Frequent SF Weekly readers — and riders of the 14-Mission bus — may be familiar with Cosmie Silfa. Actually, while Silfa is a fine fellow, he's not nearly as memorable as his constant companion, Skippy. Skippy the service iguana.
Silfa and Skippy were featured prominently in the 2009 SF Weekly cover story, Service with a Snarl regarding the proliferation of service creatures in our fair city. We also chronicled Silfa's successful struggle to keep his service lizards (yes, plural) in his subsidized apartment.
Well, now he's hit the big time. Silfa happily called us up today to note that “Skippy made the Wall Street Journal — national!” And it's true, too.
