I mean. First, we passed that whole Prop 8 nonsense. Then, we somehow racked up 24 BILLION dollars of debt and we tried to close the gap by cutting funding for education, state parks and, of course, holding a giant garage sale in Sacramento.
The latest instance of total wackiness to come out of my state? Well, it appears that one of the veto messages recently sent by Governor Schwarzenegger contains a hidden message: a choice four letter curse word, followed by “you”.
The San Francisco Bay Guardian was the first one to notice the message. The phrase apparently becomes obvious when you read the first letter of each line in the veto. (Don’t believe them? Read the veto and see for yourself).
The Governator’s people are calling the secret message a coincidence. But many are pointing out what an odd coincidence it is that the message was found in a veto for a bill written by Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano. Earlier this month, Ammiano shouted a delightfully inappropriate remark at Schwarzenegger when the Governor showed up at a Democratic fundraiser.
REALLY? I’m not even sure where to start. I will say, I like picturing the staff of the Guardian pulling out their Ghostwriter pens and looking for secret codes and hidden messages. But beyond that, I’m mostly reminded of that thing boys used to do in seventh grade, where they’d type “58008” into their graphing calculators and turn them upside down to display the name of a female body part.
Except those were middle school-aged boys. And these are my elected officials.
Look, guys. When you’re done exchanging all these completely mature insults, I hear there’s something pretty serious going on with the Bay Bridge. If you need something to keep you busy, I’m sure a few million commuters in the Bay Area would appreciate your help.
