Hot Sauce Olympics: Tabasco Gold, Tapatio Silver, Crystal Bronze and Cholula is a Fourther

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Find out all you need to know about mainstream hot sauces here.

Turns out that four of the 14 judges hail from Estado Libre y Soberano de Tabasco, so that explains the surprise victory.

Cholula’s the fourther, so it gets an AutoPen-signed certificate instead of a medal.

OMG, NBCBayArea’s New “Weathergirl” Christina Loren Wears a Hat! Plus Rich Lieberman is NOT Infatuated, No Way

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I’ll tell you, my rabbit ears (avec free govmint digital cable converter box) couldn’t even dream of picking up the KNTV from all the way down in San Bruno or wherever, so I never see the Channel 3.

But lots of you do, apparently, based upon all the recent fuss about newly-installed meteorologist Christina Loren.

Per Jane B:

“I enjoy the NBC news in the morning, but as soon as that bulging self-promoting common tart of a meteorologist appears with her forced Good Morning, I just can’t wait to change channels for the duration. I would have thought NBC would have been more concerned with professionalism in their meteorologists than with this very poor image that it presents daily. And then to add insult to injury, she turns up this a.m. with a hat, supposedly, I suppose, to be in the spirit of the royal wedding – what an insult!”

Exhibit A, the “insulting” hat in question:

Now, with an opposing viewpoint, here’s the wedding hat minority report from Christina’s FaceBook fans:

O.K. then.

Comes now Rich Lieberman, who’s not infatuated with “The Hottest Weather Woman On The Planet,” not in the least, why would you even think that, to post an interview with CL, who ably strives to stay AOM, Always On Message, about being AAMF, All About My Forecast. See?

All right, it’s time to sign off with all the banal slogans used by KNTV over the recent decades:

Giveaway at Zog’s Dogs a Huge Success Down in the Financh

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

I’ll tell you, last year, Zog’s Dogs had a giveaway – it wasn’t no thang. But this year’s Free Dog Day was publicized on SFist and SFGate, San Francisco’s online newspaper, so the queue was as high as an elephant’s eye.

See? This was the scene in the morning, with the line stretching beyond view before the lunch hour even began.

Now, EaterSF has the deets on this afternoon’s mayhem. It was dog eat dog out there, apparently.

Bon Courage, Zog’s Dogs!

Free Hot Dog Day at Zog’s Dogs on Post Street a Huge Success

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

So there I was on Market Street yesterday pulling my old scam – I go up to the Zog’s Dogs at One Post Street near Montgomery and I says:

‘We’re gonna order then Yelp about it – what discount can you give us?’

With a quickness I had a free dog in my paw. See?

Of course, it was broken in the middle, just like our Bay Bridge, but quite tasty nevertheless. The regular price might seem a littley pricy if you’re used to Costco’s inflation-fighting $1.50 Hot Dog and a Coke Deal. I prefer the taste of Zog’s, I’d have to say.   

Read about owner Jessie Herzog’s history of “love for sausages wrapped in buns” in this Proclamation from the Wizard:

Do Motorcycles and Flip Flop Sandals Make a Good Combination?

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Seen on the streets of San Francisco – a young couple on a straight-out-of-Bolongna Ducati motorcycle. Well, that’s O.K., but check out the passenger’s choice of fashionable footwear. Her bare foot seems uncomfortably close to what could be a hot exhaust pipe.

Fashion has its place on motorbikes of course, but this might be going too far.
