Its almost 2011 people, how do we not know this already?

Just wash your gloves dummy!

I am also going to take this opportunity to announce the first ever Street Challenge (and if you point out that this particular picture was not taken in the street, instant loss, keep it in mind, smart guy)!

If you can tell me where this particular picture was taken, you win!

What do you win?

I don't know yet.

To be honest, its gonna depend if I like the winner or not.

Write your answers in the comments section and I will announce the winner when there is one.

*** I've been thinking about it, and I'm going to change the rules. Big whoop. Its my contest. I do what I want.

Actual location, or best guess (which has to include elaborate details and potential reasons for just such a sign).

PS I thought of the prize. You're pretty much gonna be mad if you don't win.

Sagely advice from below the flourescent lighting

Best I can reckon, this sign says, 'The best present is getting home safe and sound'. Seems to me like some sort holiday season anti drinking and driving campaign.

I also literally just realized that its double Treasurely because its posted on the inside of the bus.

But in all seriousness, I sure hope that baby didn't drive home, he is so wasted he can't even hold up his own head.

Thanks for this gem JN. You're two for two!

Nothing says Merry Christmas!

...quite like a borderline inappropriately posed festive statue.

Who cleared this?

Thanks for the treasure JN, great eye homeboy.

Warning (follow up)!

Silver lining; I found 34 cents.


Regardless of what your pals might tell you on a Treasure run, never EVER stick your hand in a Street Toilet.

Awesome on exactly two levels.

Level 1- Caddy herse with a skull sticker in the back window.

Level 2 - While not pictured, this car is parked in front of a school with a 5 minute parking limit. Like you're in a hurry, why would you park in a 5 minute space acting all, 'oh I have so many things to do today, I can only be here for 5 minutes before my schedule is completely muffed!'?

Seriously, you're dead!

This is

the dude I was talking about before. Remember, the single headed double hatted fellow?
Two Caps one Noggin
Well I found a brief comprehensive explaination as to why he is there.

I also got to thinking, that one time at the Tulip Fest with this big Aussie Cat, I had this delicious ice cream and waffle sandwhich thing. So I guess I jumpped the gun in my last post. Tulip Fest doesn't suck (or at least as much as I had originally cliamed).

... and the Dutch!

Here in Canada, we love your vast array of cheeses, your OG 'Green' technology - The Windmill and that statue at the starting (or finish, I can never tell which is which) point of the World's Largest Skating Rink.

You know, the guy with two hats? I don't really get it, he only has one head but two hats. Its art.

That said, get your damn wooden shoes off our Dodge Ball court!

Oh yeah, and Tulip Fest sucks!

And the winner is...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that I present to you, Mr. Street Treasure 2010!

I'd like to thank everyone who entered this year's contest, and would like to remind future entrants that  this is a family show. I don't care how 'tasteful' you think that picture of you in the canal is, Bill. But if you send me anything like that ever again, I'll have to go the proper authorities. That said, I did appreciate your enthusiasm.

Thats no Moon. Its a space station.

A friend of mine sent me this piece, he really wanted to find it, he loves rewards.

Who the hell don't?

At first I was totally into it. But then I got to thinking... How much could that bucket of bolts actually be worth? Then, I remembered something about the ship that made the Kessel Run in lesss than 12 parsecs and was right back on board.

But then I looked at the contact information and I knew something was up. I couldn't quite place it, but knew...

Then, 2 movies later, Admiral Ackbar hit the nail on the head.

Whew, we really dodged a bullet on that one.

If I had only known

While not native to, I have lived here long enough to know whats what.
Or so I thought anyway.
 Do you know how many Air Miles I've spent on trips to Lausanne when I had this almost litterally in my back yard.

Boy do I feel foolish.

Friday, November 19, 2010

Oh this?

Sure you can have it.
When you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Have you ever...

... been to the Experimental Farm and wondered what sorts of experiments are happening?

Well I have, and judging by the look on this goat's face,
whatever it is they do there. Its baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

DIY in Oshawa

It seemed that (for at least a while there) bands and artists from Oshawa and its environs really embraced the idea and the culture of DIY. Upon my triumphant return to NEB's Funworld I discovered that the DIY ethic has transcended the realm of the independent artist and is cropping up all over the place.
I wonder if they have a stash of these in the printer tray at the ready in case this one gets puked on.

And now for something totally unrelated

I will always love you, Jean Claude Damn Van.

Whose house?

Our house!




Aw, dammit Carl. Not again!

The Seat of the Beast

Everyone sees the devil's number come up from time to time: the total on a receipt being "$666"; a broken digital display that displays 8:00 as "6:66"; a really good gas tank usage displaying 666 kilometres on your tip-o-metre.

But you never see the throne of the Dark Lord. The place where he rests his hooves when taking form on this mortal earth. The seat supports have been transfixed into an anarchistic form while supporting the pressure of Lucifier's evil.

Ironically enough, this chair was discarded on a street that houses both a catholic church, a religious university and a convent.

I wasn't kidding.

Remember that photo my knife concealing friend sent in? Well if not, catch up here, http://streettreasure.blogspot.com/2010/10/do-you-see-what-i-see-i-see-treasure.html

I just wanted to reiterate the importance of my last warning. Recently, a flamingo crossed her, look what happened to him.

Dude, she is gnarly.

That seems like a reasonable request.

Lions, Cheetahs, Jaguars, Margays, Wildcats, Bobcats, Cougars, Tabbies, Ocelots, Panthers, Sabre Toothed Cats, Siberian Tigers, Albino Siberian Tigers - All fine.
But if you even think about parking your Lynx, you're outta here Mister!

One of these things just doesn't belong.

Who the heck had a big turkey dinner at the corner of Norman and Preston?

And now that I think of it, it was like 12:26 AM.

Oopsy daisy!

Well thats the last time I have a Bhut Jolokia. Can't even throw them things in the bin without incident.

I should have known better.

Slap Hands!

Grim visions of the apocalypse... Or a failed high five that took place shortly after the most memorable chip truck experience of my life?

You be the judge.

Treath from Above!

So, was waiting in line for a festive showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show with some cronies, and spotted some treasure from a most unlikely source. The sky.

Its the good stuff too. And I swear to Santa if one more person makes a 'This isn't typical weather for October in this part of the country' comment, they're eating a snowball.

Do you see what I see? I see a treasure!

Todays treasure was sent to me by an avid ST fan who has a sharp eye and carries even sharper knives.
Don't mess with her or you'll end up like the subject of todays photograph.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get your hands on one of these things?

Doom Ram

Everyone has the same reaction when a big, white windowless van drives by. Free candy, comic books and puppies become the butt of many a joke.

While this is all well and good. A clear message has been sent from white, windowless vans everywhere.

The threat is real. Take it seriously.
