Some Torontonians really do have a passion for Jamaican patties. Ali Pate, a 23-year-old Scarborough resident, has gone viral after sharing his graduation photos taken with a Jamaican patty in his hand.
“I was looking for a prop to use for my graduation pictures so I tweeted about it and one of my friends replied saying I should use a Warden Station patty,” he explained on Friday. Pate recently graduated from the Retail Management Program at Ryerson University in Toronto.
Just two days after getting his grad photos taken, Patel posted a few proofs from the shoot online. They quickly took on a life of their own, thanks to Facebook, Instagram and everyone in this city’s obsession with Jamaican patties.
