No Tickie, No Dumpie – 1 Million Teabags Wasted Due to Lack of Permit

Many thanks to Bob Cesca’s Awesome Blog! Go! for this heads up.

Tea bag protesters intended on dumping one million tea bags in Lafayette Park, DC.  Unfortunately for them, they forgot the permit.

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.
