Look Bart Hansen. You may like to pretend you’re hard core, what with your Rage Against the Machine lyrics listed as your favorite quotation on your Facebook page.

(Although, they are: “It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime. What better place than here? What better time than now?” Which sounds downright ‘inspirational poster’ when taken out of context.)

But we’re sorry. Us meeting mavens can’t help but call you “Boy Scout Bart” around the office.

You’re a city councilor. You have a picture-perfect family, complete with wife, two kids (boy and girl) and a golden retriever. You wear khakis. You willingly use public transportation.

You weren’t actually a Boy Scout, but pictures like this from last night’s Vancouver City Council open house aren’t helping your case.

Hey, at least your nickname isn’t “Big Stu.”
