How Weird Street Faire 2011 a Huge Success – A Maypole for May Day – Buff Darth Vader Best in Show

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

The 12th Annual How Weird Street Faire went off without a hitch today down in the SoMA.

(There’s little wonder about why the former Howard Street Festival is so popular, of course.)

This year’s theme was “Mythical Realms” a celebration of a pefect society where differences are appreciated as things of beauty.

Check it:

Now, doesn’t this maypole remind you of your schoolgirl days at Bryn Mawr?

And, good news! It seems white people no longer get Chinese character tattoos anymore – they’re into pink poodles and whatnot. See?

How weird!

All right, that’s it for this year:

“I’m drunk and Osama Bin Laden is dead #howweird

Lastly, leave us give thanks to all the NIMBY’s of the SoMA, for not complaining so much this go-around. Huzzah!

“If theres a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now

Its just a spring clean for the May Queen”

See you next year!

San Francisco Atheists Collecting Money for another “Darwin Scholarship”

Monday, May 5th, 2008

There they were down at the How Weird Street Faire – it was the San Francisco Atheists! They were collecting money for their Darwin Scholarship.

Perhaps you could win a scholarship too. Not sure if you could use it at a Jesuit school like USF, but it’s worth a try for all you unbelievers out there. Wouldn’t you want to be just like these attractive, local atheists during the next Evolution-Palooza on Darwin Day?


Come meet these heathens this Wednesday at Evolution: The Musical! Why not? 

God Bless.
