Defendant: Various students, Parson’s School of Design.
Count 1: Misdemeanor spelling.
Count 2: Misdemeanor spelling.
Count 3: Exposing every single restaurant patron in New York City to grammatical mischief.
Report: Officer was waiting for cheap sushi when the infraction was spotted on the ubiquitous New York City CHOKING VICTIM poster. Since being signed into law by Mayor Ed “How’m I doin’?” Koch in 1978, Local Law 43 has required the distribution of said poster with every restaurant license. The Fish & Lemon design was created by a coterie of Parsons students in 1997 with heavy emphasis on design and less on proofreading.
Fine: $1 per restaurant.
