Oh so true……
I didn’t think there would be any arguments on that one.
How I wish I could say someone made this up…. I can understand suing for misrepresentation, to get labeling changed to reflect the truth. This is so blatantly a “get rich quick scheme’ using our legal system! If this woman was serious expecting to find out what a crunchberry is don’t you think a box of kids’ cereal would NOT be a good place to start looking? Where else but in the good ol’ USA are stupid people allowed to walk around? Good thing the Cap’n triumphed this time else there would be a 6 year old uprising of unimaginable proportions! What would the kids do without their massive sugar rush each
On May 21, a judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she had purchased “Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries” because she believed it contained real fruit. The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, alleged that she had only recently learned to her dismay that said “berries” were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls, and that although the product did contain some strawberry fruit concentrate, it was not otherwise redeemed by fruit. She sued, on behalf of herself and all similarly situated consumers, some of whom may believe that there are fields somewhere in our land thronged by crunchberry bushes.
According to the complaint, Sugawara and other consumers were misled not only by the use of the word “berries” in the name, but also by the front of the box, which features the product’s namesake, Cap’n Crunch, aggressively “thrusting a spoonful of ‘Crunchberries’ at the prospective buyer.” Plaintiff claimed that this message was reinforced by other marketing representing the product as a “combination of Crunch biscuits and colorful red, purple, teal and green berries.” Yet in actuality, the product contained “no berries of any kind.” Plaintiff brought claims for fraud, breach of warranty, and our notorious and ever-popular California Unfair Competition Law and Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
“Sixteen tons” redone for those maybe a little upset with the economic direction the USA is taking.
Last week WordPress released version 2.8 of their fantastic blogging software. Sporting 790+ bugfixes, with many changes to the backend. So far with minimal testing it is significantly faster, and the image uploader seems to have been fixed up with no more Flash errors reported by Firefox.
Keep up the good work fellas!
A pile of pics gathered from some artist or another back in the day. Some VERY nice work here, though may be NSFW in some circumstances… it IS artwork, but we all know how that goes… IF anyone can identify the artist please let me know.
