Found art on The Danforth. Perhaps this is a modern Proverb.
When I first saw this, Ace Ventura came to mind. He’s the detective in Pet Detective. He looks into the rear view mirror (which has the warning of things closer than they appear) and says: “Assholes are closer than they appear”. This saying, sprayed on a concrete wall seemed to be a great comeback line.
Whichever way it goes, great proverb, great comeback line, it’s one that was written beautifully on The Danforth.
