No. 3: Vancouver riot kiss

A young couple chose to make love, not war, as riot police struggled to control the violence that erupted after the Vancouver Canucks lost game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals on June 15, 2011. When the image went viral on the Web, the kissing couple was identified as Scott Jones of Perth, Australia, and Alexandra Thomas, a recent graduate of the University of Guelph in Ontario. Jones later revealed that the couple had been knocked down by riot police and he was merely trying to calm down his girlfriend amid the chaos. (Photo by Rich Lam/Getty Images)
