The Syrup Trap

In 2013 I launched the Syrup Trap, which has published hundreds of pieces of news satire and short fiction, cartoons, video sketches, a podcast, a print edition in collaboration with Geist, and a Christmas album where the only lyrics are the words "o Christmas tree" over and over again. More than 1 out of every 16 Canadians has visited the Syrup Trap's website!
