The locally famous Bernal Heights rock, a frequently painted and re-painted neighborhood gem, is starting to get sh***y. During primary season, you may recall, the landmark was claimed by fans of Bernie Sanders and then reclaimed by supporters of Hillary Clinton in a protracted back-and-forth. Eventually, it turned purple upon the death of Prince.

Most recently, a few days ago, it took on a new incarnation as the popular "poop emoji," which, one has to assume, neighborhood children were forced to explain to their parents. San Francisco photographer Troy Holden was first to make note of the scene, and soon local blog Bernalwood was hip to matters, declaring the work "Genius!" yesterday.
Actually, it's a piece of crap.
