Laughing Sal greets you

On Thursday we went down to the wharf and checked out the fantastic Musée Mécanique, where this um, thing greets you once you walk in.

 

There's a plaque that says:

 

LAUGHING SAL

 

One of San Francisco's most notsalgic landmarks, originally located at Playland at the Beach from 1940 to 1972. Laughing Sal, also known as the "Fat Lady", has made us smile and/or terrified children for over fifty years.
