What we have here is a self-proclaimed cyborg looking for someone to sell “musical waterfountains” from a location that doesn’t exist.
And yet it’s totally legitimate.
Steve Mann = Self-proclaimed cyborg, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at U of T and—as that combination might imply—all-around eccentric inventor.
musical waterfountains = The hydraulophone, the Wikipedia article about which makes a good Wikigroaning companion to Sousaphone.
Dundas and Avenue = They do indeed mean Dundas and University.
And Ariel Garten, by the way, is likely the only ubiquitous face at Newmindspace events whose Wikipedia bio unironically refers to her in its first sentence as an “intellectual.”
