Gastown Intercom

5375193945_660fab7ca7_z

Gastown Intercom | Slang/Phenomenon | A desperate means of communication between an individual in a Gastown alleyway and an individual in an apartment above said alleyway. Typically, the former yells up at the latter in a hushed holler, like so:

“Yo, Chris! I need a hook-up, Chris!  Yo! Chris!”

Abuse of the Gastown Intercom is most effectively treated with a single egg, anonymously (but purposely) dropped near or directly upon the abuser.

Usage: “I was kept up until 4am last night by some down-swing motherfucker using the Gastown Intercom…”explore-the-lexicon
