From the article:

"Sean Rooney, spokesman for Jolly Dwarf, the N.J.-based company that manages Beetlejuice, says he and colleague Domenic Lucci (a.k.a. Big Pappa) like their jobs, especially with perks like limo rides and posing for photos with models. He also insists dwarves never get hurt, even when they're wrestling or hitting bowling pins head-first with a helmet on. "It's not demeaning to them. What else would they be doing? Stocking the bottom shelves at ShopRite?"

Half to admire the gall...

"It's not demeaning to them. What else would they be doing? Stocking the bottom shelves at ShopRite?"

oh god, best quote ever.

Okay, honestly, if I could get payed 2,500 dollars for partying for 2 hours, and people would treat me like a celebrity... ummmmm ?
Add to that posing with models and being conveniently crotch-height....

why are people upset about this? Are they jealous?

For some reason, this article reminds me of the South Park episode with the underwear gnomes.
