Elections can be long and dreary affairs, so it's no surprise that some politicians and journalists on the campaign trail are taking the time to lighten the mood amidst door-knocking and policy announcements.

The Canadian Press has documented numerous funny moments using Instagram, taking colourful photos of campaigners such as Premier Christy Clark and NDP Leader Adrian Dix as they pound the pavement around the province.

The Huffington Post B.C. took a number of those photos and tried to extrapolate what people in the pictures might be thinking. Not being psychics, we cannot verify the veracity of these thoughts.

Check out some humourous moments from the B.C. campaign trail.
