New Yorkers in Marie Antoinette costumes throw Let Them Eat Cake protest at mayor's mansion

Cries of "Let them eat cake!" rang out Sunday evening at the @OccupyGracie event outside of New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's Gracie Mansion.

While we rallied outside, New York City's exceedingly out of touch Mayor for the 1% was hosting an intimate dinner party for Senators and corporate executives to urge the SuperCommittee to "go big" and cut $4 trillion in federal spending.

But these peasants did not want cake. They want jobs. The stunt was organized by a group calling itself The Jobs Party. More on the event here. Photos courtesy of Jobs Party. (via Molly Crabapple)
