A young Andrew Ryan

What is a man!? ... Wait. That's not right either.

I imagine Andrew Ryan having the same experience as this girl did when he was just a boy:

Portland lemonade stand runs into health inspectors, needs $120 license to operate

… So when Multnomah County shut down an enterprise last week for operating without a license, you might just sigh and say, there they go again.  Except this entrepreneur was a 7-year-old named Julie Murphy. Her business was a lemonade stand at the monthly art fair in Northeast Portland. The government regulation she violated? Failing to get a $120 temporary restaurant license.  Turns out that kids’ lemonade stands — those constants of summertime — are supposed to get a permit in Oregon, particularly at big events that happen to be patrolled regularly by county health inspectors.

To which he would respond:

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow from selling lemonade when it is really hot outside?  I’ll show them! Let’s see those parasites come and shut me down at the bottom of the ocean.

The result:

And he was sore about it ever since.
