How I Ruin Happy Things

After the Stanley Cup riots, REAL Vancouverites showed us the spirit of their city by pitching in to clean up after the Surrey a-holes. Photographer Andy Fang noticed all this and captured the images of these awesome everyday volunteers to counter the images we've been seeing of the rioters.

Even the famous Vancouver Greenmen came out to lend a hand:


And here's me ruining this: I know I should be all inspired ... but all I can look at is that guy's overly-defined package. And I don't mean the garbage bag. It's almost as distracting as David Bowie's crotch was in Labyrinth. Almost.

Maybe this is why I never get taken to the ballet.

rioters were mostly from Maple Ridge and Surrey, by the way.

Totally justified. A girl needs some surprises left to her.

I'm so happy I'm not the only one that notices things like that!

Good call about Labyrinth-I loved that movie as a kid, but always found the Bowie's costume disturbing...I mean distracting...no, I mean disturbing.

I agree, the green men crotch shots are rather distracting ;P

David Bowie is the worst! And why did all his goblins have to be knee high, so his package is in the top part of the screen the whole time!
