That smoke looks like the smoke that comes out of Bloomberg's ass.

A note to everyone (especially Alexander Stein) - while the 1st smoke filled photo is good...

IF YOU EVER SEE SMOKE LIKE THIS COMING OUT OF A MANHOLE, GET AWAY FROM IT IMMEDIATELY. Do not stand around an take photos.

A huge explosion can ruin your whole day, no matter how good the photo is.

IF YOU EVER SEE KING KENNY LIKE THIS, WITH A STARBUCKS CUP FULL OF VODKA, GET AWAY FROM HIM IMMEDIATELY. Do not stand around and take photos.

A huge schizophrenic explosion can ruin your whole day, no matter how good the photo is.
