Smoking Squid Stencil Spotted in San Francisco

The Rare Smoking Asphalt Squid of San Francisco

This rare asphalt squid was documented by an informant at Fort Mason Center (which is technically on Federal property). You can see lots more cephalopods of note on our Squid Blog where we’ve celebrated squid-spotting for 5+ years.

Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
