More signs from the ‘Twins are gross’ guys

Last week, we uncovered a strange photo from, I think, the 2010 playoffs. In it, two fans mocked Roberto Luongo, one with a bewilderingly vague sign that read “Twins are gross”, the other with the classic “crybaby” gesture. It was a hilarious juxtaposition, the nonspecific sign with its poorly executed dig at the Sedins that seemed to speak more to the fan’s distrust of zygosity, and the guy beside him, presumably confident the vague signage would reduce Luongo to tears.

It was maybe one of our favourite photos ever, and we had some fun with it. The sign was ripe for photoshopping, and we did just that, then invited you fine folks to join in the revelry. You have done so with gusto. Here are some of our favourites.

Biznow suggests that the tears are real.

Our very own Vansunsportsblogs administrator makes reference to some classic signage.

“The hat is from a store, just like all your childhood Christmas gifts, ass!”

The last image was by Claire. So is this one. I think she prefers Daniel.

Saarskorpe retroactively ruins Luongo’s childhood by explaining that The Flintstones wasn’t based on fact.

Andy gives us “Rebecca Blackhawk”, the Chicago fan that isn’t sure where to sit.

According to Dave, “The Chicago sign guys revel in revealing stark truth to Luongo.” Follow-up sign? “Death is inevitable.

Marissa hypothesizes that, perhaps, the man is trying to use his fists as binoculars.

“Yeah, the books are ruined for you now!” But, uh, spoiler warning, Lexie. Come on.

I SAID SPOILER WARNING.

And finally, SteveB gives us a self-referential image featuring Vince Vaughn stuffing his face and Alain Vigneault cracking up at the very idea of giving Jan Bulis the puck. This one’s just brilliant.

    Anyone else feel bad for the poor guy on the stairs?

      The guy on the stairs is my favourite part of the picture. His look says it all. He should have a little thought bubble:
      “Oh man, these guys again! You can pick you friends, you can even pick your nose, but you have absolutely no control over who else supports the same sports team”.

    I suggest that the last one there is perfect for use as the PITB blog banner.

    haha, loving Rebecca Blackhawk. The crude photoshopping only adds to its hilarity.

    I would hope this wasn’t a playoff game if the dude is in a Santa hat.

    That last one is expertly photoshopped.

    Nicely done!

    I think the guy on the stairs is my favorite part. Same position every photo, silently unimpressed by everyone’s photoshop efforts.

      Hahaha that sucks. Well I’ll have you know I’ve never read them either and the image ruined the surprise for me too.

      Did Snape really kill Dumbeldore? Not entirely sure about that. I think an argument could be raised that it was more like an assisted suicide.
