It was a great idea, really. Take 1 million tea bags and dump them in Lafayette Park to protest government spending. Hip, hip, hoo-ray! But a funny thing happened en route to a visually pleasing Tax Day protest. The National Park Service said the tea party protesters didn’t have the proper permit to dump their bags. So instead of a raucous visual demonstration, all that was left was images of the tea party packing up their boxes of tea on a cold, soggy day in D.C. Doh! “We have a million tea bags here, and we don’t have a place to put them because it’s not on our permit,” said Rebecca Wales, lead organizer of D.C. Tea Party. Fight the power, folks, but next time check your permits before acquiring 1 million tea bags.
“Packing up their boxes of tea on a cold, soggy day in DC.” Bwah ha ha.
