Proud nerd tattoo of the day: "cryptozoology"

We don't know who the dude with the excellent cryptotat is, but Mr. Stevens explains,

Granulac and I were in Canadia for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend and I caught this guy's tattoos as he was walking past our booth- didn't manage to get his name, but it was amazing to meet someone MORE into Coast to Coast AM, cryptozoology and the like than I am. My camera lost some screws and shattered in my pocket, but my Canadian-stroke-inducing iPhone did a pretty good job. Canadians are really, really, really jonesing for iPhones.

In other news, apparently it is illegal to levitate above a motorcycle within city limits.

Update: Loren Coleman gives the cryptotat two prehensile thumbs up! Link.

John Maynard says,

I happen to know the identity of the fella with the cryptozoology tattoo. His name is Spencer Butts. He used to front a band here in Toronto called The Secret Handsnakes. He's also been an MC for the Wavelength Music Series. Here is his myspace.
