Here’s an update on the latest signage for The Red Door Cafe on Bush near Franklin.
Double entendre a gogo:
Ah, let’s check in with Matthew Engelhart of notorious Cafe Gratitude via Reyhan Harmanci’s Café Gratitude Shutdown Prompts Jeers as Well as Tears:
“Do you know who Deepak Chopra is?” he asked, referring to the self-help guru, before quoting from correspondence with his daughter. “She said, ‘I don’t know what you guys are doing but the fact that there’s so much passion for you, one way or the other, means you’re doing something great.’”
All right, that’s your baseline. now a little substitution. Imagine Adolph Hitler said this:
“Do you know who Deepak Chopra is?” the Fuhrer asked, referring to the self-help guru, before quoting from correspondence with Eva Braun. “She said, ‘I don’t know what you guys are doing but the fact that there’s so much passion for you, one way or the other, means you’re doing something great.’”
You see how that works? Pissing people off by doing bad things means that you’re doing something great, somehow.
(Also, property is theft, meat is murder, Terces is “secret” spelled backwards(!), Operation Barbarossa is the opening of the L.A. branch of CG, and, most importantly, Soylent Green is people.)
And speaking of Soylent Green, here’s what “2 for 1 wheatgrass Wednesday” looks like:

Good-bye, Cafe Gratitude restaurant chain.
You are… welcome, to leave any time you want.
(Also, if you all are so rich, why don’t you pay your bills and your employees, you deadbeats?)
Hey, did you catch South San Francisco Day in Orange Memorial Park over the weekend? Well, then here’s a little Rorschach test for you.
What do you see in the following sequence of photos? What do you think the kids thought? What does the performer playing Ronald think about this now? How about sponsor Genentech? And how about the pie? Was it egg-free vegan custard? Natch!
Anyway, get up to speed here and then take a peek at the following:
The color match between the bird and Ronald is impressive.
Let’s leave the last word with PETA:
“A man dressed as a giant chicken and identifying himself as a PETA member took Ronald McDonald by surprise and pied him in the face with vegan custard this afternoon during Ronald’s appearance onstage at the South San Francisco Day in Orange Memorial Park. The protest is part of PETA’s campaign to convince McDonald’s to switch to an improved slaughter method that would eliminate the worst abuses of chickens, including having their legs slammed into shackles, often breaking them, and being scalded to death.

“”McDonald’s can stop a great deal of cruelty simply by requiring its suppliers to render chickens unconscious before they are roughly handled and slaughtered,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “McDonald’s is responsible for forcing millions of chickens to experience an agonizingly painful death.”
