I saw a video of a looter throwing a brick at a window to break in. Funny thing was the brick bounced back and hit him in the face and dropped him, lol. Maybe funny isn't the right word.

I saw that one. And yes, funny is the right word. He earned that one. His friend was all, like, "Dude? Dude!!" And then he tries to carry him off. Idiotic behavior earns idiotic results. ;)

Statues. Toppling now. Confederate symbols. Looter. (Race relations.) Political, and socially contentious.

Grumpy me saw this thread as a way to trivialize the serious issue of monuments to slavery and the confederacy, but I like the direction it's taking now.

chizhik-pyzhik-in-st-petersburg.jpg

Chizhik Pyzhik, an 11-centimeter statue of a siskin, was installed near the Summer Garden in 1994, on the site of the former Imperial Legal Academy, founded by Prince Pyotr Oldenburgsky in 1835. The Academy's students wore green and yellow uniforms that apparently made them look like siskins. Their habitual - clandestine - visits to a well-known local hostelry led to the Petersburg folk-song, "Chizhik Pyzhik, where've you been? On Fontanka, drinking vodka."
