Castro & Other Photos

Leah Garchik's column, San Francisco Chronicle, 10/25/11: Meanwhile, Strange de Jim was surprised to spot a "speed hump" sign at Noe and 21st Street. He turned to Wikipedia, which informed him that a speed hump is a "less aggressive" speed bump. "Not the way I do it," he says.

The San Francisco Chronicle rented me an outfit and we filmed a tribute to Herb Caen at the New Conservatory Theater.

This sign on Market at Castro has the "You Are Here" red star at 18th and Castro.

The S.F. Museum of Modern Art had an exhibit of signs on buildings in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

October Late-Night Joke Winners

Monday, October 3 Strangie to Craig Ferguson:President Obama and Michelle got married on this day in 1992, and they had a lovely dinner to celebrate the 19th anniversary of the last time anyone said yes to an Obama proposal.

Tuesday, October 4 Strangie to Jon Stewart: As the Republicans keep looking under rocks for a viable candidate, front runner Mitt Romney must be thinking, "What the fudge? This is starting to hurt where my feelings should be."

Wednesday, October 5 Strangie to Craig Ferguson: The Nobel Prize for Chemistry went to an Israeli scientist for his work on quasicrystals. The scientist was forced to leave his research group because they thought quasicrystals were crazy. So he found great success on his own. It's like the research group was Destiny's Child and he was Beyonce. He's probably taunting them in a subtle way: I'm rubber and you're glue. It bounces off me and sticks to ... my Nobel Prize.

Thursday, October 6 Strangie to Jay Leno: A 71-year-old woman was arrested for having sex in a parked car outside a bar with a 54-year-old man. Police aren't sure what they're going to charge her with. They're still waiting for the dust to settle.

Friday, October 7 Strangie to Jimmy Fallon: Thank you, drinking fountains. Or as I like to call you, face bidets.

Monday, October 10 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: A study found that most young people think the Christian church is unfriendly. And the Catholic church is a little too friendly.

Tuesday, October 11 Strangie to David Letterman: For tonight's debate each Republican candidate was paired with a professional dancer.

Wednesday, October 12 Strangie to David Letterman: President Bill Clinton is on the show tonight, and we had trouble with security. The bomb-sniffing dogs found the cue cards.

Thursday, October 13 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: A woman is suing a sex toy company because she got hurt with one of their vibrators. Apparently it didn't call her the next day.

Friday, October 14 Strangie to David Letterman: Bronco Rick Perry is the first candidate I've ever heard say he's not doing well because he's sleepy. You know, we criticized George W. Bush a lot, but there was one thing he was very disciplined about, and that was getting his full eight years of sleep.

Monday, October 17 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: The Occupy Wall Street movement has raised over $300,000, so technically they now have to protest themselves.

Tuesday, October 18 Strangie to Craig Ferguson guest Paula Poundstone: It's hard to follow the Republican field. It's like watching a front-loading dryer. It's Romney. It's Bachmann. It's Perry. It's Cain. It's a sock!

Wednesday, October 19 Strangie to Stephen Colbert: Our guest tonight, Ali Soufon, is an expert at getting information from terrorists. I'm going to have him call Time Warner customer service for me. 

Thursday, October 20 Strangie to Jon Stewart: No'Amor Qaddafi: He was on the hood of a car, groggy, and said, "Don't shoot me." But they shot him anyway. They're rebels. Here's a clip. I warn you, it's quite graphic. [Showed the pair of red shoes sticking out from the house that fell on the Wicked Witch of the West.]

Friday, October 21 Strangie to Craig Ferguson: The movie "Paranormal Activity 3" opens today. They're pumping these out pretty fast. In the new one the kids are haunted by the ghost of Moammar Khadafy. That's fast!

Monday, October 24 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: President Obama is appearing on Jay Leno to highlight the one job that WAS saved during his administration.

Tuesday, October 25 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: The Libyans have buried Khadafy at a secret undisclosed location. In other words, it's going to be the best season of "The Amazing Race" ever.

Wednesday, October 26 Strangie to Conan O'Brien: On "The View" Whoopi Goldberg revealed she travels with her vibrator. This was in response to Barbara Walters asking, "What's in the cello case?"

Thursday, October 27 Strangie to Jay Leno: A male escort by the name of Rent Boy claims he was hired for sex by a New Jersey mayor, who is married. I'm siding with the mayor. If you're not sure you're gay, renting is the way to go.

Friday, October 28 Strangie to Jay Leno guest Adam Sandler: I play my own twin sister in the movie, so I had to shave my legs. I'd do my calves and thighs, but I wouldn't know how high to go, so I'd end up shaving my vagina.

Monday, October 31 Strangie to Jay Leno: One kid wanted me to pay him $5 to give him candy. I asked who he was supposed to be. He said, "Bank of America."
