Rape Van

This suspicious looking bus was parked on our block last weekend. Probably a bunch of good-hearted and naive 21st century bourgeois hippies, but you never know.

It reminded me of a van I saw parked on Commercial Drive in Vancouver way back in the early '90s. It was a classic Ford Econoline rape van, painted dark blue at its base, but covered everywhere in graffitti and stickers including, in really big bold letters right along the sliding side door "TAKE THE FUCKING CANDY BAR AND GET IN THE VAN LITTLE GIRL!". Even at the time I found that to be quite risky. Today they would probably be pulled over immediately and never seen from again.
