  • Don't mess with Texas!

    lemonade.jpeg


    Last week, police in Texas heroically saved the town from likes of two young girls who attempted to open a black market lemonade stand. The girls, one 7-year-old and one 8-year-old, dared to try to raise money to buy a Father’s day present for their dad by setting up a lemonade stand in their neighborhood.

    Andria and Zoey Green told ABC affiliate KLTV they were trying to raise about $100 for a Father’s Day present. They wanted to take him to Splash Kingdom.

    But on the bright side...

    The heartening side to this story is that these young girls are now learning to bypass this tyrannical system of bureaucratic nonsense. The girls said they will be setting up their lemonade stand again this weekend. Instead of selling it though, they will be giving it away, but they will gladly be accepting donations.

    In the meantime, I'm still waiting for a banker, any executive banker from HSBC that laundered money for Mexican cartels and terrorists to be sentenced a day in jail.

      When I see kids selling lemonade (There are usually some down the street from my Church in the Summer) I always try to stop and buy some just because - even if I'm not thirsty.

          Just for the record, I want the gnats strained out of my lemonade.

          Or better, that they never be there in the first place.

              Absolutely disgusting. Hopefully these girls will get the death penalty.

                To paraphrase Hanover Fiste from the movie Heavy Metal:
                They're nothing but a low-down, double-dealing, backstabbing, larcenous perverted worms! Hanging's too good for them. Burning's too good for them! They should be torn into little bitsy pieces and buried alive!

                  Dear Green Girls,

                  Some sarcasm impaired idiot will probably forward this thread to your parents. Ignore it - we're rooting for you.

                  Hope your fundraising goes great!

                  Regards,

                  -T and the rest of the nuts in this thread.
