in real life it will kill them.

Enthusiastic Teen: [singing] Hello my sweetheart, hello my darling, hello my ragtime gaaal!


I used to watch that Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show, and that frog would come on and sing, and I was like, what the hell? That doesn't happen in real life!

PS. Did you enjoy our little April Fool's prank?

Weirdos of Winnipeg has been shut down by the city. Apparently we are contributing to a negative perception of Winnipeg--we've been contacted by city lawyers and asked to take the site down. Sorry.

Not really.

Only, not actually.
