Here at Pink Slipped, we know that when life hands you lemons, you slice those bad boys up, bust out the salt and start lining up the tequila shots. In the absence of such indulgences, you could always make lemonade, which is slightly less debaucherous but every bit as refreshing. With summer on the way and lemoney times abounding in general, it seems like now is the perfect time for Inc. magazine's 4th Annual Best Lemonade Stand in America Contest. Kids age 5 to 12 are eligible to enter starting June 18, but we mention it here anyway for you fine Pink Slipped folk because there's a decent chance that your child's humble nickle-a-glass street corner juice shop is the only income supporting your unemployment checks right now.
