The winner of this years Stella award

pete41(9ab FL.)May 23, 2007

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Mr. Grazinski purchased a brand new 32-foot Winnebago motor home. On his first trip home, having driven onto the freeway, he set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the drivers seat to go into the back and make himself a cup of coffee. Not surprisingly, the R.V. left the freeway, crashed and overturned. Mr. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising him in the owner's manual that he couldn't actually do this. The jury awarded him $1,750,000 plus a new motor home. The company actually changed their manuals on the basis of this suit, just in case there were any other complete morons buying their recreation vehicles.

Stella award named for the 81 year old lady who sued McDonalds and won-when she spilled coffee on herself.

You should see the others-lol

Well, if it helps, you had me puzzling over it for several minutes--as in, this doesn't make sense somehow. Glad Pagan cleared that up.

I guess we just aren't the provokable types, Pete. (Did I just make up a word?)
