If California Believe In Omens…

SHOT: 5 Unsettling California Tax Rules

Just Dealing With Californians Can Mean Taxes. This one is a shocker, even by California standards. California is sending tax bills to plenty of nonresidents who just do business with Californians. Consider gig economy workers who work remote, and many other people out there. Take the case of Blair S. Bindley, OTA Case No. 18032402 (May 30, 2019). He lived and worked in Arizona, writing screenplays that he sent to studios in California and elsewhere. Since some of his customers were located in California, the state said his business—which was just him—had to pay taxes in the Golden State.

CHASER: Thousands of ‘penis fish’ wash onto California beach, shocking locals

The spoonworm, which can live for up to 25 years, feeds and swims using its “spatula-shaped proboscis.” It typically eats bacteria, plankton and other small particles which it collects using “sticky mucus nets.” The creature dates back 300 million years and also can be eaten — an anonymous colleague at The Post who has dined on a stir-fried fat innkeeper worm before in Shanghai, China, describes the taste as being “like a Livestrong band mated with a clam.”

    Looks like a gift that Cupid might send to Pete Buttigieg on Valentines Day but leave it to the Chinese to eat the things.

    Well, if it washes up on the beach at San Fran it will be put to work immediately as a tunnel diving turd burglar.

    The Universe is telling California to eat a dick.

    These jokes just write themselves.

    California could leave the union today and it would not be too soon.

    What’s your first thought when you see a penis fish? Pick it up, of course! (Sorry, I couldn’t find an emoticon for a Beavis laugh?)

    Way back when I dived for abalone along the northern Cali coast those ‘puds’ were called ‘cock fish’ by the locals around the Ft Bragg area. Supposedly sold for quite a sum in Frisco. Apparently the creatures did not live long after exposure to AIDS.

    “The Chinese eat them…”

    Do you know why I know that The Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist? There is no Chinese recipe to cook one.

    Whatever else you do with one of those penis fish, for God’s sake do not rub the damned thing.

    “leave it to the Chinese to eat the things”

    Not sure you’re giving Buttigieg enough credit there, old chap.
