Riot

Posted on Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Dave!Oh look... it's I Don't Give a Fuck Day!

Which is kind of uneventful, because every day is "I Don't Give a Fuck Day" to me.

So Vancouver made a good play for the Stanley Cup, but ultimately lost to the Bruins.

This, of course, was reason to riot in the streets... demolishing everything in sight and setting everything else on fire. In other words, to be complete and total dumbasses trashing their beautiful city. It's kind of difficult not to give a fuck about that, because I love Vancouver.

Anyway... by now the entire world has seen the striking photo of two people kissing in the middle of the Vancouver riots. When it was first released, the general consensus seemed to be that these two crazy kids got horny by all the violence and destruction then decided to drop in the middle of the street and make out...

Personally, I was thinking "Now there's a guy who has his priorities straight!" The world is going to hell around him in a maelstrom of stupidity, and he decided there was a better use of his time than smashing a window or smacking a police officer!

Eventually the couple was tracked down and told their story. Turns out they weren't making out in the middle of a riot. They said that the police overran them, beating them down to the ground with riot shields. The girl was hurt and understandably freaked out, so the guy laid down next to her and gave her a kiss on the cheek... assumably to calm and comfort her. If you can get the image of a total player out of your head, it's actually kind of sweet.

The internet, skeptics all, decided they were horny liars. Some were saying the entire thing was staged. But eventually the CBC released footage that showed they were telling the truth. the police actually did beat them down and overrun them on the street...

Riot Kissing Couple... Dude!!

Naturally, this is the internet we're talking about, so people started Photoshopping the kissing couple in all kinds of outlandish situations. I decided to take another approach. Since the riots were so fucking stupid, I decided to Photoshop them in other incredibly stupid situations...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to not giving a fuck.

    The funny thing is if Vancouver had won they still would have rioted. As with every big celebration there were people who were in the crowd with the clear goal of wrecking shit. Once a couple of people do it the mob mentality kicks in and people join in. Stupid? Yes! Human nature? Sadly it seems to be.

    I shook my head when I heard of this crap.

      You are absolutely right..
      even with a cup win, there would have been rioting also.

      i still remember the crap that went down in 1994, I kinda was hoping that this time there wouldn’t be any rioting.

      just sad sad sad..
      bunch of losers..

  2. Those photoshops rock. Also? I wish I had her ass.

    That is all.

  5. martymankins says:

    I love your Photoshopped meme photos.

  6. your photoshopping was fucking awesome! loved these. thanks for the out loud laughs.

  7. I totally missed this whole story until after they had figured out who they were.

    The photo does make them look like they’re a totally hot couple making out and not caring what’s going on around them.
