They Protested The Amount Of Trash In Their City, And Now They're Even Angrier

The city of Beirut currently looks like something out of a Greenpeace documentary, with rivers of trash flowing freely through the streets. It all began when people started protesting that their streets were filled with garbage, which eventually led to them protesting the government in general.

Then, presumably, some Beirutian rhetorically said, "Well, at least it isn't raining!" And so it did.

It will be pretty hard for their government to make a case against them now that their whole city looks like a puddle in Jersey City. Maybe some good will come out of this putrid heap of a situation.
