It's hard to run a lemonade stand these days, what with all the red tape.

(via ABC News)

Zoey and Andria Green, the 7- and 8-year-old owners and operators of the "Green Girls" Lemonade Stand, had an impressive business plan. They bundled their products so if customers bought both their lemonade (normally 50 cents) and their kettle corn (normally $1.00), it was "a dollar." They had flashy marketing materials in the form of a bright yellow three-panel sign with lots of exclamation points. And they had ambitious sales goals ("We were trying to raise some money so we could take our dad to Splash Kingdom"). And there these sisters were, just minding their own business, leaning in, when the cops shut down their lemonade stand.
