|Mayor Richard M. Daley denies being Grumpy|
In a breaking story Monday, Sun Times columnist Michael Sneed accused Mayor Daley of being Grumpy. She based this allegation on various law enforcement sources, informants, written reports, rats, and stool pigeons. As any Chicgoan will recall, the mayor has been accused of many things- even crimes over his two decade reign. He has beaten the rap every time.
Yesterday, Ms. Sneed received a call from the mayor’s press secretary, claiming the story was false. The mayor is not Grumpy. The mayor came on the phone and denied being Grumpy. Could this be a case of mistaken identity? (Story here)
It has happened before. In their zeal to pin something on someone, the media, cops, prosecutors, even victims, mistakenly pick the wrong guy. Even in line ups!
The Sun Times has unleashed several reporters to go out into the city and find Grumpy. Jody Weis put out an APB. Cops are searching furiously for Grumpy. Superintendent Jody Weis issued a statement. He will personally lead the
manhunt dwarfhunt. Officials in Anaheim are satisfied Rich Daley is not Grumpy.
The following picture of the Grumpy was released by authorities. (Dwarfs cannot be photographed)

Grumpy has been on the loose ever since he walked away from the Old Dwarfs Home in Anaheim.
Sneed can be forgiven for the mistaken identification, as there is an uncanny resemblance to the mayor- sans the beard. If Daley is not Grumpy, then who is he? Dopey, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy, or Doc?
