Two “Seriously Pissed-Off Grannies,” Bonnie Tinker and Sarah Graham (pictured above), were a little less pissed this morning when their case was dismissed. The Grannies were originally arrested for “interfering with a parade,”after they allegedly jumped in front of a tank during the 2007 Grand Floral Parade, but since no such charge exists, authorities charged the blue-haired ladies with “disorderly conduct” and “blocking traffic in a public road.” Stu Sugarman, Tinker's attorney, says “the state was not prepared for trial”; they apparently "screwed up the subpoenas."
"I guess they had a computer glitch," Graham said smiling.
Tinker and Graham would not elaborate on their 2007 protest because, as Bonnie said, “they can still decide to recharge us,” but they did say they were against the WWII tank's presence in the Grand Floral Parade because “tanks are weapons of mass destruction,” and the giggling Grannies were tired of the “militarization” displayed by the parade over the last few years.
