San Francisco Is Pretty Pissed About the Super Bowl Coming to Town

Illustration for article titled San Francisco Is Pretty Pissed About the Super Bowl Coming to Town

Statues placed all over the city keep getting vandalized. “Sup Bro” reads one in the city’s Civic Center. Another placed in Alamo Square—just outside the Tanner household!—and meant to honor all that is good and decent about sports ball has been defaced for the third time.

Tiny fart-sniffing machines have been placed on every corner by Homeland Security.

A Verizon billboard has been erected on one of the city’s most prominent buildings like a giant penis tattooed in advertising. (Update: It’s been declared illegal and is coming down! Win one for the little guys!)

The most culturally sacred corners of the city have been turned into dens of commercialism.
