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?

It was just as you would have imagined it:

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!

Animated Al Gore Sex-Crazed Poodle Video: Another Winner from Taiwan’s NMA

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

I don’t know, when you’re paying people $540 for massages, misunderstandings can happen. That’s about the most charitable way of looking at things vis-a-vis Al Gore in this whole massage incident.

Anyway, comes now NMA, the people who make animated videos to explain the news to people in Taiwan. This one is a doozy.

In this scene, Al G. explains the ground rules:

Uh oh, he’s getting p’oed:

Explaining the poodle reference:

Not sure what W and Pink are doing in there, but oh well:

Enjoy.

Former US vice president and climate change warrior Al Gore is in hot water after news emerged this week of a 2006 close encounter with a hotel masseuse in Oregon. In a statement made to Portland police reported in the press, the 54-year-old masseuse recounted how she repeatedly had to fight off groping Gore as he made several attempts to bed her after she attended his hotel suite to administer a massage. So far, no charges have been filed.

美國前副總統高爾(Al Gore)上月才驚傳與結縭40年妻子分道揚鑣,現在又驚爆性醜聞。美國媒體報導,一名奧勒岡州女按摩師在2006年曾指控高爾性攻擊,甚至聲稱當晚所穿內衣留有高爾的DNA,可資佐證。

根據《國家詢問報》等媒體報導,這名不願透露身分的54歲女按摩師指稱,2006年10月在飯店安排下,替以化名「史東先生」入住的高爾按摩。
抓手迫摸下體

當她按摩到腹部時,高爾要求她繼續往下,遭拒後大發雷霆,並抓住她的手碰觸自己鼠蹊部。按摩結束後,高爾愛撫她的胸臀、親她,還將她推上床,只差沒霸王硬上弓。
該女子在數周後才報案,表示當時「完全嚇呆,擔心失去工作」。據帳單顯示,按摩服務從當晚 11時開始,第一節為90分鐘,其後立即追加一節75分鐘。高爾共支付540美元(約1.7萬元台幣),另加給兩成小費。俄勒岡州檢方也證實,確實有女子報案稱遭高爾「不當肢體接觸」,但她後來不願接受警方訪談,也不願提告

American Kennel Club Announces the Top Dogs of San Francisco, 2008

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

The American Kennel Club released its stats of most popular dogs for 2008. (Sadly, if your pup didn’t come with papers, it might not have been counted. Moving on…)

What were the trends for 2008?

“San Franciscans seem to be moving their preferences from petite pooches to larger breeds,” said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson. ”The city by the bay added the German Shepherd and Rottweiler to its Top Ten while smaller breeds, such as the Pug and Dachshund, dropped in popularity.”

You see these Puli dogs all over town these days. When will they crack the top ten?   

The results for 2008, here are your most popular San Francisco doggies:

 1. Labrador Retriever
 2. Yorkshire Terrier
 3. Bulldog 
 4. Golden Retriever
 5. French Bulldog  
 6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
 7. Poodle     
 8. German Shepherd Dog 
 9. Maltese
 9. Rottweilers (tied)

Sorry Labradoodle, even though Brad Pitt gave one of you guys to Jennifer Anniston a while back, you’re still not respectable enough to be considered a breed of your own. Maybe next century.

More deets after the jump. Congratulations to the winners.
