Argument Over Missing Egg Escalates to Gun Threat

Posted By on Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 5:55 PM

Would you kill for this?
It's a rare person who hasn't experienced the disappointment of a pilfered food item from a communal fridge, and that disappointment can be dealt with in a number of ways. Passive-aggressive notes are common. Yelling is big. My personal favorite is the getting even approach, which involves leaving an unwanted food item front and center in the fridge, infused with say, ex-lax, for the culprit's next unauthorized meal.

But on Thursday on the 300 block of Raymond Street in the Viz Valley, somebody took the disappearance of an egg especially hard. The cops got the "very dangerous call" at 5:17 p.m. and responded to the scene, where a male and his female roommate had been arguing about the egg. The egg in question had gone missing from the refrigerator, and the man had ultimately decided to whip out a gun. 

When police searched the place, they found a realistic-looking pellet

gun, and they also discovered that the man was on probation and had a

warrant for his arrest. It's unclear whether the incident had some

deeper significance, or the man was just a bad egg. (Cue

hysterical laughter).

  • 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.'"
