Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- There’s a push to start naming more Toronto parks after women. A report from Spacing Magazine showed that only six per cent of Toronto parks are named after women, while 21 per cent are named for men. There are currently eight parks in the works across Toronto, and advocates say that would be a good place to start to address the gap—not just to recognize women, but also the many people from diverse backgrounds who helped make Toronto what it is today.
- Some Texans are so happy with seeing Jose Bautista get socked in the face that they’ve pledged to feed Rougned Odor ribs for life. Travis Heim, owner of Heim Barbeque, has agreed to feed Odor free ribs after his soul was crushed by Bautista’s game-five home run last year. Heim did say that he’d love to have Bautista in his restaurant someday, but he encourages the Jays slugger to wear a disguise.
- Are you over six-foot-eight? Got an old Bigfoot suit lying around? Well, you might be able to help out a person with an incredibly weird desire. A Craigslist user posted an ad asking for a tall, large person to chase them through High Park while dressed as Bigfoot. The anonymous user specified that this is not a sexual thing, which somehow makes it weirder. They also made it very clear that they don’t want to know what you would look like outside of the suit, because that would kill the fantasy. If you are a massive person willing to run through High Park for half an hour, but lack the suit, the user is willing to suggest some tailors for you. The ad has since been removed, so either the person got some unwanted attention, or they’ve found someone to meet their needs. Both possibilities are sad.
