Does somebody smell irony (or is that Astroglide)?

My girlfriend and I recently took a trip to Montreal to get away from our regular routine and to do some shopping.  If you’ve never been, the first thing you’ll notice, depending on where you go, is the unusually large number of sex stores and strip clubs.  After a while you become desensitized to it, but this was just too ironic not to take a picture of:

That’s right, you’re seeing that right.  That’s a strip club above a maternity store. 

Now that’s how I like my irony served.

But here’s the second level of the irony:  this, as well as 90% of the other strip clubs and sex stores in Montreal are on a street named after a saint (Rue Ste. Catherine)!

You gotta love the French.

    SuperSexe has been located there for ages, in fact their address is funny too: “696” Ste-Catherine west, I am not making this up. The maternity store deliberately chose this location not because of the upstairs neighbour but because it is one of the busiest shopping sidewalks of the city.

    Wow. That makes it even more priceless. I know that where I took this picture was right across from a busy mall, but I had no idea that the maternity store deliberately chose that location.

    I love the French!
