I’ll tell you, SFGov DOES NOT LIKE these advertising trucks rolling about the streets of San Francisco, but there’s not much Frisco can do about them.
I suppose a parking ticket would be in order…
“There has been speculation among officials that the boat capsized due to a large, rogue wave, although the matter is still under investigation.”
Non, non, non!
“Rogue waves (also known as freak waves, monster waves, episodic waves, killer waves, extreme waves, and abnormal waves) are large and spontaneous surface waves that occur far out in open water, and can be extremely dangerous, even to large ships such as ocean liners.”
Ocean Beach aint in open water, right?
So SFGov spokesmodels should pick a different adjective.
How about sneaker wave? You know, the kind that sneak up on the unwary. Or sleeper wave, for the sleepyheaded mariner. Or set wave, if you’re a surfer.
Speaking of which, take a look:
I suppose, if you don’t know what you’re doing, then you could try to pass the buck by calling this a rogue wave (or an Act of God). But that would just go to show that you didn’t know what you’re doing.
Oh here we go, CNN does my job for me here.
How common was the wave what overturned our rescue boat? Was it a once in a day wave, or a once every ten years wave? IDK. But it certainly wasn’t a rogue wave.
If only we had a highly trained branch of the US military stationed nearby, standing by to help people in the water…

And if you wait for MUNI there long enough, that video camera will document your abduction or assault, as it has for others so many times before.
And if you wait even longer, the promise of that bus “shelter” dissipating sine-wave “roof” will be fulfilled by The Big One, you know, the one that will kill thousands.
And if you wait even longer than that, San Franciscans will have an SFMTA that actually is “somewhat independent” of the Mayor.
PS: MUNI sucks.
This is what our skies looked like during the Second Game of the World Series against Texas last night (and that link has an orange and black pump shot for you foot fetishists / women’s shoe salesmen*).
Here’s the reaction about town:
What do you say?
A lonely airliner at exactly 4000 feet heading towards SFO, just under all the commotion:
