Mr. Announcement: "In the ghetto criminal justice system, the people are represented by two members of the McBride family: police officer and part-time security guard at the Funky Ghetto Mall Dudley 'Do-Right' McBride and attorney Cootie McBride of the law firm McBride, Myself and I. This is their story."

Dudley: "We got a call to investigate a possible disturbance. Scooby 'Angry Black Man' Rastus, Tipsy Lee the wino and a large group from the Ghetto Science Community are hanging out across the street from the Operation Corporate Backlash headquarters building."

(Cootie and Dudley drive to Operation Corporate Backlash headquarters in their Law 'n' Order SUV.)

Cootie: "Brother Scooby, I presume that you, Tipsy Lee and the Ghetto Science Community are exercising your First Amendment rights."

Scooby Rastus: "Yep, the right of the unemployed people to peaceably assemble."

Cootie: "And I presume that you all are demonstrating against corporations and businesses who are not hiring?"

Scooby Rastus: "That's right, brother lawyer."

Dudley: "I don't get it, Scooby."

Scooby Rastus: "The 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters inspired us to hang out at Operation Corporate Backlash. Also, the president's address to the Congressional Black Caucus motivated us to lounge around the corporate offices. We took off our bedroom slippers, put on our marching boots and are making a stand."

Dudley: "The crowd is growing larger. What should we do?"

Cootie: "Let the corporations see and experience what rising unemployment really looks like."

Scooby Rastus: "Amen, brothers. And doink, doink."
