There are some truly hilarious stories today (both from Associated Press).
I couldn't decide between this one below and the story about the lady calling 911 because McDonald's ran out of the famous nuggets after she paid and wouldn't refund her money. Her quote: "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn’t have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don’t want one. This is an emergency."
Man fined for Chuck E. Cheese mascot assault
Father ripped off head piece thinking mascot had pinned his son
NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - A Massachusetts man has been fined $500 for assaulting a Chuck E. Cheese mouse.
Authorities say 34-year-old Trahan Pires thought the perpetually happy mascot had pinned his 11-year-old son against a video game after the boy said "Chuck" had picked him up by the arms and cornered him by a console.
Pires, of Fairhaven, ripped off the mascot's head piece, pointed a finger at the man inside and yelled at him.
The 19-year-old man in the mouse suit told police he put his arms out to get through a crowd of children trying to knock him over and never grabbed anyone. A witness agreed with that account, adding that the mascot only bumped into the boy accidentally while turning around.
Pires pleaded guilty Monday. A judge fined him after rejecting the prosecution's request for a six-month jail sentence.
Pires' family was at the children's restaurant in Dartmouth in May to celebrate his son's birthday.
