Mickey Mouse and Elmo Are Stealing Our Jobs!

The Wall Street Journal profiled several the costumed characters in Times Square and reports the most shocking of news: Most of them are illegal aliens from Mexico and South America. That’s right, even Mickey Mouse is an undocumented immigrant. Elmo too. And that’s wrong!

Although they barely “eke out a living,” just think of all the hardworking Americans who would line up for the chance to mill about 42nd Street for hours on end while wearing a stuffy mascot head, and begging tourists for a dollar to take photos with them and their bratty kids.

As a commenter from the rightish paper notes, perhaps the NYPD could move in and arrest them using the same archaic law they’ve been charging mask-wearing protesters with. (Photo: ANIMALNewYork)
