Funky Foto Contest Week 32

I’m not sure how to even make a joke out of this…maybe I ought to just play it straight for once? I have no doubt many of you have seen this building, from time to time, on daily basis. The question is…what it this place? This weeks winner receives a $30.00 gift card to Boston Market in that little strip center across the street from Costco. Of course you can use it at any Boston Market…but let’s keep the business in Foster City. Anyway, all the rules of the game are available on the left hand margin as well as above on the bar. The winner and all other correct answers will be announced on Monday morning. Any and all silly quips, semi obnoxious barbs and any jokes that are worthy will be published immediately along with all wrong answers. Have fun and I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for playing!

    I’m disqualified this week, but that’s the multi-purpose room at Audubon School…. me thinks.

  2. SteveTinFC says:

    If you had cropped out the overhanging roof element, it would look like the Foster City gallows!

  3. It’s the MPR (Multi-purpose room) at Audobon school.

  4. For some reason it reminds me of the townhome complex right next to the church at the corner of Beach Park and Foster City blvd. The complex is on Beach Park facing the bay trail. Dont know the name.

  5. SteveTinFC says:

    So I went over to Citibank the other day and was standing waiting for an available ATM. There was this sweet lady in her 80’s at the ATM looking terribly confused. She was holding an ATM receipt.

    I said “Ma’am, are you OK?”

    She said, “I’m not sure … can you help me check my balance?”

    Wanting to be a nice and helpful man and public servant, I shrugged and said, “OK.”

    So I pushed her … and she fell over. (rim shot)

    (Balance, get it … never mind…)

  6. How about a Boston Market joke? I found this online:

    Jerry Ferrara (best known for his role as Turtle on “Entourage”) once worked at Boston Market as a “chicken spitter” (basting and preparing the chickens for cooking). “I was intimate with about 400 chickens a day,” he recalled. Jerry quit after about six months when he landed a role on “King of Queens.” “I thought I had made it so I basically flipped everybody off and said, ‘take your chickens and go…’ something else.” The upshot? “‘King of Queens’ ended after about three days,” he recalled, “and I went to work in another restaurant.”

    [When he landed his role on “Entourage,” Jerry was working at a ribs restaurant. And? “I verbally said FU to each and every one of them!”]

  7. Jim Minkey says:

    Somehow I thought that in order for something to be a “joke” it had to be funny? Silly me! The Foster City gallows bit is pretty good though. The people could use it in case of an uprising against employees at City Hall!

  8. It’s Audobon School

  9. SteveTinFC says:

    Hey, I understand in the old days (ca. 1971-1975ish?) there used to be police officers at every Council meeting because things would get outta hand in there. Maybe that’s when those gallows were built. And since when did I become the monster that must be hung at the gallows?? Oh … I know … it’s when I apparently posted an unfunny joke! 🙂

    Still think the world of ya, brother Jim!

  10. Jim Minkey says:

    Actually, I wasn’t thinking of you on the gallows…I was thinking of you more along the lines of being in the Quasimodo role? (just kidding!)

    As I’m thinking about the upcoming Pilgrim-Triton meetings, maybe the Police will make a comeback in the council chambers after all?

  11. Dana Ferri says:

    Foster City Elementary School?

  12. Sean Ferri says:

    The Foster City Recreation Center

  13. Hey, i liked Steve’s joke- he brings “balance” to the blog!!

    Funky foto- congratulations – you actually stumped me this week : )

  14. SteveTinFC says:

    Oh, Larissa, don’t even get me started:

    – The Blog is strong with this one
    – No, Luke, use the Blog
    – I felt a great disturbance in the Blog, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced … by foreclosure!
    – Don’t underestimate the Blog
    – Obi-Wan Minkey is here. The Blog IS with him.
    – The ability to destroy a planet (neighborhood?) is insignificant next to the power of the Blog
    – The Blog is what gives a Jedi (home buyer) his power. It’s an energy field created by Obi-Wan Minkey. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy (community) together.
    – Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Blog

    And, of course…
    – May the Blog be with you … always!

  15. Ha HA!!!! Go Steve Go!!
