Gino’s Snot

In a minor renovation probably not related to the Toronto Community Foundation, someone has added a new station name along the top of one of Ossington Station’s track-level signs: Not Gnosis. So, Ossington does not have “a special knowledge of spiritual mysteries” (according to the OED‘s definition), which should not really surprise anyone who’s ever been to it.
Half-inspired, half-lame, the anonymous anagrammatist’s work is nonetheless the closest any station’s seen to a physical manifestation of RobotJohnny’s anagram TTC map from almost two years ago. Here’s hoping the TTC is considering station name changes along with their station modernizations. North York Centre has been North York Centre for far too long; the time for Her Knotty Corner has come.
