Puppycide in Chinatown: Crusading Reporter from Minneapolis CBS-Affiliate Confuses “Duck” with “Dog” – Hilarity Ensues

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Sometimes you hear what you want to hear, what you’re expecting to hear. And then, next thing you know, the New York State Ag. Dept. is raiding a market in Manhattan looking for puppy meat.

Oops.

Let’s let our friends in Taiwan, NMA-TV, take over:

“Dog meat sold in a Chinatown meat market? It looked like the scoop of the century to James Schugel, a reporter for Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO.

Schugel reported that a Chinatown shop had sold dog meat, but it’s actually just a misunderstanding. See, Schugel was investigating a puppy mill operation in Minnesota that apparently sent their dogs to 336 East Broadway in New York City. When he found the address was a Chinese-run meat market, he instantly leapt to the suspicion that the dogs were ending up in the cooking pot.

Schugel called up the staff to confirm his suspicions. But somewhere in the conversation, the words “dog” and “duck” got confused, and the staff confirmed that they do in fact sell meat from all kinds of animals to be eaten. This was enough for Schugel to run off with his report. Husky hash! Schnauzer stew! Keeshond kebabs!

Luckily, it quickly became clear that Schugel was barking up the wrong tree. The misunderstanding was cleared up, and WCCO quietly scrubbed the story from their website. The New York Post correctly quoted the employee of Dak Cheong Meat Market as saying “How could we sell dog meat? This isn’t China. This isn’t Korea!”

Indeed.

Why The Hell is “Commercial-Free” KQED-FM Running Commercials for “The Sexiest Night in Television?”

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

I don’t know, KQED-FM. You can’t be talking about how you have a “commercial-free” radio broadcast if you’re simultaneously running ads promoting “the Sexiest Night* in Television,” right?

My car’s tape deck, from back when they made tape decks:

I cry foul.

J’accuse! J’accuse! 

*I missed the entire ad yesterday – I thought at first they might have been promoting Fox-TV, but now I think they were beating the drums for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Implant Fashion Show on CBS.

The Streets of San Francisco: SFMTA Rips Off Famous MUNI Critic Greg Dewar and His N Judah Chronicles

Friday, July 1st, 2011

This bus ad doesn’t say The Streets of San Francisco, oh no, it says The Treats of San Francisco.

See? (The fine print in the ad says that MUNI has permission from CBS to run to use the SoSF logo, so everything’s nice and legal.)

Click to expand.

Isn’t this ad kind of a rip-off of Greg Dewar’s N Judah Chronicles?

Signs point to yes.

Speaking of whom, here’s MUNI’s Death Spiral from Greg Dewar and Joe Eskenazi. (Boy, the head of MUNI at the time just flipped out, I mean, really flipped out over this bit in the SF Weekly from last year. He hosted a big meeting in response to this one article. It was epic, I’ve been told.)

Anyway, do you know what that “treat” is, the one referenced in the MUNI ad?

It’s the price increase what starts today.

Hurray!

OK, I’ll Bite: Why _Do_ Mormons Build Temples? And Why is There a MORMON.ORG/Oakland But No /SF?

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

So this is just all a tease, turns out. But you try if you want, type in mormon.org/oakland.

I see a bunch of crap but I don’t see the answer to the question that the Morms themselves raised on their very own billboard. (Speaking of which, nice 48-foot board you got there, CBS. Maybe when there’s another Prop 8 you can make even more money, huh?)

Check it, and don’t miss Christina Loren in there, lower right – she’s the Angelyne of the Bay Area don’t you know. She, like Jebus, is everywhere.

But what about the 415? I mean, are there billboards in Oaktown touting mormon.org/sf, you know, equal time and whatnot?

Sadly no:

Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, well what about something else, like:

mormon.org/sanfrancisco

mormon.org/sodom

mormon.org/gomorrah

I’m fresh out of ideas.

Well, I feel dissed, LDS.

I feel dissed.

Family Portrait: Old Bridge, Old Bridge, New Bridge – America Still Laughing at Us – “Mike (Still) Sucks Big Titties”

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Let’s see here, can you spot the PG&E Tower of our Golden Gate Bridge in the lower left? Good, now check out vertical elements of our old and new San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridges.

Not much has changed with the poorly-managed 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake-related fix-up job that’s due to finish up sometime this decade, so there’s no reason to think that America isn’t still laughing at us.

Of course you should try to not to stare at the new ornamental tower when you are cruising by on the temporary S-curve. Safety First, right? Anyway, it’s a little higher now. See?

And, of course, Mike still sucks big titties.

That’s your Bay Bridge update for 2011.

I’ll tell you this about Frank Chu – he’s always on, always working.

That’s why he was late to his own birthday party at the Palace Hotel last year, he was on a gig that had suddenly come up right across the street.

Now, when I say “Star-Crossed San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge,” I’m referring to stuff in this 60 Minutes report* from earlier this year

Anyway, enjoy.

*Heh, 60 Minutes finally got around to fixing one of their two errors. Good for them.
