Pro-Business Types Respond to #OccupyWallStreet by Organizing "Anti-Hippie Protester Champagne Toast"

The "Occupy Wall Street" protests: thousands of taxpayers demanding accountability from greedy corporations, ora bunch of loathsome, dirty hippies crowding the sidewalk? You know where we stand on the matter, but some pro-Wall Street types apparently disagree, and they've organized a rather absurd sounding counter-protest to make sure all the dirty hippies know it.

Via Gawker, we find the Facebook invite for the "Anti-Hippy [sic] Protester Champagne Toast on Wall Street":

Let's toast to all the jobless hippies protesting on wall street and the enitre financial distric about god knows what. They have shown vallient effort and even though we hate them lets give them a free shower! (they havent showered in weeks) So... Tomorrow at 4pm we will be having a byob champagne toast/shower to welcome all the protesters and bathe them in good riddence.

[Sic, sic, sic, sic.]

More, from an events-page comment written by the organizer:

These guys are so pathetic and it was awesome watching them get dragged around and whooped by cops. Hey dumb non tax paying hippies.. You are costing people who actually have jobs more money by making 400 extra police occupy lower manhattan for two weeks ... Can't wait to see you Guys tomorrow - I'll be the guy handing out hippie muffins for free with laxatives baked in so after you shit yourselves uncontrollably we will spray you with champagne like we won a championship game. Only if you haven't been arrested for being a duche before that."

So #OccupyWallStreet protesters, beware of the grammatically-challenged guy handing out laxative-laced muffins and swilling champers today!
