Crows Nest Barbershop

How’s this for a barber shop restroom! Cheers for the cut, Crows Nest Barbershop 💇‍♂️🚽


Gale’s Snack Bar

On an unassuming corner in Toronto’s inner-east lies the very charming Gale’s Snack Bar. Step inside the building and you’re transported back to the 70’s, both in terms of the furnishings and the prices – you can eat a substantial meal here for less than a fiver! And it’s great to see that along with vintage decor also comes a vintage restroom 😎🚽

Also check out their vintage paper towel dispenser, I’ve never seen anything like this before:

And here’s what I mean by eating for less than a fiver:


Jimmy Jazz

Jimmy Jazz was the final stop of my whirlwind tour of Guelph and I was very pleased with the quality of dive they had going on inside these dunnies. As avid Toilographers know, each time I come across heavily-graffitied washroom walls I like to take note of their many words of wisdom – there were certainly some philosophical & existential corkers here at the Jazz.

Education is a system of imposed ignorance. – N. Chomsky

It’s no good measure of health, to be found to be well-adjusted in a profoundly sick society. – J. Krishnamurti

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. – Edward Bernays

Sorry, damaged my shitty hipster love in a car accident
– Dude, fuck off, you’re at the Jazz
– It’s ok, no one cares
– Here’s to the few who forgive what you do and the few who don’t even care

Antisocial behaviour is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists. – Nikola Tesla

Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death… if you repeat a lie big enough, long enough and often enough then the people will eventually believe the lie. They are more likely to believe a big lie than a small one. – Adolph Hitler

Jimmy’s Jazz didn’t taste as good as my dads
– Multiple dads?

No doubt I’m cooler than your cooler full of Palm Bays
– But what about my fridge?

RIP Uncle Anus

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. – Aristotle

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy…
If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing…
Blah blah. – Bob Marley

Watching TV is like taking black spray paint to your third eye. – Bill Hicks

I’m not taking a shit! I’m leaving one.

Fear is your only god!
– Except those who fear God

He who fucks nuns will later join the church. – J. Strummer

I’m in love with a ghost girl, all alone in a lonely world

There is a demon in me and I can’t separate my flesh so when it crawls onto you just know I want to hold my breath
– Give your balls a tug, make sure they’re still attached

This entire room used to be filled with intelligent, beautiful quotes. WTF, Jazz?

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. – Martin Luther King

[Spoken in Spanish accent]
Amigo, there seems to be copious amounts of shite written on these walls by pseudo-intellectuals quoting famous people… which seems rather ironic to me since we’re in a room littered, literally, with a lot of written figurative shit.
¿Comprende?
