First some of the anti-capitalists at Occupy Wall Street got dollar signs in their eyes when the money started rolling in. Then the people who want government to take from the rich by force and give to them started complaining that people were stealing from them.
Now the kitchen staff volunteering for the movement dedicated to getting free stuff from the upper one percent is sick and tired of freeloaders:
The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.
Aw, people are taking advantage of something they’ve worked hard for? Now who would do such a thing?
Even more interesting, it would appear that OWS is not only against the upper one percent, but the lower one percent as well. They’ll have to change those signs to “We are the 98%.”
In the end, OWS will be crushed under the weight of its own irony.
Update: Another one to throw on the pile: Occupy Portland files for incorporation.
