fast food, prison rap?

Rapping is illegal now apparently…or at least it is in American Fork, Utah.

The AP is reporting that a Utah teen is facing trial for rapping a McDonald’s cheeseburger order.

OK, so some kids showed poor judgment by patronizing the fast “food” chain, but is it really necessary to prosecute them for expressing themselves (by parodying a McDonald’s commercial, no less)? Jeepers, what is this country coming to??

Sounds like the “American” Fork police and prosecutor are unfamiliar with the First Amendment. I guess the Unemployed Philosophers Guild was right. Crap like this is why I heart the ACLU.
