Can You Really Sign Binding Legal Documents with Your Handle? Yes – Meet “John The Animal Protector Mounier”Monday, January 14th, 2013
Here he is:

I’ve never seen anything like that in a signature line.
In other news, Charlie lives – he just got a life sentence on a farm someplace after his mouthpiece struck a plea bargain with Dennis Herrera and the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office.
But, come to think of it, attorney John Mounier is actually “The Animal Attacker Protector,” IRL.
This was the scene last night at the famous Micky D’s at the end of Haight Street at Stanyan near famous Hippy Hill.
I passed by two pit-bull-looking dogs outside at the rear entrance, two pit-bull-looking dogs inside the store with owners on the way to the bathroom, two pit-bull-looking dogs with owners in line to buy food,* and two pit-bull-looking dogs as I exited out the front steps.**
Now, some of them might have been less than a year old, mere pups I suppose, and some of them might have been presa canarios or whathaveyou, but goddam, I didn’t expect to encounter eight fighting dogs*** in one minute at one McDonalds.

I’m not particularly afraid of dogs at all and I’ve never been bitten, but that was my reaction.
And here’s an update – the Dollar Menu is still there but it’s not as prominent as before, as if they don’t want you to see it, it seems.
See you in about a year or so, Haight Street McDonalds.
*At this point, I was looking for an exit strategy, like if they all went Hera and Bane on me, I’d have hopped on one of the counters, that kind of thing.
** Sans food. I was going to get a large order of fries and two side salads for $4-something for a special lady friend but the line was kind of long and there was some kind of kerfuffle going on so I said the Hell with this and left for the WF right across the street.
***The most I’ve seen in one place at one time.

A 45-pound “pup,” huh?

And since we’re on the subject, uh 7×7 Magazine, and this is the kind of comment that got me banned, for life, from being able to comment at SF Appeal.com, that non-blog, never call it a blog, oh no, not that I ever did, run by “nice” non-blogger Eve Batey, but, 7×7 Magazine, you are not qualified to debunk myths.* ‘Cause myth-debunkers get held to a higher standard, right?
So stuff like this:
“Are Pit Bulls more likely to bite? No. According to the American Temperament Test Society, the three breeds most likely to bite were Dachshunds, Chihuahuas and Jack Russell Terriers, while Pitts and Rottweilers finished in the bottom half of the list.”
Well, that just doesn’t fly.** I’m not doubting the “according to” part, but you’re missing the entire point, 7×7.
Anyway, leave us depart the subject of “St. Francis” Terriers before I extend my stay in the metaphorical doghouse.
*Why not stick with San Francisco’s Best Burger and Top Fifty Bay Area Burritos and the like, you know, your core competency?
**They Bite Horses, Don’t They?
