In Support of PA Turnpike Rate Hikes



We received this photo just in time!!!!

Yesterday the news was that the Turnpike Tolls are going to increase as of January, 1, 2014.

Usually we would say, “Hell no!” to something like that. But…..

We support the hike so that we can have access to drive on one of the worst roads to drive on in the rain that ALSO has some of the worst night-time markings of any other road ANYWHERE. We also support the raise in rates so that the Turnpike Commission can have plenty of money to put toward its legal bills regarding the former administration’s accusations of favoritism and kickbacks.

And who WOULDN’T want to pay more for the courteous service one gets at the toll booths!!! Oh wait, and the rate hike is DEFINITELY worth it when you think of the time you get to wait behind some Jagoff that doesn’t want to wait in the looooooooooooooong line to pay their toll and then scoots over into the EZ Pass lane and then beeps their horn in “Oh CRAP I didn’t realize this was an EZ Pass ONLY lane can you please let me through” fashion as they wait for an attendant to assist them WITHOUT ANY TYPE OF FINE!!!

And even more.. Turnpike-ites… we support your rate hike so that you can hire sign-putter-outter PROOF READERS, so that people don’t find pictures like the one above, Ya Jagoffs!

Thanks to @steelCityVoice on Twitter for this pic above that was taken near the Butler Exchange!

The Parking Lot “Scatter Drill”



You’ve been there… after a hockey game, after a Steelers game, Pitt Game, Pirates game and even after church!

ESPECIALLY church!!  All of those nice, sweet ol’ people that just said an hour of prayers… they get in their cars and become CRAZEEEEEEEEE Jagoffs as they try to beat each other to the last open table for post-church brunch at Eat n Park !

And after a big sports event.. everyone thinks they have the “special short cut” that allows them to get 2 cars FURTHER AHEAD than if they would have simply gotten in the line, like everyone else, as they pulled out of their parking spot.  Nope.. they have to zig-zag between cars and and make their OWN lanes!!!

Of course, sometimes there IS that driver that FORCES other drivers to make their own lane as they sit and sit and sit and sit….. while they let, what seems to be, the entire Steelers Fan Base in front of them because they are afraid to edge their car forward!

This ain’t Kennywood BUMPER CARS!  Some of you probably STILL don’t know how to back up… (HINT: it’s NOT by turning the steering wheel all the way to the RIGHT!)

Anyone ever heard of patience… taking your turn… or COURTESY, Ya Jagoffs??????

Thanks to @brookePGH from Twitter for being our Honorary Jagoff Catcher today!


Pittsburgh Beach “Photo Caption Contest”



If Pittsburgh Had a Beach …

Happy Saturday by the way… something a little different today.

Every once in awhile a new idea pops up around the Burgh that deserves attention, some good, some bad – and some to epic proportions! Which brings us to this photo-illustration from Bryan Brunsell, owner of PGH 4 Life Apparel Company.

“The idea popped into my head one day this summer looking at images of the Point and it’s three rivers – and thinking about how much Pittsburghers love the beach, but have to drive long hours every summer to get to one. So I worked some photoshop magic to create this fan-art image” says Bryan.
