Trolled by Safeway

Trolled by Safeway?

New signs at the Church and Market location of Safeway urge customers to “Help us keep the streets of San Jose clean.”

Since it’s hard to believe their employees wouldn’t know what city they work in, this can’t be a mistake; Safeway is trolling us on purpose. And what better way to troll San Franciscans than to confuse our wonderful city with that overstuffed suburb in the South Bay?

Good work, Safeway — successful troll is successful.

Has Safeway gone too far?

While trapped at the Market St. Safeway during the rainstorm today, I made a shocking discovery: Safeway carries not one, but THREE brands of frozen chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs.

Does this alarm anyone else?

Why do we need to make food shaped like extinct animals? Are there children out there somewhere who refuse to eat nuggets not shaped like dinosaurs? “No mom, I can’t eat this, it’s not shaped like a dinosaur.” Clearly, such a child needs to be loaded with ADHD medication and spanked repeatedly, not indulged in his absurd food preferences.

Sure, Safeway has four isle-long freezers, but there has to be a better way to fill them than this.

What do you think, has Safeway gone too far this time?

Inhumane animal treatment at Market St. Safeway

March 8th, 2011

It’s come to my attention that the Safeway at Market and Church is treating their adorable “Phat Lamb” sheep in an inhumane manner. Sheep are stuffed into tiny space on shelves with no place to move, or worse, dangled from plastic chains.

Please adopt one of these sheep and care for it properly. In the meantime, I’m going to be calling PETA to raise awareness of Safeway’s practices.



Alexia and I adopted a sheep from Safeway last year, and it changed our lives. Specifically, we seem to get to sleep more easily. Zzzzzzz…
