Vancouver Riot: Top Tweets Imploring Canadians to Behave
Let me start off by saying that in no way, shape, or form am I condoning or making light of what happened in Vancouver last night.
That being said, if there's one thing Twitter is good for, it's finding humor in even the most heinous of actions.
I've never really understood rioters, but then again, who does? Actually, these people might have a good idea of what's going through the rioters' heads.
As much as we hate sports riots and hope for the day that a victory or loss isn't followed up by massive destruction of city property, chances are that's not going to happen for a long time.
Well at least a few good things came out of the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots: here are the top tweets imploring Canadians to behave.
