We’ve seen a lot of weird flyers in the neighborhood — a lost pair of pants, uproar over dog poop, a QR code in search of an apartment — but these are weird in a new and refreshing way.
A handful of flyers popped up on Haight Street last week, promoting seemingly-fake events and services.
The one above, posted near Haight and Pierce, advertises a “POOL PARTY! AT OCEAN BEACH,” with details only listed as “DATE/TIME: ALL DAY SUNDAY FUNDAY.”
Further down the block is this ad for a “DOG WALKER,” though not the traditional kind.
My poor disabled pup Buster finally kicked the bucked & I can no longer bear the memories that surge at the sight of his tried and true dog walker. IT MUST GO! Any price will do. Excellent condition, save a few bite marks. CALL CARL: 415 824 5555″
And then there’s this “HANDY MAN FOR HIRE”:
“I’M THE MAN:
– THE MAN WITH THE HANDS –
- Two fully functioning human hands.
- Ten fingers, five on each hand for optimum strength and durability.
- Naturally right handed, but ready to fulfill most ambidextrous tasks.
- Work involving two feet available (additional fees may apply).
Finally, back near Haight and Pierce, there’s a flyer for an omnipresent art show:
We’re not 100% sure who’s behind these flyers, but we do have one clue. A phone number on the HANDY MAN FOR HIRE flyer matches one listed on the website for Firehorse Salon, at 659 Haight Street. So perhaps the salon or one of its employees is having a little fun. We’re content not knowing the source, though. Anyone who manages to add a little levity and mystery to the neighborhood is OK as far as we’re concerned.
