Mayor Employs Vile Pun, Says Obesity 'A Big Issue'

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 1:06 PM

A sense of humor is not one of Mayor Gavin Newsom's strong traits -- but do they give comedy awards for Twitter posts?

Newsom met with Michelle Obama in Washington, D.C. today to discuss the epidemic of porky children who won't get their behinds off the couch. On his way out of the meeting, the twitter-happy mayor dashed off a post complete with a Freudian slip that should leave folks twittering with laughter. Will someone forward this little gem Jay Leno's way?

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
