Bundle up – El Nino is upon us…
I’ve never seen this before – look, both feet are off the ground at the same time and he’s not in a crosswalk
Good for him!
Hey look, it’s Erick “Rockclub” Brown and his goat named Deer, straight outta the Florida Panhandle.
All the deets:
And you know People Magazine? Well they have a Pets Section now. It’s called “PeoplePets.” Srsly:
All right, let’s bid adieu, as Erick and Deer strut through a four-on-four pickup blacktop game in our Panhandle:
Take a look at the ballers – click to expand if necessary. They all have the same HEY-BRO-GET-OFF-THE-COURT-WHOA-A-GOAT EXPRESSION, IMO.
Bon courage, Erick
Bon courage, Deer
READER NOTES: Are you aware of the Growing Urban Goat Movement? Check it:
Sarah Hawkins breeds and sells a specific variety of miniature goats. “The Nigerian Dwarf can be for pets and for milk,” says Hawkins, “and for eating weeds – they’ll eat yellow star thistle.” Hawkins owns Castle Rock Farm in Vacaville. Most of her customers live in San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland where it’s legal to keep goats in backyards.
And hey, you know who loves urban goats? SFGov, that’s who. Read up our even-toed ungulate laws here:
“Keeping two or less female goats on private property is legally allowed in San Francisco for the exclusive use of the owner’s family. Keeping more than two female goats or any number of male goats and other hoofed animals (e.g. Horse, mare, gelding, mule, burro, sheep, cow, etc) requires appropriate approval and stable permit according to the San Francisco Health Code. Goats can also be temporarily allowed on public projects for weed clearing and fire hazard abatement activities by special permit with the agency landowner.”
Let’s take a look:
“‘Critical Mass has definitely brought attention to bicycle issues, and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without them,’ said Leah Shahun, executive director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.”
And now, let’s fast forward to today to get this:
SF Bicycle Coalition
@sfbike @HansOngchua We heard and have no affiliation, of course. Terrible news, though we appreciate you looping us.
Now srsly, I don’t think people were accusing the SFBC of being “affiliated” with Critical Mass, I think they were looking for the SFBC to disavow the actions of the U-lock attacker.
So to have a blanket response like “no affiliation, of course” [you ignorant fool], well that doesn’t really cut the mustard now, do it.
‘Cause this is coming from a taxpayer-subsidized org, right? A government-funded organization that takes hundreds of thousands of dollars from us for the purpose of bicycle-related safety, and all they can come up with is:
Comes now Chris Carlsson to disavow, to fill the void.
What are we spending all our money on, if the SFBC washes its hands of the matter and says, NO COMMENT, like literally to this, to 165k Views and counting?
Is somebody paying him to do this (the way this guy was)?
I don’t get it:
Or is he just another tourist in C-Town, all by himself, checking the scene, striking a pose, and buying knickknacks?
