The incredible ridiculousness and hilarity that stems from the #onlyinla hashtag on Instagram helps play an integral role here at Love & Loathing LA. I always refer to my weekly ‘Only In LA’ roundup as the “People of Walmart” of the city of Los Angeles. A lot of confusing and strange sh*t happens here, as you may have imagined, and it simply warms my heart that our collective community believes that “sharing is caring” as much as I do – especially when that sharing involves photographic proof of things unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed before. There’s something new to shake your head in disappointment over every single week, and this week as we’re nearing the end of 2014 I’d like to share with you my Top 5 Favorite “Only In LA” moments of 2014. Whether they make you laugh, feel sad, feel sorry, confused, etc., there’s no denying that any of these moments could only be made possible by the good people of Los Angeles:
