N.C. man arrested for displaying 'cheeseburger' sign

A North Carolina man was arrested after he displayed a sign that read "I'm thinking of a cheeseburger" on the side of a road, according to this report:

Michael Francis McLaughlin, 48, held the cardboard sign on the 500 block of Cox Road near I-85 Friday evening, Gastonia Police Officer J.K. Sarratt wrote on a misdemeanor criminal citation.
Gastonia City Ordinance 5-17 makes it unlawful for anyone to beg or offer to work for money or other compensation by “accosting one another or forcing oneself upon the company of another.”
