the funniest FSA in Canada

I'm still obsessed with LOLcats. I fight the urge to use kitty pigdin in every e-mail I send. In conversation, I find myself using "LOL" in situations where I want to convey something funny. It's completely out of hand.

My embrace of anarchy is limited to the LOLcat grammatical kind. In most other aspects of life, I am a rule follower -- for instance, postal codes. Most of my American friends had never heard of the + 4 before I came along -- and I'm Canadian. As for my Canadian friends, I drive some of them crazy with my insistence upon the proper usage of the Canadian postal code. Did you know that hyphenating a postal code can interfere with scanning equipment, and possibly delay the delivery of mail? It's true. Punctuation should be avoided. Fixed-width fonts should be used. And never use the # sign. NEVER!





This brings me to the FSA (forward sortation area) of the Canadian postal code. I want to live here, because it just might be the funniest area of Canada:



Of course, the FSA for that area of Ontario is L0L (L zero L), not LOL. But... it's pretty close, eh?

LOL
