Every Flush You Take

While it’s hard to top talking urinal cakes as a proper homage to 43, we have a soft spot in our hard heart for what we used to call “participatory satire”, but to be geek hip we’ll now call “citizen satire”.

And what better place to be geek hip than San Francisco?

a group going by the regal-sounding name of the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is planning to ask voters here to change the name of a prize-winning water treatment plant on the shoreline to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.

Now that’s the Frisco we love, not the self-righteous cesspool of recent vintage. And if the City’s voters fulfill their civic duty this November, next January 20 we may have two historic events to celebrate in this great nation.
