Chocolate Making Midgets Profiled at Broward Mall

Someone tell the Keebler elves before it's too late! From TMZ.com, that's a shot of the poor Oompa Loompa who was busted at the Broward Mall for promoting the performance of Jeff Beacher's Madhouse at the Coconut Creek Seminole casino.

Wonka's Oompa Loompas have been swarming the region -- Jose Lambiet at the Post caught one of the buggers today.

Beacher's home turf is the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, and one can imagine how stricken by grief and guilt he was upon learning that one of his employees was harassed by police, then humiliated on an international website, all in the pursuit of promoting Beacher's show. It would be gallant gesture for him to offer TMZ money to take the post down, yes? So let's check Beacher's website to see if there's at least some solemn announcement to the Oompa Loompa's family and friends.

Nope. Just this:

Our Beloved Oompa Loompa Donnie Davis was Busted in Florida while promoting this Saturday night's show at the Seminole Casino. Check it out on TMZ!
You're not in Vegas anymore, Mr. Loompa. And what happens in Plantation does not necessarily stay in Plantation.
