From You're a Disgrace:
What was supposed to be a financial windfall for a small senior center in Queens has now become a giant headache for the staff and members. Last week, 4,000 lbs. of ground pork was delivered to the Sunnyvale Senior Center instead of the $4000 the center was supposed to receive as part of Councilman Leroy Comrie's discretionary funding allocation from the New York City Council.
In what is being chalked up to a clerical error, someone in Comrie's office changed the "$" sign to a "lb." sign, and now the seniors are sitting on a mountain of ground meat.
"I guess there was so much talk of "pork" during the funding process that a new staff member took it literally," said Janet Rucker, Sunnyvale's Director.
