Last night New York City was embroiled in some bullshit, so here’s a little something to help improve the mood.

Apparently, the Seattle police are totally cool with consensual, mutual combat, because in the video below, some street idiot decides he wants to take on mild-mannered superhero Phoenix Jones.

(For those who don’t know, Phoenix Jones and his League of Costumed Dorks patrol Seattle to… well, I don’t know why they do it. And I don’t know why no supervillian just doesn’t disintegrate them or something.)

Jones, it seems, is well schooled in the art of Muay Thai, and after much hemming and hawing, the battle is underway.

Important note: if this had happened in New York, all combatants would be dead by the end of the video.
