No Lemonade Stands Allowed

Kids selling lemonade on a street corner is a classic American icon, but according to Georgia State Police, it's actually against the law. Cops recently busted two tweens for selling without a business permit and a food vendor's license. According to the police chief, the city won't be backing down soon:
"We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance."

Who knew lemonade could be so dangerous to the public health?

Oh, c'mon. Lemonade stands run by little kids are the stuff of comics and nostalgia, not real life. Anyone trying it is playing at it, as is appropriate for children. They could just pretend sell imaginary lemonade, be just as happy. Making the actual sales of lemonade will not affect anything significant.

No one in their right mind would actually buy and drink whatever was mixed up by sweaty little kids they don't know.

Actually hector, I had to get a business license to operate as a freelance writer for neatorama. I'm pretty sure Alex had to get a license to run the site and the shop too.
