The Most Dubious Moments of 2012

A lot of great things happened in 2012: the Giants won the World Series. That guy skydived from space. The Mayans were wrong. A lot of less great things happened, too. Today, we remember those...

UD - The TSA Determines Size Matters

The TSA Determines Size Matters

Where do we start here. Oh, yeah, with a guy claiming he has one of the largest, uh, manly parts ever recorded. And with the TSA at SFO frisking him because they thought he was smuggling something in his pants. Somewhere, Derek Smalls is nodding knowingly.

World’s Biggest Lollipop Unveiled

To honor the hallowed/fake holiday known as National Lollipop Day, local confectionary company See’s Candies unveiled its 7,003-pound, 16'7'' chocolate lollipop in Justin Herman Plaza.
