    "Division St" is a common name. TRWTF is this being on TDWTF.

    Also, does YumYum make any deviled eggs?

    The Google one looks fake. I don't understand the one about Division St. The gargoyle is climbing a rope, not a rock.

    I guess I'm neither a moron nor a nerd. What is funny or interesting about the name "Division Street"?

    It doesn't strike me as a particularly unusual name for a street. There are, for instance, two of them in downtown Buffalo.

    If we're saying that it's funny that a highway with a prime number is called "Division", that's...pretty weak.

    It's still a typo unless we are supposed to assume the rope was attached to a rock. But you can hitch a rope to many things, and there is no rock in the picture.

    I think they art eluding to the fact that 41 is a prime number and hence has no divisors except itself and 1

    Not so much of a rib tickler!

  • Cidolfas (unregistered) in reply to Filo Pastry

    The show is very clear that gargoyles can only glide, not fly. The other WTF, though, is that they are always shown climbing up cliffs and buildings by sinking their claws into them, which can break stone. They've never used ropes.

    And I also fail to see what's so strange about "Division St.".

    So TRWTF is that he has badly functioning wings? Is that it then? Just looking for the point, and it's friday. That always helps.

    I believe they could climb stonework with only their claws as well. Excellent, work, toy marketers. Off to the bar for a round of shots after a hard day's work.

    Yes. I believe it's what those in the comedy business call a joke. More quiet chuckle than belly laugh, admittedly (and possibly more FAIL Blog than TDWTF) but a joke nonetheless.

    Actually, that joke can be taken even further, since there are arguably actually four Division Streets.

    North Division Street and South Division Street are one-way streets running parallel in opposite directions. But North Division Street is discontinuous; it's already been divided into three segments due to things like a park and a hospital being built in the way.

    Well, you see, the wings are there only in case the gargoyle, which has claws that can dig into rock, happens to accidentally sever the rope it is climbing.

    QF being funnier than the original article. Yeah, feels like Friday here too.

    Does anyone else the feeling that sometimes there are verbs omitted from the articles on purpose? I can't think of any other explanation for why it happens almost every day.

    I was in Slaton just last weekend, and every time I see the Division street sign, I think of Pink Floyd.

    I'm a prepress operator and I have seen the problem like on that ad many times. It happens because a company creates their ad and sends a PDF to the newspaper, the subeditor at the newspaper is a clueless idiot and doesn't know how to use InDesign, so when they place the ad and export the PDF of the page, they ignore the "OMG LINKS ARE MISSING" warning and save it anyway. InDesign "cleverly" uses its cache of the image in place of the missing link. It's cache just happens to be low quality and have no fonts embedded so the result is a Courier font-face in the default font-size which usually means it overflows the box it's in and the text is cut off.

    TRWTF here is: the clueless subeditor, whoever proofed the page, the prepress operator for being blind and not seeing it while printing the film/plates and the printers for not seeing it while it was on the press.

    The design company are most probably innocent victims (although "design companies" tend to try and be too clever and end up creating ads with broken image paths and other WTFs but I digress ...)

    I was visiting in Fairbanks Alaska a couple of summers ago, and we needed to deliver some paperwork to a local with a small office at the intersection of 9th and Smythe. So we get there and don't see the sign she said was in the front yard. I call her on my cell phone; she's looking out her window at the intersection but doesn't see me. I'm standing on top of a huge red pickup in the middle of the intersection with a cell phone up beside my head. WTF? How could she not see me?

    Turns out 9th and Smythe intersect at two places 4 blocks apart. The local didn't know this, and I was, as you might imagine, from out of town.

    I don't know. Seemed relevant when I started typing. Go figure.
