Free Toy Yoda


Enunciate Clearly

When in doubt, mumble; when in trouble, delegate; when in charge, ponder; when incensed, sue.

Jodee Berry of Panama City, Florida sits with her toy Yoda at her lawyer's office.

Jodee Berry, a former Hooter's waitress, has sued the restaurant where she worked saying she was promised a new Toyota for winning a beer sales contest in April.  Berry, 26, believed she had won a new car, but she was blindfolded, led to the parking lot and presented a toy Yoda, the little green guy from Star Wars.

A legal battle between a waitress, and her former employer has been concluded in her favour.  Jodee Berry had been disgruntled when the prize for a beer selling competition was a Yoda doll, rather than the Toyota car she had expected.  Gulf Coast Wings Incorporated, the owners of the Panama City Beach Hooters, faced allegations of breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation.  Now Jodee Berry has been allowed to pick the Toyota model of her choice

A blonde goes into a coffee shop and notices there's a "peel and win" sticker on her coffee cup.  She peels it off and starts screaming, "I've won a motorhome!  I've won a motorhome!"  The waitress says, "That's impossible.  The biggest prize is a free lunch," but the blonde keeps on screaming, "I've won a motorhome!  I've won a motorhome!"

Finally, the manager comes over and says, "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but you're mistaken.  You couldn't have possibly won a motorhome because we didn't have that as a prize."

The blonde says, "No, it's not a mistake.  I've won a motorhome!"  She hands the ticket to the manager and he reads...

"W I N A B A G E L"

Let Me Spell It Out

In case the irony isn't readily apparent: painted on the bus is:
"if you don't have GIO Third Party Property Insurance, we suggest you don't hit this bus."

Maybe they were trying to read the sign...
