Parapalegic Chihuahua

There's something that must be said about Willy, the parapalegic Chihuahua in the picture here:









I guess the folks are calling him "Wheely-Willy," which is cute/appropriate.

POLICE: MOM THREATENS CHUCK E. CHEESE



Tue Jun 29, 4:39 PM ET



MACON, Ga. - A teenager dressed as pizza mascot Chuck E. Cheese was pelted with pizza and threatened with a beating by an angry parent who said the mascot wasn't paying enough attention to her child, police said. Macon police reported that the 17-year-old female employee was dressed as the character, a gray cartoon-like rodent with large front teeth, when a 31-year-old Macon woman threw a piece of pizza at her Sunday afternoon.The report stated that the mother then threatened to "whip" the girl when she changed out of costume. No charges were filed in the incident, so the name of the mother and employee were not released by police.

Anyway, I think we all wanted to have our birthdays hosted at Chuck E. Cheese when we were younger, right? To tell you the truth, though, the mascots freaked me out.
