Mar 5th, 2016: Neighbourhood Watch

This Neighbourhood Watch must be in Beverly Hills.

Hey, wait a minute, there's no neighbourhoods in the USA.
Some foreign agents are stealing our stars, where's the NSA when we need 'em?

Oh, nevermind, it's our upstairs neighbour, Toronto.
Andrew Lamb is responsible for 'hacking' the Neighbourhood Watch signs.
"I walked by and thought those signs would be much better with a superhero up there," he said. "The first one was a splash page a common thing in comic books, a bunch of superheros popping out at you. Then came Batman and Robin, RoboCop, Beverly Hills Cop, and then it snowballed."

Each sign is unique to a neighbourhood, from Dupont Street south to Lake Ontario. Lamb prints out each image on a laser printer and then glues it to the sign. He glues the photos to the signs in the light of day, often getting feedback from neighbours as he applies them.

Lamb said only two people have complained about the vandalism. In fact, Lamb claimed people in the neighbourhoods are sending him locations of signs, requesting a superhero or sitcom star be posted. But Lamb realizes not everyone admires his work. He is vandalizing city property in violation of the law so as a precaution, he uses a pseudonym. Andrew Lamb is not his real name.
So a foreign agent operating under a nom de plume is stealing our intellectual property, and most Canadians are ok with it.
I guess they're still pissy over that 1812 dust-up.
