#hoHOTo

The summer edition of the holiday fundraiser.

Update: Hohoto happened again. Read about version 3.

If you suspect you’ve seen a post with this title on my blog before, you’re absolutely right!

But eagle-eyed readers will spot a slight variation in the casing of the letters. This one is pronounced “ho-HOT-o.”

Get it? “Hot.” As in the awful muggy weather we’re having right now.

Yesterday was the summer followup of the charity event that raised $25k for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Join us at the #hoHOTo summer camp. Do you really think that we geeks could resist the chance to run a summer camp?

Due to the lack of lakes — I said “lakes” not cesspools — in Toronto, it was held at the multi-storied Wetbar & Suite 106 in the heart of Clubland.

As usual, the tunes were brought to you by these fellows:
