Sixty-year old man convicted of groping Minnie Mouse at Disney World. John William Moyer of Cressona, Pennsylvania maintained his innocence but was still convicted for misdemeanor battery and sentenced to “write the victim an apology, serve 180 days probation and complete 50 hours of community service. Moyer must also pay $1,000 in court costs and possibly undergo a mental evaluation” after he allegedly groped a woman in a Minnie Mouse costume. Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time, but in this case, you have to wonder about Minnie’s role in this affair. You do know why Mickey left Minnie, don’t you? Because she was fucking goofy. Or Goofy. Well, both, actually. [AOL News]
