This is a picture I did not take of a middle-aged man in a yellow wind suit, standing on the sidewalk, politely listening to the spiel from a cute, 20-something Greenpeace volunteer, whilst cradling a 26er of cheap rye behind his back.

(For those of you not Canadian or rural in origins, a 26er is a 26oz bottle of liquor — often called a fifth in the US — and rye is a type of whiskey made partially from rye grain, with many of the better known brands made by Canadian distillers.)
