A group of Occupy Wall Street protesters recently decided to torment New York Police Department officers tasked with keeping the unruly group out of Union Square in New York City. First, the Occupiers threw a doughnut on a string to the men in blue standing shoulder-to-shoulder, yanking the doughnut back only to toss it again. Later, dangling a doughnut on a makeshift fishing pole, the group yells in unison, "This is a piece of doughnut!" And then they shift to a variety of terrible doughnut-related tunes.
