Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Families Sue Universal Studios Over Character Who Flashed “Okay” in Photos
Two families are suing Universal Studios in Orlando after a character at the theme parked flashed an alleged white power sign in photos with their daughters.
The “white power” signal in question is the “OK ” hand gesture— making a circle with the thumb and index finger.
Although this has long been understood to mean OK for roughly TWO CENTURIES (because the gesture approximates the letters ‘O’ and ‘K’), the lawsuit claims that it is “a universally-known and universally-used hate symbol that indicates white power.”
One family, which wants $30,000 for “mental anguish” and “loss of dignity”, told their daughter that she couldn’t show her friends the photo because “a man did a bad thing to her because he did not like her because of her race and color.”
Even more ridiculous, the employee who flashed the OK sign was FIRED for doing so.
