I Find This Photo Odd: This guy has a problem with twins

The other day, someone brought a sign to the Canucks game that said “Edler get in my Bed-ler”. It was creepy, and it got me to thinking that it’s about time someone compiled a post of the worst and most suggestive pieces of posterboard Canuck fans have brought to Rogers Arena. So I set out to do just that, combing through image galleries for uncomfortable signage.

Along the way, I came across this sign from a playoff game between the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center. It won’t make it into the eventual post of suggestive signs, of course, because it’s not suggestive. It is, however, hilariously vague:

Presumably, this guy means the Sedin twins, but when you fail to specify and just make a blanket statement like “Twins are gross”, one wonders if your problem runs deeper. Maybe he’s unnerved by the science of twinning itself?

I especially like the other guy there, making the crying gesture as though his buddy’s professed disgust for twins has devastated Roberto Luongo to the very core. Yeah boo hoo twins are dumb! What do these guys think, that Luongo spends his offseason touring the country, raising twin awareness? That he has a vested interest in worldwide twin acceptance? I doubt he cares all that much if these guys take issue. Heck, the sign may as well say:

Waaaah! The miracle of life is weird!

I imagine these guys brought other signs that speak to their issues with basic science.

Yeah boo hoo it makes no sense idiot!

Take that! Some of us don’t like birds, ass!

Get it out of our schools!

That’s all it is! Baby want his bottle!?

Anyway. This is the worst sign ever. Here’s a blank one so you can create your own signs depicting these guys speaking out against the way the world works. Please do, and be sure to share them with us.

      Argh, how are people posting freaking video links here when simple IMG tags do nothing?

    His sign is imcomplete. What he really means is:

    “Male twins who are better at hockey than I will ever be at anything in my life are gross. Female twins are HOT.”

    Sadly, it didn’t fit on the sign.

    He had actually brought the “I’m with Stupid” sign, but flipped it to the wrong side.

    What about the guy in Boston who had a “Two Girls, No Cup” T-shirt? I hate Boston more than Garfield hates Mondays but that was funny.

        I concur.

        Disparaging women to mock players. Not funny.

        As a female, I hate that kind of insult. This is 2012.

      Agreed, sexist and disturbing all at once. Par for the course for Bruins’ fans as I see it. Mike Milbury probably laughed though.

        nothing can be worse than the middle aged female Boston fan who brought the two Sedin “sister” dolls and was sitting right next to the Canucks bench waving them around. Speaking as a middle aged female myself I was embarassed by that. You have to wonder what thought process had to occur to make that happen.

    What does it say about my expectations for Chicago fans that I’m actually impressed that it says “are” as opposed to just “r”?

    The grown man mocking players through the glass has to be proud of himself. Still, it can’t hold a candle to grownups buying “Cindy Crosbaby” shirts and jeering him in Washington. I’m thinking: fine you don’t like Sid, that’s your business, but he’s young enough to be your son or even grandson, and you’re calling him childish names. What does that say about you?

    Fantastic post! As a twin, I am offended at this sorry excuse for a sign. We’re not gross so much as awesome beyond the freaking telling of it. ~__^

    And, lest we forget, Henrik Lundqvist is a twin; I think we can all agree that he is anything but gross.
