In Orlando, Charity Can Be a Crime


A 21-year-old Floridian was arrested in Orlando for feeding a group of 30 homeless people. It is illegal in Orlando to feed more than 25 destitute people without a permit, which can be obtained only twice a year. As if to drive home the absurdity of the law, authorities took a sample of Eric Montanez’s illegal stew for evidence.

More at the link.

Quote:
Disney should start feeding the homeless in Orlando; or is Mickey Mouse just a greedy rodent.

Mouse or Multinational?

“The Walt Disney Company is a host of contradictions, contradictions which are embodied in almost all of its projects. Starting with Mickey Mouse and working down from there, it seems to always be operating with at least two purposes. Walt Disney, a man of contradictions himself, claimed that Mickey, the company’s now ubiquitous corporate symbol, was a “very clean mouse”, the complete contradiction of what a mouse really is anyplace but in Disney World.”

Post states Site cannot be found. Disney's that quick at censoring? Poor Spocko.

Let's rename him- "Mickey Rodent Pellets". Shades of the hantavirus and all that spoiled grain! How many rodent pellets are allowed in a chocolate bar?

Ms DO.g's sez 16!

More likely to eat it themselves, under the guise of "gathering evidence." :roll:
