You Say Tomayto, I Say Tomahto

While this happened years ago, I wanted to share it with those of you who need a good laugh today. Jodee Berry, then aged 26 of Panama City, Florida, sued the Hooter's restaurant where she used to work because she was misled over a prize in a beer selling contest.

I can understand her upset. Isn't Lexus a division of Toy Yoda?

I missed this when it first happened back in 2002, I think it was. I saw it today and just laughed and laughed. But if you read the article (second link), you'll see she kind of had a valid complaint. The manager of that particular Hooter's was going around saying things like "who knows what kind of toy Yoda it will be, a car, a truck, maybe a van..." If he's making "hints" that it was a vehicle, then they screwed themselves.

really, the dude went as far as telling her the winner is responsible for the tax on it. do you think they asked her to pay the couple of bucks tax on the toy? :lol:

I have a Toy yoda that is a truck! I'm glad she got her prize.

She actually "QUALIFIED" for working at "Hooters"??? Maybe, possibility I could win a "toy" too?? I might settle for the battery driven kind.
