YOU are responsible to educate yourself in what you partake in. can i get an amen????????

Wonder if I can sue LIPTONS for the fact my tea cups are stained??!!! LOL
I think you could sue liptons if your teeth were stained, sue victorias secret because you suffered severe discomfort with that thong up your crack,
Thanks for the laughs.

One is a law professor at some college. These lawyers are all riding high based on the millions of dollars they received for their litagation in the tobacco suit and see this as another avenue to make tons of money.
I imagine alcohol will be next then....?
Our justice system has lost common sense - look at all the frivilous lawsuits and stupid labeling they have to add to equipment secondary to lawsuits. One man sued and won because he tried using his lawn mower to trim his hedges - needless to say he dropped the lawn mower and amputated his foot. He sued because the lawn mower didn't have a warning to not lift it up to trim hedges. Give me a break!

I'm now in the McDonald's witness protection program to prevent a future attack...

Not her fault she didn't have the foresight to carry an umbrella. How could that fat guy have the foresight into years and years of fried food and empty calories causing weight gain? Duh!

Maybe he should try to be held hostage by Subway next so he could try the "Jared" diet and lose a few pounds :chuckle

And he must be stupid, very stupid. I think anyone bringing frivolous suit like this should be similarly stripped. lots less idiots either clogging the courts with this innane silliness or less idiots at the polls and on our roads. Either way, it could be a "good thing" like our "Good friend" Martha Stewart is so fond of saying.
