Sauce for the Goose: Here It Is, Your Gigantic San Francisco Sheriff Mobile Command Unit – Biggest Ice Cream Truck EverThursday, April 2nd, 2015
As seen in Civic Center last week:
Now the font on the side isn’t comic sans, but it seems a little bit comical to me:
Didn’t realize we had one of these. Perhaps we received a little Homeland Security money to pay for it, IDK.
I’m sure everybody was impressed at its debutante ball / first “MCU rally” in Sacramento a couple years back.
Next up, Know Your SFPD Command Posts – it’s sauce for the gander:
San Francisco Police Mobile Command One is huge, as you can see…

…as is Mobile Command Two:
As for Mobile Command Three, well, not so much. Via Bluoz:
It should be “BIG SODA, STOP TARGETING _US_,” right?
I mean, right?
And what regular kid uses a “framing” term like “BIG SODA?” (Except, you know, kids funded with money from BIG GOVERNMENT, right?)
I mean, throw me a bone here, people!
It’s like saying, BIG SODA, EMPOWER ME. It’s weak weak weak is what I’m saying.
I’ll expect to see this edit on the road in two weeks.
Make It So.
As seen in the Bay Area:
I knew a guy who took a test from a “scientologist” back when they were at 7th and Market, you know, back in the day. It had about 150 true/false questions. After grading it, the junior scientologist wrote “NEEDS SEVERE COUNSELING” on it in red. And I thought, no, I don’t think that’s what you mean.
But maybe it was. IDK.
Here’s how things looked back in the aughts when They were working Market Street:
The Large Bikes of the Panhandle Bike Path – Wheels Fully One Yard Tall – Presenting the Dirty-SixerMonday, July 7th, 2014
See how small regular MTB wheels are in comparison?
It’s the second Dirty Sixer I’ve ever seen…
OMG, the BIGGEST 18-Wheeler Tractor Trailer Allowed in CA – On Masonic, by San Francisco Day School – CityTarget TruckMonday, December 23rd, 2013
IMO, it’s more fun to not explain things, but here we go, let’s pay off that headline:
1. God damn, this trailer is freaking huge – I’ve never seen one bigger. This aint no 20-footer and it aint no 40 footer. It’s a 53-footer. It’s Harder Better Faster Stronger. It’s as big* an 18-wheeler tractor trailer as you’re ever going to see, Gentle Reader.

2. Now here’s what pisses some people off about San Francisco Day School. These parents enter their kinder into the San Francisco SFUSD school busing program lottery. And, because they don’t already have an older kid already in a good public school AND because they don’t live a “low test score area” (like in parts of The Mission or near The Projects), they lose out in the lottery. So then they say, all right, well, we’ve lost the lottery, but we can simply pony up $27k(!) to put our four-year-old into a private school. But then they have to qualify by being interviewed. And then, sometimes, they get rejected. And then they get seriously pissed off. Anywho, Masonic Avenue / Boulevard is reason #1 why SFDS will never be a high status school (in comparison with the tonier outfits up in
Specific Whites Pacific Heights.) Masonic is how the Jennie Zhus of this world get back and forth betwixt San Francisco Proper and the westside, The Avenues, the West Bay neighborhoods like The Richmond and The Sunset. Masonic, for better or worse, is a freeway substitute and it will always be that way and, for the worse, it’s the front door of SFDS. These days there’s a plan afoot to put in trees and a median that will slow down all the cars and the occasional MUNI bus, but that won’t really change things for SFDS. All the parents and nannies will still double park on neighboring streets, oh well. Look at the photo and there it is, the SFDS.
3. Oh man, the millionaire property owners of the lily-white “NOPNA” Northeast of Panhandle Homeowners Association DID NOT want to see those, those people shopping at a retail store up at Geary and Masonic again, oh no, but that’s what’s happening despite their best efforts. I myself didn’t object to the CityTarget, you know, but even I’m a little surprised to see such a big rig heading up Mervyn’s Heights with the Target targets on the side.
Of course, all of the above was implied by the simple photo and short headline…
*Unless you move to Texas, and even then…
**Who’s getting interviewed, really, the parents or the kid? IDK. I’ll tell you, I bet if Will Smith tried to get his kid into this joint, there’d be no problem, no problem at all. But if you don’t impress SFDS enough to get a green light, you’re money’s no good there.
