RIP Mr. Burbujas (via @ihazrabies)

This post on the Perception Filter blog tells a sorry tale of the (partial) loss of this character-filled sign in San Francisco, and some conjecture about hidden meanings within the scene depicted.  It appears that persistant grafitti has led the laundry owners to finally give up on repairing the sign, a very unsual way to lose a hand painted sign.  RIP Mr. Burbujas.
