#1) How are PA syatems still accessible to customers?

#2) These kids actually believe they are being funny. Where are their parents?

If they said "All morons leave the store" or "All Jackasses leave the store" it would be funny. But it also would not be a story and they would not be facing charges.

If they were looking to entertain themselves the kids could come up with something that is truly hilarious to say.

#1) I think they grab the PA mic from the courtesy counter.

#2) Don't know, obviously not looking at what the kids are doing.

I agree. I'm sure black customers did not find this funny. It wasn't that long ago when they were fighting for basic civil rights and this type of nonsense just stirs up old wounds.

Well, I do not think the kids are thinking about Selma when they grab the microphones but they should know better.

lol....i'd love to see that reaction too! I'd laugh and keep pushing my cart around instead of looking for the nearest Yellow Pages to dial up one of the 3,487 attorney's that would love to get rich off someones poorly-judged joke.

It's not nice, but it's not the end of the world! Lighten up!

Good point Aero. Litigious Lawyers in Edgewater NJ Im sure I watching this carefully; hoping a black person in the store was offended enough to sue Whole Foods.
