Occupy Toledo hold mock funeral: foxtoledo.com

Occupy Toledo held a mock funeral as part of an April Fool's Day prank on Sunday:

Occupy Toledo members held a funeral Sunday afternoon saying that their stand against corporate greed, has died. They said the movement died of apathy; but not without a coy grin and several reminders that it was, in fact, April Fool's Day.

"It is the death of occupy-after all, it is April Fools and it is the death of occupy, so I'm here to sign the death certificate to be officially gone and dead occupy," Dr Jonathon Ross said.

"The peace of Chrysler be with you." Ed Heilman, dressed up as a man of God said.

"And also with you," the crowd emphatically responded.

And may the force be with you all.
