City of Minneapolis Pays $165k Settlement To Zombies
Minneapolis' city attorney's office has agreed to pay a $165,000 settlement to seven people who dressed up as zombies to protest consumerism in 2006. Police had arrested the protesters for what they thought appeared to be a "weapon of mass destruction," but hilariously was actually an iPod and some equipment to amplify this terrorist mp3 player. They were never charged and were later released to continue annoying the terrorism-hating Minnesota public with their disdain for the sale of fishing lures.
So how do anti-consumerists spend $165,000? We all need to eat healthy, and free-range organic human brains aren't cheap.
