If it doesn’t happen to you it’s funny

This didn’t happen to me….

One squirrel got a fiery surprise when it apparently got curious about a chimney. The squirrel fell down a chimney at a Two Rivers home and landed in a fire in a fireplace Monday night, said Two Rivers Assistant Fire Chief Gary Shavlik.

The squirrel escaped the fire and ran around the house, Shavlik said.

Firefighters later caught it and called Wildlife of Wisconsin, an agency that helps wild animals. The squirrel suffered from bloody paws.

There was no fire damage and the squirrel is alive, Shavlik said.

A valuable lesson learned by the squirrel I think.

It’s official; there’s too many lawyers

Suing for this?

Wholly guacamole?

That’s the issue in a fraud lawsuit filed Wednesday against Kraft Foods, Inc., by a Los Angeles woman who claims the company’s avocado dip doesn’t qualify as guacamole.

“It just didn’t taste avocadoey,” said Brenda Lifsey, who used Kraft Dips Guacamole in a three-layer dip last year. “I looked at the ingredients and found there was almost no avocado in it.”

She is seeking unspecified damages and a Superior Court order barring Kraft from calling its dip guacamole. Her suit seeks class-action status.

I think it’s funny that this woman decided to sue instead of, say, going to the market and spending a buck on an avacado or two. Heck, in L.A. she could probably find one on a tree somewhere.

The fact she thought “sue” first tells me two things; First, Brenda is a lazy, money grubbing individual who’s trying to bilk the system. Second, that a ridiculous complaint like this could garner anything more than laughter illuminates the fact that we have reached a saturation point in the legal market.

This story makes me think that the “loser pays” lawsuit model needs to be implemented nationwide.
