Never Trust a Bus: “SCIENTOLOGY – KNOW YOURSELF, KNOW LIFE” – Now That’s a Big Ad

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

As seen in the Bay Area:

I knew a guy who took a test from a “scientologist” back when they were at 7th and Market, you know, back in the day. It had about 150 true/false questions. After grading it, the junior scientologist wrote “NEEDS SEVERE COUNSELING” on it in red. And I thought, no, I don’t think that’s what you mean.

But maybe it was. IDK.

Here’s how things looked back in the aughts when They were working Market Street:

All right, play us out, Tom. BTW, KSW can work for everything. Like the SFMTA could have KMW for “Keeping MUNI Working,” you know, whether it’s actually working or not.

Not That You’d Notice, But NASCAR is in the Bay Area this Weekend up at the Infineon

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

NASCAR, the second-biggest car racing series in the world, is fixing to liven up bucolic Sonoma on Father’s Day.

“Celebrate Father’s Day in the Wine County at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, June 18-20. Why give dad a necktie when you can give him the gift of Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart swapping paint on the twisting road course.”

These NASCAR posters on sale for the giveaway price of $.25 aren’t exactly blowing out the doors of our Lucky Stores. (Pepsi must think that San Francisco is just another town on the NASCAR circuit.)

Imagine NASCAR as Pixar’s Cars movie come to life – that’s the best way to describe it.

Anyway, be sure to make allowances for the crowds if you’re planning on going up to Wine Country this weekend.

(Expect Tom Cruise and son Connor (will Red Dawn ever get remade?) to be there this year the way they were last year.)

As promised, the group Anonymous showed up in numbers underneath the Transamerica Pyramid. How many? Well, more than last time. Call it hundreds.

See for yourself here

This man exited the Scientology building only to be confronted by the mob.
