THEORY: If a Corporation Illegally Markets on the Sidewalks of Frisco, It Will be Coerced Into Buying SFMTA MUNI Bus Ads

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

So here’s the theory. Say your marketing people go hog-wild with the chalk ads on the Streets of San Francisco, like this:

So then somebody calls 311 or somebody else posts a photo on the Twitter and then an investigator at the City Attorney’s Office takes a look at things and then the people at Parlophone / Warner Bros. get a jingle and then somehow things get smoothed over by the Brothers Warner or somebody else making at buy at the SFMTA MUNI for some hastily-created and more or less useless ads such as:

Cf. the Blue Wolf at a Dream Force about 1.5 years ago:

And then these hastily-created and more or less useless ads started to appear:

Just a theory, man.

And here’s the thing about chalk. You can’t scrub it off your car tires to avoid a citation and you can’t scuff into Frisco’s sidewalks, I’m srsly. What’s that, UBER, Microsoft, Verizon, et al, it’s “only temporary?” Well, yeah, sure, that’s what I’m talking about, it’s agin the rules, temporary or not.

Mysterious “PREDATOR SCENT STUDY” is “IN PROGRESS” in Frisco – As Always, “DO NOT DISTURB THE STRAW BELOW”

I’ll try to pay off on this headline. See?

And see?

So what’s a predator? IDK.

Nearby, say within a half-mile or so, we have/had (exotic, red) foxes:

Und coyotes, yah?

I’ve seen these kinds of COYOTE ALERT signs near the PREDATOR STUDY area. Here’s one coyote critter from farther away back in the day, near the Buffalo Paddock:

So those are my guesses. I suppose we could be talking about raccoons and skunks and whatnot as well.

Someday we’ll find out about this PREDATOR STUDY, I’m sure…
