Police shut down these little girls' lemonade stand, because joy is illegal

Who would call the cops on a pair of little girls? Who?

ANDRIA AND ZOEY Green are not even 10 years old – and they’ve already had their first run in with the police.

The sisters from Overton, Texas had set up a lemonade stand outside their house in the hopes of raising money for their dad’s Father’s Day present. Sweet, no?

It was all going very well – until the police showed up and shut them down. Er, what?

According to USA Today, the two girls had broken a Texas law that says you can’t sell certain foods without a health permit.

Seven-year-old Andria, now a hardened criminal, said:

I’m a little confused. We were doing just fine until the cops came. They shut us down.

“This was such an innocent endeavour that turned into all kinds of government red tape,” said a neighbour.

“It is upsetting, especially since I saw how hard the girls were working out in the heat.”

The sisters figured out a way to get around the police, though – by handing out the lemonade for free. Kudos, girls. A life of crime awaits you.
