Mayor Employs Vile Pun, Says Obesity 'A Big Issue'

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 1:06 PM

A sense of humor is not one of Mayor Gavin Newsom's strong traits -- but do they give comedy awards for Twitter posts?

Newsom met with Michelle Obama in Washington, D.C. today to discuss the epidemic of porky children who won't get their behinds off the couch. On his way out of the meeting, the twitter-happy mayor dashed off a post complete with a Freudian slip that should leave folks twittering with laughter. Will someone forward this little gem Jay Leno's way?

Hot off the Twitter presses....

  • 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.'"
