Le roi du smoked meat

As if a pizza box written in Franglais wasn't good enough, this one also has Chinese take-out typography ("Ouvert 24 heures"). The deli/pizzeria is a few blocks from the Jean-Talon subway stop in Montreal, and I stumbled on it this past weekend while trying to find the public market nearby (which is amazing, but more on that later). You can't see them in the photo, but the window display also features cans of Cott's Black Cherry Cola -- a drink associated with Montreal's most famous source of smoked meat, Schwartz's. It's nice to see an almost-extinct soft drink hang on because of a parasitic relationship with an even less healthy foodstuff. Maybe there's hope for Moxie.
