Look What CalTrans is Doing with Our Sad-Sack Bay Bridge: First, “Mike Sucks Big Titties,” Now, “Chocolate Starfish”Monday, June 9th, 2014
Here’s some graffiti placed on the Bay Bridge by people who didn’t work hard enough to ensure that it was built correctly for a good price.
See it? It’s says, “Mike Sucks Big Titties…” Hilarious:
See? It says “Chocolate Starfish.”
Even more hilarious.
In other news, California High Speed Rail will never be “high speed” – it will be medium speed at best.
So just as Herb Caen (1916-1997) got a party for Herb Caen Way in 1996, Willie Brown (1934- 20__) is getting a party for the Willie L. Brown Junior span of the Bay Bridge in 2014.
What are the odds, which type of attack will come first?
Spray Paint: 1 to 1 favorite
Willie Brown is almost universally despised. The naming of this bridge was never put to a vote because Willie Brown would never win it. Ergo, the masses will speak with spray paint, most likely.
Ranged Weapon: 3 to 1
A drive-by shooting with a paintball gun certainly is a possibility. Shooting at a sign with a handgun or rifle, well that’s getting cray-cray.
Close Quarters Combat Weapon: 5 to 1
Shotgun blast, also cray cray.
Chemical attack: 10 to 1
I don’t know how this would work. Perhaps using paint thinner or acid.
Other: 12 to 1
Who knows, medieval mace hurled and embedded, baseball bat, bowling ball, truckasuarus? The mind boggles.
So, do I think it’s appropriate to troll the voting (and non-voting) public into action with this misguided sign deal? Yes.
So, do I think that CalTrans or whomever should have a GoPro or two in the areas of these signs? Yes.
And who will be the happiest when the attacks make the news?
One Willie Brown, srsly. He’ll love the attention
At Long Last, a Map That Clearly Shows That Part of San Francisco is in the East Bay on Alameda IslandThursday, January 30th, 2014
O you can say that this map is wrong, but you can’t say that you don’t get the point, which is that that left piece of Alameda you can see on the wrong side of the line is part of the City and County of San Francisco:

The Most Beautiful Project Ever Created by CalTrans: Melty Orange and Blue Cupcakes – They’re Mesmerizing!Wednesday, December 11th, 2013
This one’s an oldie but a goodie.
You see, Governor Arnold was late for the grand “West Approach” party for the Bay Bridge and it was a sunny day, so:

And then Arnold came in rolling on 22’s*, wearing cowboy boots, and then he cut the chain to open the freeway segment using an oxy-acetylene welding torch.
*Black SUV, 22-inch wheels, ultra-low profile tires.
Man I’m rollin’ through the city, old school on them big boys
12 inch woofers in the trunk making big noise
Got the big toys (toys), dont make me have to flash
Let a hundred rounds go, you do a hundred yard dash
Here’s What Our Massive “Left Coast Lifter” Barge Crane is Doing These Days: Nothing – Soon, Off to NYC?Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
“The massive crane is expected to be used during construction of the New Tappan Zee Bridge, a replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson River in New York State by Tappan Zee Constructors, a consortium of companies that includes American Bridge Company.”
