Frank Gehry Crepes in front of the AGO

This sign was posted at a restaurant across from the Art Gallery of Ontario on Dundas Street. Can someone explain to me why this makes sense?

    Heh. For some reason I read that as “creeps”.

    Of course they’re Frank Gehry Crepes. Look at how they twist and fold over on themselves. And they’re clad in titanium! No, wait, that’s maple syrup.

    But did you see what else was on the menu?

    . The Corbusier Pancakes: The maple syrup is on the inside
    . The Philip Johnson Flapjacks: Just a tall simple stack. The waitress will take them away if you try to put syrup on them
    . The I.M. Pei Pancakes: The plate starts with a large, light pancake , and each successive disc is smaller and smaller. Theyre so airy, they’re almost translucent
    . The Diller & Scofidio Crepes: They cantilever over the edge of the plate
    . The Tadao Ando Pancakes: So minimal that the waitress brings you three small bowls, one each of flour, eggs and baking powder
    . The Zaha Hadid Johnnycake: Not sure how good they are, but they’ll get reviewed everywhere
    And don’t forget the Donald Trump Grits: They’re all puffed up, with a swirl of syrup that starts at the back and swoops down over the folds in front
