I ran across this photo while searching for something else, and I couldn't pass it by without highlighting it.
Our photographer captured the perfect moment of this protest, capturing a buffoonish Grim Reaper that's dead serious (pardon the pun) about the message he's trying to get out, contrasted with what can only be interpreted as bemused looks from his fellow protagonists in the background.
But all that horsehockey aside: Most importantly, I laughed.
