Stupid Lawsuit o’ the Day:
A freelance photographer who suffered brain damage after falling off a garbage truck he climbed atop to take pictures of Ground Zero is suing the carting company for $50 million.
Lawyers for the victim, Robert Levin, accuse Waste Management LLP and its truck driver of “failure to respect the plaintiff’s rights as a pedestrian,” which is legalese for “failure to respect the plantiff’s severe mental retardation by not stopping him from being a complete dumb-ass“.
Folks, let’s just everyone quit our jobs, do something mind-numbingly stupid and then sue the people who didn’t stop us from being dipshits. Apparently, there’s money in that nowadays.
