Garish, $140K, BMW i8 SAFETYCAR Towed by DPT, for Safety, One Supposes – The Limits of Supercar OwnershipWednesday, August 12th, 2015
You’d think a SAFETYCAR such as this one would spend its time on a racetrack up north, but no, it mingles with regular cars on the streets of San Francisco, like this:
Now here’s the update, from Jake Saltzman:
IDK, did SAFETYCAR block traffic in a yellow zone during towaway rush hour and then did DPT have it towed as a hazard to navigation? Well, something like that.
(Someday, _I’ll_ own and operate a SAFETYCAR!)

It Has Come To Pass: “MEWNI” T-Shirts! – Imagining America’s Slowest Big-City Transit System as CatbusWednesday, August 5th, 2015
This was the promise, seven long years ago:
Oh what a day! What a lovely day:
This is, by far, the best use of MUNI’s Snake Logo ever.
Order now, and you’ll be looking Chic in no time.
What would it be like if buses in San Francisco were Catbuses…. They’d be called “MEWNI’s”!
This shirt design is inspired by the CATBUS from Hayao Miyazaki’s film “My Neighbor Totoro” and San Francisco bus “MUNI”.
Women size T-Shirts are printed on Bella brand shirts. Please be advised that it is recommended that you select a size larger than you’re regular size to ensure a more comfortable fit.”
*Saying, “Enjoy the candy” while handing over the gun? Good one, MUNI!
Boy, Our SF “City Family” is Really Counting on Stealing the Oakland Warriors from Oakland – “LET’S GROW WARRIORS?”Monday, August 3rd, 2015
Is there anything wrong with leaving the Golden State Warriors in Oakland?
Anyway, here’s the scene in Golden Gate Park – I can’t imagine this arboreal/sports clothing line program “makes money” for our City Family, but rich like having fun too, and this is one way for them to do it:
What’s next, “Let’s Grow Niners?”
Is a genuine orange shirt from the California Department of Corrections a prestige item on the Streets of San Francisco?
Yes it is:
[UPDATE: Herb Caen eventually recanted re: the Frisco Issue – see Comments. Or here’s the short version:“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”]
“Person that comes to your house to remove your used AA batteries because you’re too lazy to ‘dispose of them properly.'”
Here you go – they’ll come right to your place for pickup if you put your used batteries in a baggie:
“Curbside Battery Recycling Service – Most residents may place their batteries in a sealed plastic bag taped to the top of their black bin for curbside collection.”
This baggie system is news to me, as I’m accustomed to the Big Orange Bucket:
“Residents of multi-unit homes (4 units or more) should place batteries in their Orange Battery Bucket. If your building does not have one, ask your building manager to order one at (415) 330-1300. For more information on battery recycling, please visit: SFEnvironment.org/ecofinder
So who says our local garbage monopoly is all bad?
*As opposed to the actual Elon Musk. I’ll tell you, BEM is much cheaper for us than the real deal:
From Mexico With Love: “Coca Cola Fiesta Variety” – Cane Sugar in Stoplight Colors – Red-Amber-Green – Coke-Fanta-Sprite – 88 Cents Per at CostcoThursday, May 14th, 2015
But now there’s this, your Coca Cola Fiesta Variety Pack, featuring cane sugar Sprite and cane sugar Orange Fanta:
The expected rejoinder from Pepsi? Sugar cane 7-Up and sugar cane Orange Crush, of course.
We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop
It’s Orange Bird Season in California! Our Best-Looking Native Bird Has Got To Be … The Hooded OrioleWednesday, April 22nd, 2015
Your pet-store Cherry-Headed Conures certainly are handsome animules (see below), but our Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill don’t really belong in Frisco, not really.
So the Hooded Oriole takes the crown
Here’s one [oh, if you want to add your comment to all the others, use this link] at Golden Gate Park’s Stow Lake from, IDK, a decade ago? This male has a blush of orange, as is typical for this time of year – they generally have more of a pure yellow color at other times:
Now here are your beauty champs from the 415’s Import Division:
A friendly pair in the Presidio.
They love to fly…
and eat flowers.
Look to the skies…
