I dare you, Gentle Reader, to purchase this SAN FRAN shirt and walk about town.

READER NOTES:

“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”

There is *nothing* ironic about my Frisco usage. Nothing.

Frisco is okay. It is “San Fran” that is to be hated.

    While we’re at it, can we ban “Cali” as well?

  2. sfcitizen says:

    Yes, that’s mentioned in the same breath as San Fran sometimes… Sure – it’s banned.

    How can we reach the Target brain trust to protest this egregious offense?
