No, San Francisco MUNI Buses are not Gluten-Free

Fake signs declare to San Francisco MUNI buses to be Gluten-Free.

Celiac.com 12/16/2016 - Gluten-free news is everywhere, but so is fake news. Thanks to someone's sense of humor, the two collided recently, when signs recently appeared inside San Francisco buses, declaring:

THIS IS A GLUTEN-FREE BUS.

Riders of San Francisco's buses may have seen these and other tongue-in-cheek ads, including signs that read:

CHEESEBURGERS AND LIQUOR UPON REQUEST

No, you cannot actually get cheeseburgers or liquor on the bus, or any MUNI bus in San Francisco. Nor is the bus in any way gluten-free.

The signs sport the wry Twitter hashtag #MUNIFACTS

Sometimes fake news, and satire sites make it easy, and sometimes they make it harder to discern the truth of the claim.

These pranksters seem to be having a good time doing the latter, as witnessed by another sign that read:

FARES MAY BE PAID BY CASH, CLIPPER, OR MAGIC BEANS.

So, if you're lucky enough to see one of these, be sure to smile, because that seems to be the culprit's main intent.

thank you guys. I'm hoping the Gi will call back tomorrow. I'm getting the kitchen totally gluten free, except for a few things my sister who is a bit disabled is going to have. But no bread, flour, pasta and most other things will not have gluten. And my daughter doesn't go to school, she d...

Unprocessed food is great, but a life without chocolate no way! Am sure you will find a suitable brand. I don't eat Lindt, think they may use barley, others may know more. The Moser Roth are Aldi own brand. Looks like Aldi aren't in CR so not an alternative for you sorry. Maybe chec...

Ok guys, I'm not an expert. Maybe it was really just cc as Matt said. Or my body is just too sensitive now and this thing is too artificial/chemical. I feel that real unprocessed food is better for me now. It won't be a problem to find another brand. The Moser Roth doesn't sound familiar t...
