Occupy Sopchoppy Fails to Take Hold

Sopchoppy, FL -- Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York and similar demonstrations across the country, Occupy Sopchoppy made a pretty half-assed attempt to take over Sopchoppy's financial district. The ragged group of listless protesters disbanded only a few hours after forming.

The movement, comprised of residents Bill, Edna and Mike, floundered when occupiers remembered that Sopchoppy doesn't have a financial district, inside sources Bill, Edna and Mike revealed. Changing tack, the demonstrators marched over to Sopchoppy City Hall on Municipal Avenue.

"Well, they came complaining about how poor they were and how it was our fault because we were rich," said Mayor Colleen Q. Skipper. "I reminded them that we're all poor and that pretty much was that."

Afterwards, Occupy Sopchoppy members walked over to Backwoods Bistro and ordered a few burgers.

"I'd say we accomplished about as much as Occupy Wall Street has," said Occupy Sopchoppy spokesperson Edna.
