October 14, 2011, 7:04 AMThe cleanup of the Lower Manhattan park that has been occupied by protesters for nearly a month was canceled Friday shortly before it was supposed to begin, averting a feared showdown between the police and demonstrators who had vowed to resist any efforts to evict them from their encampment.
The announcement was made by the Bloomberg administration around 6:20 a.m., about 40 minutes before workers were scheduled to enter Zuccotti Park, which has been the home base for the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators angered by what they see as an unfair and corrupt financial system.
“Late last night, we received notice from the owners of Zuccotti Park — Brookfield Properties — that they are postponing their scheduled cleaning of the park, and for the time being withdrawing their request from earlier in the week for police assistance during their cleaning operation,” Deputy Mayor Caswell F. Holloway said in a statement.

So, the Overly Wet Snuggies crowd decides to camp out and complain about the wicked corporations which manufactured the clothing they wore, the tents in which they slept, the cell phones and iPods and laptops and electronic games they used, processed and transported the food they ate and provided jobs for the parents who are still supporting them, and when the city decides that it will spend extra money to clean up the mess they’ve made, they want to stay there and continue to wallow in it.
Dudes and dudettes: the city is trying to help you here, trying to make your impromptu campground a little less of an open fetid and festering cesspool, and you want to complain about it? Grow the [insert vulgar slang term for sexual intercourse here] up!
Oh, wait: if they actually did GTFU, they’d get up, clean themselves up, and go out and find a job.
