Why just stare at sea lions on Muni?

Just when San Francisco seems really awful right now (see: Dolores Park since-quashed RSVP bullshit, this bus stop ad calling renters stupid, just about everything having to do with the SFPD), it’s good to see that we still have our sense of humor intact.

This Muni ad from the folks of the Castro Merchants reads:

Why just stare at the sea lions when you can pet actual bears?

Let’s hope they get awesome visitors, and not a gaggle of bachelorettes.

Clickhole: ‘6 Words Of Encouragement That Helped Me Stop Bringing My Own Chair On The Bus’


Over on Clickhole today, there’s a post that struck a chord. From 6 Words Of Encouragement That Helped Me Stop Bringing My Own Chair On The Bus:

I used to bring my own folding chair on the bus, but now I don’t, and I owe it all to the good-hearted people who reassured me that it was okay not to bring a chair.

The thing that really stands out here is that, over the years, we’ve seen a fair number of chair-wielding Muni passengers.

To whit:
Strange Cargo on Muni: Wooden-Chair-Sitting Crooner (above)
Swivel chair swivels on Muni
A new-new BART seat appears on trains

The question is: After reading the inspirational post on Clickhole, will you all be able to quit bringing your own chairs on Muni and BART? Only time will tell.

Poop-cleaning neighbors still need Muni’s help

The management at the apartment building at Post and Leavenworth has gone above and beyond in keeping their block nice and not-too-smelly, extending even to the Muni stop in front of the building. But when the Muni stop poop bandit hits your block, it’s just all too much. Here is their PSA sign that doubles as a cry for help.

Muni: We cleaned the seat (poop) as best we could. Please sanitize the seat and concrete – it smells. Thank you!

Hey 311, help a neighbor out.

Oh, and guess who helped me spot this sign? Driver Doug, who happened to be driving the 3-Jackson on my morning commute today!
