Rick Moranis was brought in for questioning by the FDA about his involvement in the current meat shortage affecting the nation. On May 3rd, a concerned neighbor called the California Sanitation Department about a rotting smell, swarms of flies, and vultures circling the property belonging to the actor. Sanitation workers were refused entry to the property and reported the suspicious activity to the local police department.
When the authorities arrived, Moranis was seen flushing ground sirloin down his toilet and made several comments about avoiding his back yard. When authorities entered the backside of the property, they discovered the actor was illegally building a 40ft tall meat robot.
In the state of California, residents are not permitted to build a meat robot standing above 11 feet and must get FDA approval if they are to exceed the 11 foot rule.
“We take Californian’s right to build meat robots very seriously. Without Mr. Moranis providing the required permit, we were forced to involve the FDA”. – Police Chief R. Manscott.
Rick Moranis is no stranger to the California meat laws. In the 80’s he was sentenced to one year of probation and community service for his involvement in a horticulture scandal which led to the disappearance of local dentist Orin Scrivello.
