What’s this, a bunch of Bros loudly two-stroking themselves down Oak Street? Sure – you’ll hear them first, from blocks away, and then smell them later, what with the old-fashioned (and these days, widely banned) two-stroke style engines, which literally burn motor oil, by design:
Here’s a wider view. These Bros hail from the East Bay and the Central Valley, one assumes, based upon their apparel:
And in the middle of this loud scrum, it’s two members of the SFPD Motor Patrol:
Were they chasing or escorting – I couldn’t tell.
Later on, this crew tried to regroup on Masonic:
Now heading west on the sidewalks of Oak:
Leaving you with this, the last Bro I saw, GoProing his way up Fell:
But look who’s against Prop 29 – it’s that famous convenience store what’s on Fulton and Masonic what can’t sell lottery tickets no mo owing to what some people, mind you, just some people, might possibly be tempted to label LOTTERY FRAUD.

Now here’s your Convenience Store Triad:
1. Alcohol sales to underage students from neighboring high schools and the University of San Francisco.
2. Cigarette sales.
3. Lottery ticket sales.
So, if you lose one leg of your triad, you’ve got to make sure not to lose the other two, that’s one conclusion you might draw…
(And oh, I see, you give the $10,000 winning ticket to your gf for her to cash it in, you know, cause it might look a little suspicious if you, the Kwik-E-Mart owner/clerk, yourself did it? Wow, that’s using your noodle. Or not.)
I’m sorry, why do we even have a lottery in California? Seems like a magnet for fraud and other unhealthy activities, just saying.
And like your lottery ticket money goes to pay the State of California to go around and bust store clerks? Seems kind of pointless to me.
All right, signing off from the stoop of the Fulton Food Shop, kitty corner from Chris Hansen’s stand-up in front of the Fulton Street Lucky a few weeks back.
