And the little girl laughed, and laughed, and laughed...

Old hippie vs. new hippie: this is hilarious on so many levels:

From his second-floor apartment at the counterculture crossing of Haight and Ashbury streets, Arthur Evans watches a new generation of wayward youth invade his free-spirited neighborhood.

The former flower child was among the legions of idealistic wanderers who migrated here during the Vietnam War to "tune in, turn on and drop out."

But Evans, who has lived at the same address for 34 years, says he has never seen anything like this crowd, who use his flower bed as a bathroom and sell pot outside his window.

Of course he's never seen anything like this crowd. Denial is a river running through Hippie Heaven. Looks like the SS What Goes Around Comes Around just docked. All aboard!

And the irony is, those ancient idiot hippies haven't figured out that they are the role models for this "new generation of wayward youth".

... wait, he's never seen people selling pot at Haight and Ashbury?

Christ, I was there (the one and only time, thank god) like 13 years ago, and at least two people tried to sell me various drugs.

I bet old hippies peed on his flowers, too.

Of course he'd seen it all before. He was just too stoned to notice.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
