Remembering the Good Old Days When It was Legal for Tourists to Feed the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Back in the day down there betwixt San Francisco’s Financial District and the Golden Gateway Apartments, tourists would come along and just hold their hands out, with astonishing results.

Ah mem’ries;

First it was all like this (Yes, this is the view you’ll get of the 415′s famous wild parrots from our Filbert Steps.)

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

But now it’s all like this. (Gee, should I get a Chinese character inked on my Europid skin and be a laughingstock for the rest of my life or should I get something cool like this instead? Mmmm, decisions, decisions…)

Wow! That’s a good one, Deanna Wardin of Tattoo Boogaloo.

That’s the best tattoo I’ve seen in the 415.

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill were made famous a few years back by the movie with the same name. Get the new Special Two-Disc Collector’s Edition today, why don’t you?

Proof That the “Mid-Market Renaissance” is Finally Complete: “Business Meeting Outside of Twitter”

The dude on the left is Ghiberti and I’m pretty sure that that’s Donatello in the blue cap.

You know, when I see all the “improvements” what have come to the Mid-Market since Willie Brown stooge Ed Lee worked to undo the tax signed into law by Willie Brown stooge Gavin Newsom in 2004,* I think, wow, how much better would things be in the Mid-Market if Mark Pincus had donated $100,000 to Mayor Ed Lee (you know, instead of just $50,000) so that the City and County of San Francisco would have then “invested” $3.5 million into Zynga (you know, instead of just $1.75 million).

In closing, please remember that all social problems can only be solved through investments in real estate.

*Yep.  Gavin Newsom the Tax Raiser, the Job Killer. It was a different era.
