When I was a little kid, an older kid said he would give me 20 dollars if I made a basket from 30ft.
After I drained it, he said that he said " doll hairs".
I am still scarred emotionally...
2002-04-02 02:19:45 PM  
I bet she's pissed because she also bought the picture of the PS2 on ebay last year.
2002-04-02 02:20:54 PM  
How can you be pissed with a cool, new toy Yoda?
2002-04-02 02:21:12 PM  
toy Yoda??

Who is she represented by, Harry P. Ness?

har har har....
2002-04-02 02:21:20 PM  
Or an X-Box box
2002-04-02 02:22:21 PM  
ididntdoit: The 'doll hairs' joke was the first thing I thought of too!

Berry sued for compensation, including interest, and attorney's fees. Her attorney has said that compensation would amount to the cost of a new Toyota automobile.

Ya...she isn't in it for the money or anything.

And I'm pretty sure that most people don't say Toyota Automobile when they are talking about winning a contest...
2002-04-02 02:22:55 PM  
utterly humorless ex-hooters waitress, likely to sue, seeks employment...

not likely.

Lionel Hutz Attorney at Law?
2002-04-02 02:23:22 PM  
Panama City. Oh yeah my hometown paper the ever so krappy news herald is on fark. That girl has to be one of the uglier chicks at that hooters. Last time I was in there there were alot better looking girls than her
2002-04-02 02:24:33 PM  
hmmmmmm.....i'm bored today. what am I gonna do? oh, yeah, I'm a red-blooded American, I'm gonna sue someone!
2002-04-02 02:24:50 PM  

Betcha Hooters would not be in so much trouble if the prize was a cool Boba- Fett toy. They ROCK !!!

She alleges that restaurant manager Jared Blair announced a contest last April Fool's Day in which the company would reward the waitress who sold the most beer that month with a "new Toyota automobile."

She has to be lying. Who says "new Toyota automobile"? Wouldn't they say something like, a new Toyota Tacoma?

Wing-slinging, beer-spilling biatch. I think I love her.
2002-04-02 02:25:21 PM  
My favorite is telling someone I'll give them a quarter for every dollar they can stand on edge (folding is ok b/c i want them to be successfull at it). I then take all the dollars they stood on edge and give them a quarter for each one.
2002-04-02 02:25:46 PM  
My thoughts are this...

boo hoo hoo...she fell for a childish prank. No physical harm was done, it didn't cost her any money. It was a about frivilous lawsuites.

So what, she didn't get a Toyota car, it is still a prize. Regardless on what she thought she was going to get. So her pride is hurt a little. She sold some beer, probably made a few decent tips on the way to winning the Toy Yoda. That is good enough. Besides, isn't it her job, per say, to sell beer to the customers? Should a company have to have a prize for selling the product that they are supposed to be selling in the first place. I say shut up and quit your wining...

Okay enough ranting for me.

LC out...
2002-04-02 02:26:16 PM  
Boot20:And I'm pretty sure that most people don't say Toyota Automobile when they are talking about winning a contest...

I'm sure before her lawyers rained her in she probably said the manager promised "a Toyota AUTOMOBILE, not a doll, but an AUTOMOBILE, a TOYOTA AVALON, with GOLD PLATING and $20,000,000 in the trunk!!!"

Dumb ho.
2002-04-02 02:26:29 PM  
Beat me to it Boot20...
2002-04-02 02:26:39 PM  
rained her in

2002-04-02 02:26:43 PM  
The ideal outcome of this case: She wins the case, gets a brand new Toyota, then gets in an accident so horrible (which, of course, would be her fault so she can't sue) that she's left physically unable to drive a car.

Boo ya!
2002-04-02 02:27:24 PM  
2002-04-02 02:28:16 PM  
It would be funny if the doll turned out to have some rare factory defect that made it worth millions of dollars to a collector but she gives it up for a lousy car instead.
2002-04-02 02:28:47 PM  
hahahaha it's "reined" Warmbeer.

2002-04-02 02:29:46 PM  
hahahaha it's "reined" Warmbeer.

Aw fark!!!

(...beating head on table...)
2002-04-02 02:29:59 PM  

reign=to rule a country

rein=used to control a horse (or figuratively a person)
2002-04-02 02:30:29 PM  
what the hell? how can people even think to side with the farkers at hooters for this bullshiat? they had a contest, she earned them shiatLOADS of money by selling beer for them and they reward her with a farking doll? fark that, she deserves to get what she was promised, a toyota. its not like she is in this suit for the money, she is only suing for the cost of a new car like she was promised by that assfarker of a boss. if she was in it for the money she would be suing for mental anguish and all that shiat. why dont you people start picking on the real jerk here, the boss and the corporation that screws its employees like that.
2002-04-02 02:30:41 PM  
So you people all side with the
Come work for me.
2002-04-02 02:30:56 PM  
She should totally get together with all the farkin' whiners who wanted to buy a 42" big screen TV from for $500 (real value $1500).
2002-04-02 02:32:01 PM  
That's funny. It's like lying and saying "I swear to Gaw" instead of "I swear to God" Because, you know what happens when you swear to God!!!
2002-04-02 02:34:01 PM  
"If expert testimony is involved, that could slow down the process as well"

Who they gonna call? George Lucas?
2002-04-02 02:34:18 PM  
If you read the article it is sad to see the shape of the American justice system.
2002-04-02 02:36:11 PM  
"If you read the article it is sad to see the shape of the American justice system."

I'd like to see the shape of her Hooter's in her Hooter's outfit, just in the interest of justice.
2002-04-02 02:37:11 PM  
WarmBeer - nice try, but it's not reigned, either. It's "reined" in, like a mule, or this chick.
2002-04-02 02:37:32 PM  
damnit.. beaten to the "doll hairs" comment....oh well....she DOESA look pissed...hate to be her boyfriend/husband....he's prolly NEVER going to hear the end of it.
2002-04-02 02:38:40 PM  
Hey, I'm sure we've all done waitress/waiter/table busser/fast food work.

That shiat can be irksome, tedious and sometimes degrading.

So she got a toy Yoda, did she seriously think the boss was going to buy her a new car out of his pocket?

Deal with it.

If she loses, she's going to be out legal fees and still look just as foolish......
2002-04-02 02:41:01 PM  
Why hasn't that wiseass manager
got the tar walloped out him yet.

Cel phone talkin, cologne squirtin,
gold chain wearin, corporate clown mutherfuker.
2002-04-02 02:45:49 PM  
The farce is strong with this one...
2002-04-02 02:46:00 PM  
the manager should countersue on grounds of her being a dumb ho, and win the yoda doll back.

God, she's never likely to get hired again now that frivalous lawsuit filing ass is pictured all over the country. I can't believe she's stupid enough to throw away her career like this.
2002-04-02 02:46:00 PM  
Sure, but if it's a shiaty job, and I work my ass off for something, and you pull shiat like this plus embarass me in front of my peers, you better bet your ass I'm going to pursue legal action.
2002-04-02 02:47:20 PM  
The original article from last year states that the manager said it was a "regional contest" between multiple Hooter's restaurants, and that the top 10 waitresses be in the contest. This gal won the raffle. She also claims that the manager said that whoever won would be responsible for TT&L. Hmmmmmmm...
2002-04-02 02:48:44 PM  
Who is her lawyer? Lionel Hutz?

Commissions only. No money down.

Oh wait... that should be:

Commissions only? No! Money Down! (and what's this pesky bar symbol doing in the ad)
2002-04-02 02:49:33 PM  
She's sitting there with the doll, doesn't that mean she accepted the prize?
2002-04-02 02:54:38 PM  
God, I will never ceased to be amazed the asshole saturation-level on these threads.

Hey dickweeds, being a waitress is hard work (or are you ready to go toe to toe with Harvey Keitel?) I'm sure everybody was under the impression that the employer was giving away a toyota, not a toy Yoda. Duh. If you make a promise, you're obligated to fufill that promise, word garbling crap aside. I hope she wins.
2002-04-02 02:54:52 PM  
I seem to remember the original article said that ALL the employees at the restaurant were under the impression it was a car, not just her. When you figure probably 50+ employees thinking this, it's no longer a joke.

If you think it's so funny, walk into a biker bar and offer 20 "doll hairs" to the person who could throw a bullseye on the dart board from 20' and then see if you can make it out the door when you give the winner 20 doll hairs.
2002-04-02 02:59:27 PM  
Nope, she's a dumbass.
Regardless of how hard it is to schlep drinks, she's still a dumbass. And she fell for it on April Fools day no less.

Yep, certified dumbass.
2002-04-02 02:59:44 PM  
In 20 years the Toy Yoda will be worth more than the Toyota.
2002-04-02 03:05:29 PM  
Why cant this manager go pull a 20 year old beater Toyota out of the 'hood somewhere and park it in her yard?
I guess the homeowners covenants might complain, but hey, who is going to kick a 'ho out of their project?
