Last night I posted a pic on the open thread that I thought was just pure genius.
I love "our side's" sense of humor. I mean face it, the right just can't compete. The right's answer to The Daily Show, was just embarrassing.
Anyway turns out the pic was part of a hilarious new Tumblr blog, The Pepper Spraying Cop. The intro reads:
Little did we know that Pepper Spraying Cop has cracked down on so many famous moments in history!! This Tumblr will help document the long pepper spraying arm of this officer of the law!
Here's another from the blog:
"Make sure you get the First Amendment real good."
When you need a moment levity, surf over there and see the creativity there, lampooning the buffoon. They accept submissions and I was so inspired I cobbled some together quickly today. Mine after the fold, the blog is here.
Some the images I submitted to Pepper Spraying Cop. They haven't yet been posted, if they ever are, you can say you saw them here first.
"The Square is closed. Free speech time is over. You can protest on Monday between 2 pm and 2:15 pm. Now, fuck you, get out of the way."
"I told you not to look behind the curtain! Now, I've got you and your little dog too!"
"Take a shower. Jesus. French hippies are the worst."
"Fuck you and your sissy arts funding. Have a bake sale."
"Wah, wah, wah, so the league canceled your health insurance, cry me a river. Hurry up and die. Your Medicaid is costing the taxpayers a fortune."
aigeanta's suggestion. Yes, I entertain requests.
"Boo hoo! Someone tossed some litter out of their car. You want something to cry about, I'll give you something to cry about!"
"You're next, skinny guy!"
"This'll teach you to dream, you dirty, no-good, rabble-rouser!"
On a serious note, like Rachel Maddow, I think the power of ridicule is great, and embrace this opportunity to make Lt. John Pike even more infamous.
His nonchalant expression seen over and over in these photos certainly stands in stark contrast to UC Davis and the police department's lie that he was acting out of fear for his personal safety, huh?
" 'cuse me Mr. Policeman? My Daddy keeps telling me that have to go to Penn State Football camp to 'man up.' But I don't like it there, the bad man touches me. So I ran away, and I just want a root beer float, can you—AAUUAUHAGAHAGAHAAGAHAAGAHAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!”
Update 2: Inspired by stolen water.
"I told your hippie son not to hang out here anymore!!!"
Update 3: Thanks to jwinIL14 for the image, Happy Thanksgiving.
"Happy fucking Thanksgiving! Like some pepper with your meal?!
Update 4: Yeah, this was huge today. NBC news mentioned it and the Los Angeles Times lead their story with the oft-requested, "Last Supper."
It appears everyone covered it.
Smosh.com collected "Best Of 'Pepper Spraying Cop' Meme" and didn't disappoint, it's a great list, my favorites:
May it create an indelible impression in all our minds and may Lt. John Pike's be remembered in infamy for his cartoonishly evil actions on Friday.
