With Berkeley Skirt-Lifting Bandit On the Prowl, Guide Dog Signs Become Even More Unintentionally Problematic

Posted By on Tue, Feb 24, 2009 at 6:30 AM

It seems Berkeley's skirt-lifting bandit and San Francisco's Outhouse Arsonist are locked in a competition to decide once and for all who is the Bay Area's Napoleon of Ridiculous Yet Disturbing Crimes.

Meanwhile, due to the sexual nature of Berkeley's serial predator, these well-meaning -- but horribly worded -- signs for guide dogs for sale at The Lighthouse for the Blind  in San Francisco have grown even more ridiculous. So, if you see a dog (or a person) wearing these signs -- obey them.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
