I stand corrected. When I read the article at first, I thought it was James Carville who had glued himself to a counter. Turns out, it is James Cromwell. Either way, it's funny as hell. Thanks to the commenters for straightening it out.
James Cromwell took a dramatic stand for PETA Tuesday morning by supergluing his hand to a Starbucks counter in protest of the coffee chain’s up-charge for vegan milks.
If I were the manager, I would have let him stand there, glued to the counter. I would have invited the assembled patrons to mock hi. Maybe take his belt off and let his pants fall to his knees. At any time, he could have ripped skin to leave.
Doing something stupid deserves mockery.
