This happened during the Toronto G20 so-called “riots” this past weekend. Pretty sure it’s at Yonge & College, right in the centre of downtown Toronto. The only way this could be better is if the thief said “Sorry” after being wrestled to the curb.
Although, frankly, given the hellswamp that is Bell Canada customer service (I was on the phone with them for FIVE HOURS last week), I kind of wish it was a better company who was getting their little products returned by gentle Toronto vigilante wrestlers.
Thanks to Rebecca for Facebooking this.

Man, when this first came out a few years ago, my cousins and I sang it endlessly for weeks.
The star of Soy has sent him here; the great hero Kikko-Man!
Soy sauce makes the difference; pour it, taste it, be amazed!
Restaurants are no match to him; take his blow, the Kikko-punch!
“Eat sunny-side-up eggs with soysauce!”
Show me! Show you! Kikkoman, Kikkoman
(This is a clever pun, because “shoyu” actually means “soy sauce”)
Show me! Show you! Kikkoman!
The Star of Soy has sent him here; the cool guy called Kikko-Man!
Try soy sauce and be healthy! “Did you know that it kills germs?”
Sauce? or Ketchup? or Mayonnaise? Vanish them with Kikko-Beam!
“I said eat eggs with soysauce, idiot!”
(and then he kills the cat and gets the girl, wtf?!)
Show me! Show you! Kikkoman, Kikkoman!
Show me! Show you! Kikkoman! Alright!
So good. Thanks to reader Vickie for the tip!

Here’s a great 10 minute presentation about motivation and incentive. Turns out that for higher-level cognitive work, financial rewards are actually a disincentive to do good work; Pink discusses other incentives that work better. Great topic + engaging artwork = solid video.
Thanks to Reub for the tip.

Last night I watched this excellent, fan-made, “Scary Mary Poppins” trailer:
And then, with that in mind, watched the original trailer. Which now seems totally terrifying:

Here’s a very excited shetland sheepdog totally cracking up a baby. Best moment comes around 1:37 when the kid falls over; watch the dog. So cute.

Listen, I’ll play dodgeball until my fingers bleed, but just try convincing me to do cardio. Just try. I feel a profound kinship with this animal.
