Most smiles are started by another smile


This bit of whimsy was spotted in the charming seaport town of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The viewer is one of those classic binocular sight-seeing devices manufactured by the Tower Optical Company, in business for 77 years. You know you're at a great old-time tourist place when you see one of those babies and I really love how they haven't been modernized much over the years. The smile comes courtesy of an anonymous, yet brilliant artist. Picasso himself couldn't have done a better job. Funny how one curved line of graffiti can really make your day.

The only thing I've seen that's made me as happy is someone turning a no smoking sign into a 'no pie' sign. Pretty classic.

No pie? Hilarious! Although I'm not sure I want to live in a no-pie zone.
