Historic Yelp Typo for Expensive SoMA Flophouse: “We Had Bats In Our Room” – Should Be Gnats? Cats? Rats?

Monday, August 17th, 2015

I’ll tell you, this blows me away:

“…Best Western Plus Americania recently posted rates of $460 a night.”

Isn’t that a tad pricy, you know, considering?

Anywho, Andrea M says:

We had bats in our room…

Capturefsfff

This can’t be right, right?

It’s gotta be gnats, right?

Are bats attracted to humidity? One assumes not. But are gnats attracted to humidity? One assumes so.

Otherwise, bats, rats OR cats would be somewhat disturbing.

Almost as disturbing as the idea of paying $460 to stay a night (plus hotel tax, like 15%) (plus $30, for parking!) (plus hotel tax, like 15% on the parking fee) at a Best Western motel at 7th and Market…

Friday, July 24th, 2015

The one on the left is definitely ID’ed as a cat, but I’m seeing a lot of bear or pig or bear-pig in the unlabeled and supposed “cat” on the right:

Bears have muzzles and piggies have muzzles, but cats don’t have muzzles, right?

Marina District Pet Store Update: Is This a Hated Chain Store Like Pet Food Express or a Beloved Local Store?

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

I can’t tell, and that’s sort of my point…

One wonders about all this stress and strife

(One wants [or SHOULD want to, anyway] to live the sporting life)

Leaving you with this

“It doesn’t matter whether a cat [PET FOOD STORE] is white [LOCAL] or black [A CHAIN], as long as it catches mice.”

The Owner of This Car Used to Feed Feral Cats in Golden Gate Park – Huge Bags of Food on JFK Drive

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

I don’t know if she’s still doing this.

Another woman had a car with a bumper sticker showing two hunters aiming at / shooting each other – that was her solution to hunting.

Anyway, they’d stop and then walk up to the nearest cover to dispense cat food.

The bird lovers did not / do not approve…

“Senator Yee Receives “A+” from Paw PAC for 100% Record on Animal Issues

Yee is one of four Senators to receive top score from California’s Political Action Committee for Animals

SACRAMENTO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) received an “A+” grade for his 100 percent voting record on animal issues from Paw PAC – California’s political action committee for animals.  Yee was one of only four Senators to receive an “A+” score.

The Paw PAC scored legislators on 8 bills ranging from fur labeling to animal cruelty.

“How we treat our animals is really a testament to how compassionate we are as a society,” said Yee.  “These bills not only provide additional protections for animals, but also help humane consumers who are looking to do the right thing with their pocketbook.”

Paw PAC is a nonpartisan, nonprofit political action committee dedicated to the passage of humane laws and election of humane legislators.”
