Yeah, I know my first thought was that this was some kind of fart-referencing joke too but it turns out the story is true. Vancouver, that one city in Canada that had an olympics a while ago, is banning doorknobs on new buildings.
No this isn’t a turn to the dark side, and they’re being led by some evil scientist with a wacky plan to enslave the tri-province area. The new legislation actually comes out of consideration for those people who struggle to function a doorknob. You know, the elderly, the arthritic, the disabled, and toddlers.
I place of doorknobs new buildings will need lever handles or crash bars to open doors. Now there’s a solution to a problem that I never considered. Those are the best kind.
