SAN FRANCISCO Melody Studebaker stands solemnly outside the Fort Mason Safeway grocery store, along side her long term partner, Henrietta...
Studebaker, 62, and her partner, 60, are picketing the Safeway store this beautiful morning to draw attention to a most ugly practice within it. After a lifetime of witnessing the use of grocery store checkout line dividers, Strudebaker and her partner have had enough...

I am assuming this is humor, right?
YES this is silly satire.
I’m more annoyed by the lack or inaccessibility of the darn things when you want them.
More like stupidity.
“California State Assembly Member Nancy Skinner (DBerkeley) who last week proposed the Checkout Line Integration Act (AB 909) in the State Assembly, which would ban the inanimate objects in all grocery store lanes in California.”
If this is all they have to work on, I think we can successfully change to a part-time congress and half the cost.
Ya know, I thought I was reading satire.
Then I saw the picture of Melody Studebaker, who looks like the grill of a ‘49 Commander and had second thoughts.
This may not be satire. And it is California!
Old, ugly lesbians and old, ugly Democrap women look the same. Wonder why?
Maybe California should do away with highway dividers too! That way everybody can drive in any direction they want!
I think it is well-written satire, but this being California, who can really tell?
Now, if the article said Gov. Brown was going to tax the dividers, then I'd believe that the article was true.
If it ain't humor, it's gonna be...
an issue i finally agree on with the left but for totally different reasons. i hate those dividers but only because they make people weak, they use them to “defend their turf” when they could just be vigilant and keep an eye on their own stuff rather than depending on a stick to defend their noodles and canned peaches
This is the dumbest, morst ignorant, stupid....oh....San Fransicko?
Now I understand.
Just another good illustration why California is totally whacked-out and liberals/progressives need to be powerless.
The problem with writing satire these days is that the Left is so crazy that you really can’t tell where satire ends and the sad, sad truth begins. Or is it the other way around?
Congress should pass a law that mandates that a code phrase be placed in any satirical story making fun of liberals. For example, the law could mandate the phrase “green Smurf” be used in every satire.
But, then the damned liberals would decide that Smurfs are not Earth-Friendly ENOUGH and want to see them add Green Smurf to the cartoon and then we have to pass a new law!
It’s just spinning out of control folks!!
I am assuming this is humor, right>
Any city other than San Francisco and you would know the answer right away. But with San Francisco, you need to do a double take to to make sure it is humor.
Useful Idiots in full exposure - Vintage California.
For satire to qualify as such, it must be, in some way, distinguishable from reality...:)
Well, let’s see this thread was started by John Semmons, so it’s not REALLY GOOD satire!
Nowadays, to have some kind of indicator of satire I usually look for something outlandish like Republicans eating unborn babies or something like that, but when it’s coming from places like the Huffington Post, even then
