Share your Funniest Street Photo

Here's my favorite.  I'm walking down the street in South Beach, Miami, FL in 2007 when some guy pulls up in his yellow Lamborghini Gallardo and steps out with his "escort".  A moment later, a cop walks up and starts writing a ticket because, as he says to me, "Can you believe this clown parked in a crosswalk?"  I asked him if I could take a photo, and here's how it turned out of my little SD-110.  As he was writing the ticket, the driver's personal assistant, an effeminate man with a lisp, asked the cop to wait until he could move the car, but it was too late.  Such a stereotypical SoBe moment, but hilarious all the same.

WTF is right.  That's pretty funny, and I hope he's not the lifeguard!

Thats a Lamborghini Murcielago. just so you know haha
You can tell by the intakes that retract into the car there behind the passenger door. They deploy and come up at high speeds. Gallardo doesn't have this kind of intake they just stay put all the time.

but nice photo and story haha

Nice leer and forced perspective use, respectively! 

Here's another one - maybe not as funny, but I love the wording on the trashcan in the bottom right corner - "Find your Niche."  When I saw that, I had to grab the shot - it's in New Orleans:
