Say it isn't so, Minnie. Say it isn't so.
Unfortunately, though, it IS so.
The entrepreneurial little mouse was a little bit TOO entrepreneurial and was arrested for battling a tourist over the size of a fee for a photo session.
Minnie refused to back down. "These tourists think we come cheap," she complained, continuing, "We're professionals, not just garden variety mice, for Pete's sake. We deserve to be paid accordingly."
Allowed one phone call, she called Mickey Mouse, her boyfriend of more than 85 years. He refused to accept the call, saying he didn't want to associate with a jailbird. At first Minnie seemed to accept the snub quite well. "It is what it is," she was heard to say. But a few hours later she referred to Mickey as a "slimy scumbag." Blimey!
Minnie has confided to friends that what annoys her most about jail is the prison garb. She hates stripes.
She much prefers polka dots and is contemplating a lawsuit requiring jails to provide an alternative to prison stripes.
