Vandals. Nothing more.

Fearless Girl, a small statue conceived by a global investment firm that went viral earlier this year.

Well, at least someone finally described the advertisement (for State Street Global Advisers) properly instead of stupidly defending it as a statement against the beast of capitalism.

2 minutes with a water hose and it'll be good as new.

I always figured Charging Bull and Fearless Girl quickly became the best of friends.

And give it a good rub all over with this stuff.

Make it nice and shiny.

I imagine eco-friendly paint is pretty easy to clean up.

Did they 'tea bag' the "Fearless Girl" while they were at it?

Wait, is Arturo Di Modica that whiney little biatch who got his panties all bunched over over the statue of a little girl someone put up in front of his bull?  Yeah, fark that arsehole.  Someone should take a hacksaw to that statue just to piss him off even more.

"Draw The Blue Line is asking New York City and the rest of the world to put horizontal blue lines across buildings (facades and interiors), trees, fences, windows, on social media, everywhere" during the Generally Assembly, the group added.

I'd get a kick if they wind up appropriating this:

into a symbol of environmental advocacy.

"Draw The Blue Line"  is a group of douches who throw paint on shiat.

What better way to express your disapproval of fossil fuel induced climate change than using fossil fuel powered transportation to bring some fossil fuel based paint to a fossil fuel forged statue?  That'll show 'em!

wait, seriously?  the fearless girl is a marketing campaign???

Well now it's just far, far, far funnier than it used to be.

I'm sure they will be tearing that down before long as well.

Of course. The bear is the one that scares her.

I sometimes take friends and relatives to visit the Naval Academy.  The first stop on my agenda is always the statue of mascot Bill the Goat, now situated right across the street from the pedestrian entrance at gate eight.  Should you ever see it, check out Bill's genitalia.  It's almost certain that some plebes will have Brasso'ed  his balls.

Subby has obviously never seen the bull. Everyone touches the balls.

But...
But...

Rush Limbaugh says climate change isn't real. Isn't he a farking genius who would never lie?

And as further proof, The Donald says it's just a Chinese conspiracy.

And all the heat out there, and the part of the planet burning down, and the record temps in India and Pakistan?  Hey guy, that's nothing. Don't worry about it.

I'm totally serial.....

should have just torn it down.  You don't get arrested if you do

Fearless girl is more a monument to humanity's hubris. Staring down the "charging bull" of climate change, do we take any steps whatsoever to limit our growth? Certainly not, since that would mean reproduction isn't a "right," as well as hint that it comes with attendant "responsibilities."

How to institute change:

1. Pick a cause. Doesn't matter; just pick something.
2. Make demands.
3. Deface or destroy someone else's property, especially art. The more unrelated the better.
4. Name yourself ISIS, or maybe Taliban.
5. Repeat your demands.
5. Take a--wait, go back a couple...
