I once found a mouse in my beer....oh wait....I'm thinking of Strange Brew.

Oh well, I'm off to McDonalds to see if they have any Big N Tasty Gefilte Fish Balls!

Couple Sues Over Hot Pickle Burn

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - 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 for more than $100,000.

Veronica M. Martin claims in a lawsuit filed in Knox County Circuit Court that the burn also caused her physical and mental pain. She is seeking $110,000. Her husband, Darrin Martin, is seeking $15,000, because 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 (Veronica Martin),' according to the two-page lawsuit, which was reported in The Knoxville News-Sentinel on Saturday.

Representatives with Mar Inc., owner of the McDonald's franchise, did not return a telephone call from the newspaper.

The lawsuit says the Martins bought hamburgers at the McDonald's on Oct. 6, 1999. 'While attempting to eat the hamburger, the pickle dropped from the hamburger onto her chin,' the lawsuit reads. 'The pickle was extremely hot and burned the chin of (Mrs. Martin).'

In 1994, a New Mexico woman was awarded $2.7 million after suing McDonald's for burns she suffered when coffee she bought at a drive-through window spilled in her lap. A judge later lowered the award to just under $500,000.

I guess McD's is now supplying business to divorce lawyers, this is not the first marriage wrecked by some bad food... *sniff*

I wouldnt advise doing a web search for "hot pickle". Youd probably find something like that guys wedding.

ElwoodCuse Financial freedom? They want $15,000, and I think they stand a very good chance of at least getting their medical bills comped

Medical bills? He bit a farking bagel dude. What medical bills? Whenever I see stuff like this I wonder who these people are and how they think. Reading your comments I see you are one of these people. You think this is perfectly legitimate reason to sue. Because he HURT HIMSELF EATING A BAGEL!! Whatever. This guy should be taken out and shot.
2003-02-02 03:34:28 PM  

Yup, for some reason, I clicked on each and every image. I was so amazed at the size of the womans arm (wearing the blue pattern drapes), that I just had to see each and every freakish picture.

Excuse me, I'm now going to get something sharp and scratch my eyes out.
2003-02-02 03:34:37 PM  
"Deprived of the services"? Man, I wish I got lawsuit-worthy oral.
2003-02-02 03:35:27 PM  
testing 1.2..3
2003-02-02 03:36:56 PM  
7forty7-ask the bagel guy for something. He might have some really leathal pretzels hanging around.
2003-02-02 03:39:01 PM  
Feukulor You were right

7forty7- While the wedding photos you linked to are pretty weird by our standards, they're not "renaissance-style" pictures. The wedding is obviously (to a half-trained Classicist/Latin major) a recreation of a Roman-style wedding.

The yellowish-orange robes are typically attributed to Hymen, a Roman deity related to marriage. The photo descriptions also mention "libations" and Dionysos, which are dead give-aways that this is a Classical revival rather than a Renaissance one.

Wow. Makes me want to have a Roman-style wedding. Except that I'd rather not get married right now. Damn.
2003-02-02 03:40:02 PM  
I hate this shiat.
2003-02-02 03:40:30 PM  
Apparently, the pickle thing was about a McDonalds, not a Burger King as I thought. here is an article.

No where does it actually say that the man sued specifically for loss of blowjob priveledges, but what else does "loss of services" mean in this case? Kissing maybe?
2003-02-02 03:41:28 PM  
Check out the band photos section. Somehow it just screams homoerotica.
2003-02-02 03:41:38 PM  
OMG, somone actually found Pickle band?
Is it safe to assume that a new cliche is born?
2003-02-02 03:42:14 PM  
wheres the florida tag?
2003-02-02 03:42:40 PM  
I myself consider "hymen" a sought-after deity.
2003-02-02 03:43:59 PM  
Kill the lawyers. It's all we need to do.
2003-02-02 03:44:08 PM  
Bah, day late and a dollar short.
2003-02-02 03:44:14 PM  
Last one, I swear...

Check out the band photos section.
I did. All the "crowd shot" pages seem to be populated mostly by the band members' parents.
2003-02-02 03:45:50 PM  
Feukulor- I did too, once upon a time. But then I discovered that de-flowering virgins isn't quite all it's cracked up to be. Give me an older, more-experienced partner anyday.
2003-02-02 03:45:59 PM  
Looks like a Rastefarian Pee-Wee Herman.
2003-02-02 03:47:09 PM  
Iennifer- Words of wisdom.
2003-02-02 03:47:51 PM  
Thos photo's made you want to have a Roman-style wedding???

You can recite every last Monty Python scetch from memory, can't you.

2003-02-02 03:49:20 PM  
I'm glad i'm not the only one who browsed through the wedding photos. I was starting to feel like an outcast.
2003-02-02 03:50:02 PM  
Misery loves company, HOSTILE.
2003-02-02 03:51:12 PM  
Iennifer, thanks for the clarification; I knew I was probably being ignorant. But still, even if Bagel is recreating a legitamite wedding (from a strange and distant culture), couldnt he have at least wore some shoes, or sandles? There is no way he will be able to get into the Holliday Inn for his reception barefooted.

If anyone else has any insite regarding Bagels wedding, please share.
2003-02-02 03:52:21 PM  
Hostile, are you kidding? Those photos are fantastic! I cannot look away!
Okay, last one for real now...

I have heard about hummingbirds getting sealed up in soda cans.

If the bottling plants aren't maintained properly, hummingbirds can get in through openings in the buildings because they are drawn by the smell of the sugar syrup.
2003-02-02 03:52:38 PM  
The picture of "bagel" taking off the garter of the bride just burned holes on my eyeballs.

I'm getting married in June and if pictures of my wedding show up as bad as this on the internet, please shoot me.
2003-02-02 03:52:53 PM  
It is good to know that i'm not the only one whose life was ruined by a bagel.
2003-02-02 03:52:55 PM  
What the hell is on that dude in the yellow's nose?
2003-02-02 03:54:10 PM  
"It's a bagel," she said.

Did it go "beep ... beep ... beep ..."?
2003-02-02 03:54:36 PM  
Wonder if they'll show up in the courtroom like that?
2003-02-02 04:00:04 PM  
CanuckGuy- Not every last line. . . I can recite a few, and back in highschool I could sing the philosopher song (Eeeemanuel Kant was a real pissant, etc etc). The real reason is that I'm a Latin major and a hopeless geek.
2003-02-02 04:00:13 PM  
that damn bagel music has brought back a craving for sim city!
2003-02-02 04:00:17 PM  
What about pickles?
2003-02-02 04:02:32 PM  
Jeebus I hope the bagel dude is wearing three pairs of underwear beneath that short green dress. Especially in the pic where he is sitting in front of children.
2003-02-02 04:03:17 PM  
7forty7- he should probably be wearing some kind of sandals/boots. I don't know...perhaps he's just weird.

I wish you knew how hard I am laughing right now.
2003-02-02 04:05:20 PM  
CURSE YOU, MRPICKLES! Curse you to the very pits of hell and damnation themselves!

2003-02-02 04:05:43 PM  
Latin, eh? You could probably make a fair amount of money doing fake exorcisms. Not entirely illigitemate- sometimes the "possessed" are are cured through that very form of shock therapy.
2003-02-02 04:05:46 PM  
7forty7- It's nice to be appreciated.
2003-02-02 04:06:11 PM  
a bee in an unopened pop you say? craaaazy. Schmacky: Please post more, so i can relive all of the excitement and joy i experienced the first time viewing them. Thanks in advance.
