When I first saw this picture I thought “GOOD! It’s about time the law did something about people who wear GIR hats!”, but then quickly realized this was a girl protesting as part of Occupy Wall Street.
Suddenly this girl, in my mind, was the most badass GIR hat wearer I had ever seen, existing in a Mad Max style world where she was simply wandering this fucked over wasteland, wearing whatever she found on corpses (a GIR hat in this case), just struggling to survive.
And yet, despite having to fight and claw a living out of a blasted nothingness, she still finds a spark inside to fight against what she thinks is wrong about the hell she lives in.
I imagine that shortly after that frame of video, she let out a monstrous battle-cry like Lord Humongous and head butted that officer, leaving a GIR-faced bruise on his terrified face.
GIR-hatted protester girl, this can of Dinky-Di’s for you.
UPDATE: So apparently the girl getting arrested was just there taking photos and had no real sense of what was being protested, so forget the Mad Max scenario let’s go back to the idea that the cops were just arresting someone to protect society from having to look at GIR hats. Not as cool, but let’s thank those officers for doing fine job now. The good news is now there’s an empty slot for a fan of mine to be caught doing something noble while looking silly.
