Protestors enjoy the taste of asphalt at "Eat the Street" rally
The financial collapse of 2008 led many Americans down a long, inedible road of worry, which has now culminated in massive daily protests centered around Wall Street. Over the past several weeks, lower Manhattans Zucotti Park has become a bit more returned to nature as protestors have taken to eating large chunks of pavement within the park to show their dissatisfaction with bankers, hedge fund managers and other associated dickholes that dominate Wall Street.
In a symbolic move to "eat The Street," protestors are striving to achieve awareness of an ever-increasing global liquidity problem by putting cement rocks in their mouths, chewing them up and swallowing them, hoping that before they are killed by stomach and bowel problems, such bizarre behavior will get the attention of congress, and perhaps some sort of weird entry into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Radiohead has also confirmed they will be giving a special "surprise" performance at the park later this afternoon. (<--this last sentence is actually true)*
*edit -- this is actually not true, but it was until an hour ago
