“There are some questions that can’t be answered by Google”;This Church’s Sign Brought To You By Microsoft Bing
I have seen this church mentioned/pictured before in the media and on the interiorwebs but the other night I was passing by and saw this sign as I stopped at the stop sign across the street (like the good law-abiding citizen I am) on my way home from the Tigits Launch Party. According to the Anglican Church of St Timothy at 100 Old Orchard Grove in Toronto “There are some questions that can’t be answered by Google.” I looked around to see if I could find a Bing logo or a Microsoft logo anywhere on the sign or a Bing logo but found nothing. I was really expecting to see something, somewhere…I think the marketing department at St. Timothy’s might need a hand with this as they could probably be making some serious coin if they kept that up for a while and just slapped a Bing logo on there. You might be thinking that I completely missed the point of the sign and they were trying to reference the Church or God or Christianity (or all of the above) having the answers and not that we should switch search engines. However, being a Jewish computer geek this is immediately what sprang to mind so I thought I’d share it with you. I hope no one finds that offensive. However, if you do I suggest you step back and re-examine why you are offended…clearly this is a snarky comment being made by the church and it is meant to draw attention to it. Therefore me posting about it means the sign did its job. If even one other person (preferably an Anglican Christian I’d guess) sees this sign and learns about the existence of the church and decides “Hey, if they’re gonna be trying so hard to be hip and cool with the kids today mentioning the interwebs on their lawn sign maybe I should check them out” then that sign has done its job.
I look forward to seeing more funny sign posts from you Anglican Church of St Timothy. When I went to you guys on Google Maps Street View – see they DO have the answers! – all I got was times for Easter services and a different sign that was missing the rainbow flag. I hereby grant you guys the title of “Coolest Church Lawn Sign In Toronto” and “Coolest Church Lawn Sign In The Greater Toronto Area”. Although I don’t spend very much time reading church lawn signs so you may want to take that title with a grain of salt; nay, an entire salt shaker.
