Last weekend’s Saturday Night Live captured the OB “Whistling Guy”, played by comedian Bowen Yang. The “Whistling Guy” – you may recall – showed up at the San Diego County Board of Supervisors back in August and created quite a scene.

SNL captured him briefly in their skit that portrayed a “School Board Meeting”.

Oh, great! Now OB is known for the Whistling Guy and the woman shot trying to invade the chambers of congress.

I liked it better when we were just known as the place to score dope down by the pier!

Right? But, ya know, there’s always been a different and at times ugly undercurrent to OB politics. See “the Colorful History of OB Rowdies, Radicals and Ruffians” , and “OB vs. the Klan and other white supremacists

That could become “a thing”. We could whistle our way through OB trying to score pot and evading gunshots. I wonder of Whistling Guy will sell as a costume for Halloween at Party City?

I’m sure it will at some point. Now that he’s become notorious enough around the country for an SNL skit, if not this year then next.
