I wonder where she takes her drycleaning??!!

(O.K....links are working for me today!)


Macomb briefs



A Romeo woman is suing the manufacturer of Starburst Fruit Chews in Macomb County Circuit Court for "severe and permanent personal injuries" she received while eating the candy. The attorney for Victoria McArthur filed the lawsuit Monday against New Jersey-based Master Foods USA asking for more than $25,000. She alleges that when she bit into a yellow Starburst fruit chew in April 2005, she began to feel pain in her jaw, and then began having difficulty opening her mouth. A court date has not been set.

She is suing the manufacturer because she doesn't know how to eat? LOL

Who knew that fruit chews were chewy....

Gee, I should sure the company that makes Jawbreakers, because years ago, I bit one, cracked my tooth, which immediately needed a root canal, which after several years needed pulling, which needed a bridge.

I also broke my retainer in high school, doing the same thing, but the lawyers don't need to know that, do they?

Oooh - I had forgotten about my cracked tooth incident while eating some of my son's candy. Maybe I should sue since I had to have a crown put on.

That's why it was sooooo good to hear that the guy suing the dry cleaners for losing his pants didn't get anything. In fact, he had to pay their court costs.

All frivolous lawsuits should be treated this way. Then maybe they would stop wasting the court's time.
