"Occupy Wall Street kitchen staff protesting fixing food for freeloaders"
Now, the Crew must admit to being a little befuddled by this banner. After all, isn't this like (reader beware- analogy ahead!) "Street whores protesting sex with strangers" or even "Liberals protest confiscating money from productive citizens!". Hellooooo OWS kitchen staff- fixing food for freeloaders is your raison d'etre is it not?
Now, digging a little deeper into the article (available here), one discovers that the OWS cooks have been preparing "high end" meals for the protesters such as organic chicken, spaghetti bolognese, and sheeps milk-cheese salad. Such high-falutin fare has attracted area homeless people that the OWS protesters find to be objectionable. The cooks refused to provide any meals for 2 hours yesterday, and plan to just serve rice and other basics for the next 3 days.
OWS protesters said the "high-end" meals would be discontinued permanently if "the vagrants and criminals don't disperse". The article quotes kitchen volunteer Rafael Moreno as saying "we need to limit the amount of food we're putting out" in order to curb the influx of derelicts. Also quoted in the article is a security volunteer who said the cooks feel "overworked and underappreciated". Huh, not much fun to work hard supporting those that don't, is it? Welcome to the world of Sahib and the Crew.
Now, I don't claim to be Nostradamus, but here's my prediction. If all the vagrants, criminals, and derelicts disperse from the OWS protest.....There will be no one left to feed!
SACSTW quiz time: can you distinguish the derelict from the hardworking OWS protester in these photos?

Late-Breaking Update to this Story: The OWS protest against the accumulation of vagrants and derelicts is now under investigation by the Ministry of Delicious Irony. A full MDI report is expected soon.
