RSS icon Comments on The George W. Bush Sewage Plant


One of the happiest things I've read in the news in a looooooong time.

The sewage plant is a diversionary tactic.

because San Francisco is smarter than Seattle.

I hope the phrase "taking a Dubya" catches on.

Because you're not as cool as US. HA! HA! (some of my good friends are on the committee, and I love 'em)

The petitioners have been working the lines at Frameline (LGBT film festival) theaters all week.

Taking a Dubya:

The condition resulting from a combination of hangover and indigestion that results a person projectile vomiting into the toilet, then immediately sitting down on the toilet and taking a nasty shit. Repeat as needed.

Because it's stupid and juvenile, it's faction-building not unity building, the braod middle of America doesn't relate too well to this, it doesn't achieve anything except our oown amusement, and we should associate the anti G. Bush movement with fucking Geo. Washington and founding principles not with clownish and "irreverent" sillyness.

PC, 23% of the US doesn't like this.

@8, case of the Monday's, eh? Lighten the fuck up. Or, maybe you need to take a moment and drop a Dubya.

Because we're going to auction the naming rights to the Brightwater plant to the highest bidder.

Because we have better things to do with our time. Naming a sewage plant after some jackass? Who cares?

If this passes...

Gerenations from now, when school children in San Francisco go to visit their state of the art "George W. Bush Sewage Plant," the greenest and most efficient in all the world, they'll learn how Bush was instrumental in environmental inovation. And Bush will roll in his grave to be remembered that way.

I care. I have nothing better to do with my time than renaming Seattle's sewage plant after GWB.

So how do we go about renaming our plant? Is it too late to collect signatures?

Posted by elenchos | June 25, 2008 9:55 AM

Brilliant. Love it!

It is too high an honor for that d-bag.

I sent in a link to the Slog Tips email with a link to the original Commission MeetUp page where they were proposing this OVER TWO MONTHS AGO.

Am I annoyed? Perhaps.

There's also an outhouse in Worley, Idaho which is named the "George W. Bush Presidential Library."

I think pc is in dire need of taking a "dubya!"

Posted by Sad Comment | June 25, 2008 11:03 AM

This fits bush perfectly and it is probably the only thing that will be named after him

Posted by steve | June 25, 2008 11:03 AM

In his grand exit similar to his terrifying welcome down the street that day which turned out to be the worst national welcome any President had ever received in the history of the United States....came the memorable rhetoric "smoke em out!"

I would like to remember him as

'terrifying cheeks' = FLUSH HIM OUT!

Posted by Renee | June 26, 2008 3:03 AM

Actually, this sewage treatment plant represents the opposite of everything that Bush has stood for. The plant protects the environment by treating wastewater and storm drain runoff, cleaning the waste out of the water and purifying it before releasing it into the ocean. The plant is all about water conservation and reducing pollution. So while I understand the satirical objective, naming this facility after G.W.B. really kind of misses the point, and is more an insult to the SF water treatment system than anything else.
