Nothing Says "I Love You" Better Than A Dildo, Bank Street, Ottawa

The other day, I was shopping at Herbs & Spice, a food store on Bank Street. I walked out carrying heavy bags and in a hurry to go back home, and fell face to face with this sign from the shop next door, Wilde’s: “Nothing says ‘I love you’ better than a dildo”.

I was sort of taken aback for a second, then it made me giggle like a schoolgirl. Probably the bluntness of the sign mixed with the expectation of corny family-friendly ads for the holiday season. Or my weird French mind—who knows!

I actually went back there on Saturday to snap the picture—I was relieved the sign was still there!

  1. Crap! I did not know what a dildo was and I googled it at work.

    Thank You Zhu! Now my employer thinks it knows my little dirty secret!

    What a FAIL! LOL!

  2. LOL I love Wilde’s… they always put out crazy stuff like this.

    Back during the bus strike a giant sign read “Free lube to OC Transpo drivers so they can go f*** themselves”.

    Another time they had a freaking FIST shaped dildo in their windows….
