IDK, man, I’d prolly put the period inside of the quote mark, you know, “thusly,” as opposed to “thusly”, but that’s just how I (and about half a billion American English talkers) roll.

Canada Reclaims Our Hideous Vaillancourt Fountain on Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day – “Quebec libre!” on the EmbarcaderoMonday, June 27th, 2016
Here you go, this was the scene at Justin Herman Plaza last week:
And here’s the explanation, but I’ve flipped the image so that the English part comes first, ’cause ‘Mericah:
(I’ve already said my piece on this art piece right here. We should get rid of it.)
But hey, the home-made banner added to it last week is well made. It’s great:
All the deets:
Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (French: Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste), officially known in Quebec as La fête nationale, (English: National Holiday) is a holiday celebrated annually on June 24, the feast day of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. In Quebec, it is a public holiday with festivities occurring on June 23 and 24 which are publicly financed and organized by a Comité organisateur de la fête nationale (Organizing Committee of the National Holiday). June 24 is also celebrated as a festival of French Canadianculture in other Canadian provinces and the United States.

Well, HERE’S a Nice Ad Served Up by SFGate – Ooh, an AVN & XBIZ Award Winner – We’re in a New Century Now!Wednesday, March 16th, 2016
This is how the San Francisco Chronicle makes its money these days:
Or maybe the the appearance of this ad says more about me/my PC than it says about the Chron,* but it certainly says something about the Chron…
*But IDTS. Heretofore, I’ve only see these local strip club ads on the ‘Xam, IIRC.
Beast From Sky: The Message Our Super Bowl 50 “Host Committee” Has for Us is “BUD LIGHT … FOR AMERICA!”Saturday, February 6th, 2016
This is as close as I’ll get to Super Bowl L:
What could be more inappropriate?
At least I understood that one. This one was illegible to all concerned. Using my camera I could figure it out mostly, but I read it (from the wrong side) as JOIN US AT UNION 20 or JOIN US AT UNION 50, which I imagined to be a new (or pop-up) eatery or bar. I just couldn’t make out the squiggly on the big “Q,” oh well:
This is the best I can do here. (Is this effective advertising?)
Oh, here we go – some of these ads are kind of surreal, huh?
Wondering if Bud Light ads in Canada say, “BUD LIGHT … FOR CANADA!”
From the Middle of Town, It’s Real Hard to Tell San Francisco is Hosting SB50 Super Week This Year – This Aerial Ad Is ItFriday, February 5th, 2016
The only thing I know about this company is quite negative, oh well.
Anyway, I’ve never seen this banner and its concomitant airplane above my noggin, so I must conclude that this flying ad is Super Bowl-related
And now that the football people have taken away the giant metal “50” ad from Alamo Square, there’s really no way to tell we’re just two days away from (almost) hosting Super Bowl L / Super Bowl 50.
OK, play ball!

Studies in Advertising: If an Ad is Effective, Then 100 Identical Copies Placed Right After It Will Be 100 Times More EffectiveThursday, June 18th, 2015
Oh, if only there were more light poles in the Parkside Fogbelt to hang ads from:
