No No SoCha, Si Si La Lengua

April 13, 2010

Facepalm. SFGate is at it again.

While they clearly recognize the impending superiority of La Lengua, they keep calling it unworthy names like “SoCha” or “San Jose Guerrero.” (SanJoGue?) Come on people, stop being so derivative and/or literal. Never mind that the 555 Bartlett building (hey, open a bar called the Triple Nickel!) would be in NoCha, not SoCha.

La Lengua es claramente más awesomente!

I am proud to say that people who are not me have already taken to the comments section spreading the awesomeness of our toponym. The SFist thread is already well covered, but once again I ask you to hold your noses (and any other orifices) and dive into the SFGate thread. A grand party will ensue once we get it in print!

Amazingly there are a few rational voices in the SFGate comment pit.  This is my favorite:

To those of you complaining about CC/Army getting remodeled and “ruining your commute”: bite me. I live here and I’m freaking sick of crossing the street with my daughter and having to watch out for all you pinheads going 40mph hell-bent for the 101 all the while talking on your cell. I hope the new street makes you late every day.

UPDATE: Oh CurbedSF, I thought you knew better. (Clever title though.)

Get on it, folks.

    You gotta get that bar/cafe (Socha) on Mission St. to get with the program. They are clearly setting the agenda for the entire neighborhood (with help from the Chron).

    Like saddlebacking and santorum before it, La Lengua must spread!

    Renaming neighborhoods like this is the first step in gentrifying them. Sorry but I want no part in that.
