She Was in a Pickle, and a Pickle Lead Her to Salvation

We could all use a laugh, so pulled straight from the AGL file, here is your 'that's the news that was' news tidbit of the day. This little gem came over the AP wire some years ago. Judging from some of the past comments I've received, I reiterate -- everything I print is true -- accurate, well, it was in a newspaper somewhere...so you decide...

A woman who claims she was permanently scarred after a hot pickle from a McDonald's hamburger fell on her chin is suing the restaurant. Dashaloo Desmond* claims in a lawsuit that the burn also caused her physical and mental pain and is seeking damages. Her husband, Dingobat Ditty, is ALSO (caps mine) seeking damages because, as he puts it, he "has been deprived of the services and consortium of his wife."**

The hamburger "was in a defective condition or unreasonably dangerous to the general consumer and in particular to Ms. Desmond," according to the two-page lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, she is permanently scarred, with second degree burns.

There are almost no words.
*Did you think these were their real names?
**eeuuwwww...
You parents had better drag your kids out of Macs right now before more bodily harm is inflicted.

I want to know whether the lawsuit ever made it to trial or whether the judge threw it out as frivolous - which it was!

I want to say something witty about this but I just can't. The crap that happens within our judicial system never ceases to utterly amaze me.
