I Dig San Francisco’s Sense of Humor

6a00e54ef036d6883400e54fad79b38834-800wi.jpgThe best jokes are the ridiculously elaborate ones that come at taxpayer’s expense:

A San Francisco measure seeking to commemorate President Bush’s years in office by slapping his name on a city sewage plant has qualified for the November ballot.
The measure certified Thursday would rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.
Backers said the idea is to commemorate the mess they claim Bush has left behind by actions such as the war in Iraq.
Local Republicans contend the plan stinks and said they would oppose it.

Get it? Cause Bush was a shitty President! Get it? Get it?

I bet it passes, too. And then those poor schmucks who work there will forever have to tell people they are employed by Bush Sewage.

[Seth here, just to add what I think is the best part of this story — the SF Public Utilities Commission spokesman suggests that they’re against this because the plant is anything but a symbol of inadequacy: “The plant that they’re seeking to rename really offers extraordinary environmental benefits. Without it, raw sewage and storm water would flow into the bay and the oceans and the streets. That’s not our understanding of what the authors of this initiative believe the current president has delivered.” So the folks behind the shit factory don’t even want it to be named after Bush. Hilarious.]

Next, they'll have a Bill Clinton WhoreHouse in Reno! And the Ted Kennedy Memorial Bridge (that's underwater somewhere)! And I'm personally lobbying to get myself a Barak Obama Weathervane (points whichever way the wind blows) and a John Kerry Wafflehouse.

Somehow I doubt you'd appreciate those just as much.

Well, I would enjoy the Waffle House. And what man doesn't enjoy a good whorin'?
