The Bude’ Abides – Better Know Your Giant Buddha of Golden Gate Park – But Why Don’t We Send It Back to Japan?

Here’s your history of this 3000-pound statue in our pricy ($8 a person!) Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park:

Oh, here we go, just found this in the SFChron, but I don’t know what “Tajima province Honsha, Japan” means. (Perhaps they meant to say Tajima Province in Honshu, Japan? That would be like saying Atlanta, GA in the American South, I guess.)

Hey, maybe we should make a replica of this thing and send the original back to Japan, how about that?

Frisco Traffic – Big Wheel Up Front, Tiny Wheel Out Back – Are Pennyfarthings Legal on the Streets of San Francisco?

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

IDK. These rides certainly were not legal on CA streets a while back, but I’d have to look up what the current law says, something about being able to skid a wheel on dry pavement.

Anyway, here you go, in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

Sauce for the Goose: Here It Is, Your Gigantic San Francisco Sheriff Mobile Command Unit – Biggest Ice Cream Truck Ever

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

As seen in Civic Center last week:

It’s a giant ice cream truck, with less horsepower than some Honda Accords.

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…

Rewriting a MUNI Bus Ad: Why “BIG SODA, STOP TARGETING ME” Sounds Weak

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

It should be “BIG SODA, STOP TARGETING _US_,” right?

7J7C3396 copy

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.
