The Toronto Transit Commission isn’t a fan of your penis jokes.
Staff working with the publicly-funded commission recently took down a map at Downsview station after Torontonians began noticing something a little strange about it.
Basically, it looked like a giant dong.
The image, proudly erected for all to see, depicted the bus platform as being a long narrow shaft with a rounded tip that had been shaded a different colour (for reasons beyond our understanding). It was finally removed around 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, but Instagram user steveaustin66 managed to preserve it in all its glory:
“Everybody who had seen the sign, it led some to believe it looked like a very phallic-looking symbol and we don’t want any of our maps to be misconstrued, so we’re in the midst of replacing it,” TTC spokesman Brad Ross told the Toronto Sun.
Ross also added that, in this case, the “approval process” for signage and maps wasn’t followed, in an effort to expedite the process.
Talk about a premature finish.
