Boy advertises ‘Ice Cold Beer’ at root beer stand

The Daily Journal

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah boy has earned widespread social media attention for his neighborhood soda stand thanks to a sign he holds that reads, “Ice Cold Beer” with “root” above the word beer in tiny print.

Several residents in the northern Utah city called police earlier this week concerned about a young boy selling alcohol in front of a church, said Brigham City Police Lt. Tony Ferderber on Thursday.

Officers that went to check it out realized that it was just a clever marketing ploy and posted pictures of 11-year-old Seth Parker on Facebook with the comment, “a twist on a lemonade stand.”

Sen. Mitt Romney, of Utah, tweeted a picture of Seth with the comment, “A lesson in reading the fine print! The future is bright for this young Utah entrepreneur.”

Seth’s mother Alexis Parker said Thursday that the family is dumbfounded and excited by all the attention. She estimated that some 60 people a day come to the stand.

Seth started the stand because his parents urged him to get out more after they noticed he had struggled to make new friends since the family moved from Georgia last year, Alexis Parker said.

Seth thought about a yard sale or lemonade stand but settled on selling the soda because he is a root beer “fanatic,” she said. He chose the sign with the tiny print as a little “wise crack.”

The first day brought some scoffs and scowls, especially for people without good vision, she said.

But people soon caught on to the joke.

“We’re loving people stopping by and just having a good laugh,” said Alexis Parker. “It is a joy all the way around.”

    Much as I hate to agree with a politician, he’s right.

    Stupid, brainwashed ADULT sheeple FAILED to investigate closer (those who called the pigs).

    That aside, here’s an interesting tidbit (not that I’m the least surprised… I believe Yahoo & Chump aren’t going ANYWHERE till they get this inevitable war going)

    No Illegal articles up, so this’ll have to do…

    “MCALLEN, Texas – A group of 47 migrants violently rushed an international port of entry near McAllen, Texas, and assaulted officers in an attempt to illegally enter the country.”

    FORTY SEVEN?

    AND HOW MANY ‘AGENTS’ DO WE HAVE DOWN THERE?????

    Gotta love Breitbart… if for nothing more than their blatant FEARMONGERING.
