Meme-Hunting Expedition: Toronto
Associated in any manner with the concept of a “buffet” (an inherently memetic device that seems “what if” in nature but actually exists in 94% of human cultures).
Seconds after leaving my Megabus, after a ~15-hour trip from Manhattan, I perceived this meme—in the distance, across the street. Seems self-explanatory. “Over 100 Item” unconventional-grammar-usage seems both vaguely daring and simply functional (is the “s” really necessary…most would say “no” but few would actually omit it). Seems to feature sushi/sashimi as “enticements”—reasonably, I feel, neither “downplaying” nor overstating the situation. Standing on the sidewalk, holding my iPhone in the air, I peripherally noted that the sashimi was featured using a primitive foregrounding technique, allowing the meme to express a 3D element, presaging the popularity of 3D movies, and that the “Lunch Special” banner, set low (out-of-view of my photograph, I noticed later), seemed bleakly pleasing.

It’s the end of the year so you know what that means: it’s time for end-of-the-year album “Best Ofs”!
Your love. Your passion. Your taste. That’s the reason you’re here. You still belong, even if you don’t feel like it right now. Your taste can be killer even if your ability is questionable.
There are a multitude of misconceptions about the service industry and I feel it is my duty to set a few of them straight.
One should never look like they’re trying too hard, especially not when they’re in the midst of trying so hard they’re giving themselves an ulcer.
