MADISON, Wis. (AP) — There has been plenty of weirdness in Wisconsin this year, and not all of it was inside the Capitol.

There was the werewolf sex case out of Milwaukee; the shirtless wanderer also in Milwaukee nicknamed the Milverine for his likeness to the Wolverine comic book character; and the Fond du Lac man who ate his 25,000th Big Mac.

The economy remained tough all over in 2011, even for little kids trying to run a lemonade stand. An Appleton police officer shut down the stand being run by a 10-year-old and 9-year-old sisters, telling the young entrepreneurs that their sales were prohibited by city ordinance.

Embarrassed by an avalanche of outrage after the story hit the news, police later apologized to the family and promised it would never happen again.

    I thought all cops were democrats and union members. He didn’t tell them their butts were too big like Senator Sensenbrenner said about Michelle Obama did he!The svelte silver tongued lawmaker from Hades Wisconsin! Another piece of trash who needs to be replaced! Recall,Feds, it don’t matter who,just do it SOON!

      Why do you think the cops wanted to shut the stand down? The reason is these girls were NON-UNION. Yeah I know you MN libs light a candle to Jesse every night. Dayton get 2 candles per lib, won’t be long until your state is classified as a third world country.

    Does your name refer to your brain stem or did your wife give it to you on your wedding night?

    Stay in Wisconsin, please. Your ignorance of the middle class and what created it is truly astounding. Go to your local library and check out “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair. That’s where your buddy Reichsfuhrer Walker wants to take you.

      You are making a big assumption…that stubby can read.

    Typical lib response from g dog and all over the board, instead of presenting their own arguments, they try to slam anyone who doesen’t agree with their twisted thinking. Nice job boys. Keep spending and taxing. Keep paying for someone elses pension and healthcare (state workers). Keep it up..instead of welcome to MN, replace the sign with Welcome to Little Cuba.
