On Sunday, August 29, the Republican National Convention began descending upon the Big Apple. And, wouldn't you know it, a lot of people took to the streets to greet them with hugs and kisses and friendly T-shirts and magical dragons and signs and all kinds of lovely, happy, sentiment because so many people are just that happy that those nice, cuddly Republicans are here this week. Here are pictures from the Big Welcome they recieved.

 

   
   
Yes, but will their tapes play in your VCR?
   


Hey Kids! Puff the Magic Protest Dragon wants you to frolic in the autumn mists ... and vote Kerry!

By the time the smoke cleared, a heartbroken land of Honah Lee had already declared a national day of mourning.

 

   
   


One thing about T-shirt slogans...

 

   
...they're so subtle nowadays.
   
   


Speaking of subtle... Check out Joe Normal-Looking Guy's pants. You see that huge lump housed in army-green camo? Those are his balls.

 

   
Ed was doing such a good job getting a third-degree sunburn and staying awake, his bosses wanted to express their gratitude.
   
   


As he rounded 33rd Street, still looking for the tour group he came with, Larry realized he probably should have buddied up before going to the protest.

 

   
Of all of the pins in Don King's personal collection, he loved his "George Bush Rides the Lightning" one the best.
   
   


For the last time: Wipe front to back! Front to back!

 

   


Protesters haul empty caskets in the streets before dropping them off at the convention, where the government will pick them up and promptly have them filled up with more young American soldiers.
