oh Somerville

While walking down Cherry Street this fine morning for to get some breakfast in Porter I noticed an entire side of the street had been ticketed with the usual white-and-orange tickets, oh so cheerful in their Creamsicle in-trouble-with-the-law kind of way, but each was also accompanied by a bright orange note stating "COURTESY WARNING: This side of the street is not to be parked on during a snow emergency. You will be towed the next time we have a snow emergency if you park on this side of the street."

Now the funny thing is that none of the signs on Cherry St. mention which side is THE FORBIDDEN SIDE. It's a one-way street, so perhaps the right side is supposed to be known as the forbidden side, but what about two-way streets? And, and, and, and.

I just know that last night during a so-called "snow emergency" where we actually had no snow, the city of Somerville must've made out like fucking bandits with these cheery courtesy parking tickets. Considering the city is now ruled by the mayor who made it a campaign promise to tow all cars if they're so much as parked funny, I can only predict this is just a sampling of the delights to come.

Maybe I should just give the car up at this point.

In completely unrelated news, did you know McDonalds has not only trademarked (ah ha!) the phrase "I'm Lovin It", but also the phrase in six other languages? Ah, the global fast-food joint. Fat-feeder to the world.
