Vancouver Rioters...Kissing??

In all of the stupidity and silliness surrounding the riots after the game seven win by the Boston Bruins over the Vancouver Canucks last night this may be the photo that takes the cake.

First off, this is a confirmed, real, un-Photoshop'd photo taken by a Getty Images photographer who had been covering game seven and then went and covered the riots.  He didn't even know he had the shot until his editors let him know after going over his nightly take.

Drunk?  High?  In love?  Lust?  All of the above?  I'm not sure but the juxtaposition of a young couple kissing in the middle of a debris strewn street with riot police all around makes for an incredible photo.
