Bigfoot Love

This book is without a doubt the funniest read the Lame Owls have ever had. Sara discovered this little gem one fine summer day while Zoe was lost on the transit way. Upon Zoe's eventual arrival to the previously discussed meeting spot (Chapters) by taxi due to her inability to bus, Sara presented her with "Bigfoot: I Not Dead" and many subsequent hours were spent laughing till we cried. There is no way to fully explain the magnificence of this book other than to say that Graham Roumieu is a really funny guy.
We commend him and strongly urge everyone to pick up a copy immediately!


Life is better with Trolls.

The Underground

Awkward Author

Perusing the bookstore today and came across an interesting book called "Great Lies To Tell Small Kids" by Andy Riley. 
Andy Riley has also authored "Bunny Suicides", a favorite here at Lame Owl, it's a compilation of doodles in which bunnies use creative methods of killing themselves. 
A recommended read for anyone with a quirky and slightly dark sense of humor!
Lame Owl awards Andy Riley with our first ever "Awkward Award"!

Browsing Limit?

Nothing says uncomfortable like a browsing limit sign in the Playboy section of a used bookstore.  We found this little friend while venturing down Whyte Avenue one fine afternoon, and we found the signage quite amusing. What really gets us curious is the question of why the sign was created? Did the owners of the store at some point find a herd of questionable old men spending extended periods of time “browsing” the Playboy section of their store? Or perhaps it was made to prevent awkward situations like that from occurring in the first place? Whatever the answer is we love the sign and had quite a laugh over it!

Awkward Increases With Age...

Look out Ronald.

Take A Dip

Awkward Trend: The Jumpsuit

The Lame Owls have noticed a suspicious trend rising up and it's name is Jumpsuit. Why is this happening? We don't know, and we find it to most uncomfortable and not in a squirmygood kind of way but in a bad, bad romper kind of way. Here at Lame Owl we have decided to try and capture photos of the Jumpsuit at large, mingling with the public, so be prepared to see what this little garment looks like on anyone but a supermodel!

Not Intended For Ages 6 and Up...

Awkward Alberta

This is exactly what it looks like- A giant pyrogy on a giant fork.
Why? Good question. Probably for the same reason that Alberta is also home to a giant sausage. The fiber-glass and steel pyrogy shown here is located the village of Glendon, Alberta and is extremely awkward. But in a charming kind of way, we think.

Let The Headless Begin...

Let the headless begin....

It will continue, Headlessness is guaranteed to be a main feature on Lame Owl.

Penguin's Aren't Owls, But They're Pretty Cool Anyway.

Wandering around the City can lead to some excellent finds, like this Penguin graffiti! We found this one by chance on a Downtown Excursion and have been searching for others like it ever since! The best part may actually be the Daddy Long-Legs awkwardly lurking above the penguins.
Welcome to Lame Owl!

Sometimes the best things in life are... really awkward. Fortunately Lame Owls love awkwardness and extreme levels of discomfort, particularly in photographic form, which is why we've created this blog site. Might as well spread the awkward around if you know what I mean.
You know what I mean.
