Have you seen this flier?

It's amazing the stuff one can find scrolling through Twitter before heading off to bed. Take, for instance, this clever little gem spotted and shared by Show & Tell Gallery a little earlier tonight. The gallery's website is a great source of info on various street and pop-surrealist art projects, so when I saw a tweet that read, "This was the best thing I have seen all day," I was pretty sure I was in for something of a treat.

And it didn't disappoint. I've always liked self-reflexive stuff like this -- you know, those things that refer themselves (it is this flier) and to something else (questions always are never completely self-referential) at the same time. The simple but cheeky title of this post, of course, tries to make this clear. And perhaps this is even why much of what I write reveals a certain self-consciousness of the process by which its put together.

Ugh. That last line is probably just enough of autobiographical indulgence for the late hour. I'm not sure exactly where this was taken -- does the flier for The Shop/Parts & Labour below it indicate some proximity? -- but it put a smile on my face, so I thought I'd pass it along.
