    Uh. Deron?

  2. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    I know.

  3. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    Wait, did I miss something?

  4. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Cindy and I are just contemplating the Canadianness of this and whether it matches our expectations.

  5. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Some of the photos are more Canadian than others.

  6. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    That sixth one is pretty hot.

  7. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Yeah, that one has kind of a ‘V-J Day in Times Square’ feel to it.

  8. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    My favorite is the guy who won’t write out fuck on his hate sign.

  9. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    I think my favorite is the riot police showing up on horseback.

  10. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    That one was so obvious as to be invisible. Thank you.

  11. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    That comment was in response to the f!#k sign.

  12. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    I like the Asian kid with the hockey stick.

  13. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    And the shifty-eyed kid holding an $800 handbag with the tags still on it.

  14. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Oh, and the guy holding a bloody mannequin leg like a club.

  15. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    I wonder what would’ve happened if they’d lost to a Texas team.

  16. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Hey. Let’s all move to Canada.

  17. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    How would we say honk?

  18. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    ‘H!#K’

  19. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    I think it’s just a quieter version of the way we already say it. Spelled the same. Kinda like New Zealand and Australia.

  20. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Okay, fuck it. Joel wins.

  21. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    Technically, Joel weins.

  22. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    Joel wins?! I’m going outside right now to flip some cars over. Joel wins…you know what
    F!#K Joel.

  23. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    Sacramento is burning.

  24. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    “Single Person Riot” would be an entertaining Improv Everywhere sketch.

  25. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Y’all boys are doing a good job of cheering me up today. Thank you.

  26. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Cindy, I’ll meet you downtown if you want to start something.

  27. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    As soon as I get this car flipped, people will know there’s a riot and come join me.

    Maybe I should go find a SmartCar.

  28. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    So now some people are claiming the kissing photo was staged.

  29. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    All photos are staged.

  30. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Some photos are more Canadian staged than others.

  31. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I can’t meet you, Deron. I’m in jail.

  32. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Wait, you mean those people weren’t just laying in the middle of a riot making out? You think they did that because of the camera man?

    Next thing you’re going to tell me is that those guys with shirts tied up over their faces don’t always dress like that.

  33. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Cindy, I’m proud of you.

  34. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Thank you. I wasn’t going to let that Mavs parade go by without showing my Canadian side.

  35. David Stager on June 16th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Mannequin flying through window takes the cake for me.

  36. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    This is a good thread.

  37. Aaron Winslow on June 16th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    In a pinch, I could masturbate to more of these than I would like to.

  38. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Oh, Canada.

  39. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Aaron: I count three. Maybe four, if you’re into girls crying in pain on the sidewalk.

  40. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Are we still going to Las Vegas in August? Because we could do something like this there.

  41. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Riot on the Strip!

  42. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    Aaron. “In a pinch.”

  43. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Cindy, I hope so. Who’s on the planning committee?

  44. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Uh. Us?

  45. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Wait, let’s make Smith do it.

  46. Carole Corlew on June 16th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    We are still at war. Over what I never knew to begin with. And now PEOPLE ARE RIOTING OVER A HOCKEY GAME. This is not real This is not real This is not real.

  47. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Am I planning the trip or the riot? Either way, I’m a little busy trying to flip this stupid car.

  48. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Michael, you’re planning the trip. You’re a shitty rioter.

  49. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    What until you see my trip planning skills.

  50. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    and my typing skills.

  51. Michael Smith on June 16th, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    I like your sleeves. They’re real big.

  52. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    I’m serious. Simone has to go. I want Simone in Vegas.

  53. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    I’m laughing yet have no idea what you are talking about.

  54. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Look, I’m willing to drive all over the fucking place and pick people up for a road trip. As long as we agree to stay in tawdry places.

  55. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Simone knows tawdry.

  56. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    Carole. Adopting the attitude of the blue jay in the living room. Because — well, what else can you do?

  57. Amy Mabli on June 16th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    Today at work a Bruins fan tore down the Canadian flag hung by our VP and replaced it with an American one.

  58. Amy Mabli on June 16th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    It’s been a good day.

  59. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Oh say can you see!

  60. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    I wonder if Aaron would masturbate to that?

  61. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    In a pinch.

  62. Deron Bauman on June 16th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    Would?

  63. Kelsey Parker on June 16th, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Okay. I just don’t get it. A hockey team lost?

  64. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    National honor was besmirched. Canadians were made out to be losers.

  65. Kelsey Parker on June 16th, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    There are better honors to defend.

  66. Cindy Scroggins on June 16th, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    That’s why it’s reached the point of absurd comedy.

  67. Kelsey Parker on June 16th, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    Yeah. I think I’m identifying with the victims too much here. Who, by the way, are not the rioters.

  68. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    If it hadn’t been an actual real-life serious Destruction Party, I’d say, “Oh, those are scenes from Deron’s documentary! Cosplay! Reenactment!”

  69. Sheila Ryan on June 16th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    It does suck for the property owners and taxpayers and no mistake. But at a distance, as a spectacle, it looks like pure performance art.

  70. Joel Bernstein on June 16th, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    Hey, someone got hit in the nuts with a flash grenade.

  71. Rick Neece on June 16th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Riot. Mob-rule, scares me everytime I see it. During the Rodney King riots in LA, Danny and I watched, on the news, video, of a man dragged from his delivery truck, at a stop-light, passing through the neighborhood. A man threw a big rock and hit the delivery man in the head. The delivery man hit the ground and convulsed. The thrower, danced over him, then kicked him in the side.

    Danny burst into tears. I held him. “It’s not happening, here,” I said. But it scared me that such things can happen at any given moment, wherever one lives.

  72. Carole Corlew on June 17th, 2011 at 7:21 am

    Reginald Denny, Rick. How could you forget that. Nearly beaten to death while police just around the corner were ordered to leave the area instead of responding to help him.

    I am not here I am not here. As you indicate, Shelia.

    I did not know Canadians were as thuggish as us. And the self-named hooligans across the pond. One more little delusion up in gasoline smoke.

  73. Aaron Winslow on June 17th, 2011 at 9:30 am

    If there’s a question about the odds as to whether or not I would masturbate to it, the answer is… in the long run, the house always wins.

  74. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 9:33 am

    Vegas!

  75. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 9:33 am

    Honk!

  76. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I’m gonna count cards.

  77. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 9:48 am

    Cindy, there are 52.

  78. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 9:59 am

    If we riot today, no one will expect it.

  79. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 10:00 am

    You’ll do great.

  80. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 10:01 am

    Fool proof.

  81. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 10:02 am

    We can riot, count cards and masturbate all at the same time. In Vegas. While wearing maple leaf lapel pins.

  82. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 10:20 am

    I’m flipping cars like a mother fucker.

  83. Sheila Ryan on June 17th, 2011 at 10:23 am

    I want to kick some dude in the peanuts.

  84. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Shit, I’m back in jail.

  85. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 10:29 am

    Have fun masturbating.

  86. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 10:30 am

    ok

  87. Michael Smith on June 17th, 2011 at 10:42 am

    Ok. My travel plan right now consists of Cindy driving to a location, Boston to begin with, picking people up and then driving them to Vegas and dropping them off. After Boston, she’ll drive to D.C and do the same thing. Then New York, KC, Dallas, LA, SF, Sacramento, and Portland.

    Then she’ll start driving everyone home, in the same order.

    Oh, and while she’s in Portland, she’ll probably start a riot.

  88. Michael Smith on June 17th, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Oh! I fogot Chicago.

  89. Sheila Ryan on June 17th, 2011 at 10:45 am

    I guess I just have to get myself to KC. Is that some kind of a cost-cutting thing?

  90. Sheila Ryan on June 17th, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Oh. Okay. I can get myself to Chicago! But really, Dubuque would be more convenient.

  91. Sheila Ryan on June 17th, 2011 at 10:46 am
  92. Michael Smith on June 17th, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Dubuque then. Is there anywhere else she should have to go?

  93. Cindy Scroggins on June 17th, 2011 at 11:09 am

    Deron, Michael is acting out again. Planning seems to be back to us. I will get to work on it as soon as somebody springs me from the hoosegow.

  94. Dave Vogt on June 17th, 2011 at 11:12 am

    She’ll probably want to go to Reagan National to get Cece, but I utterly refuse to go there. She’ll have to make a separate trip to get me to Dulles International.

  95. Deron Bauman on June 17th, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Again?
