The Untied Skates of Uhmurkuh is a lawsuit happy society. If one fool thinks there is any way he can squeeze a few bucks out of "them cheaters in big business," he will want to file a lawsuit over it. And America being "The Land Of Lawyers," there is usually some ambulance-chasing low-life willing to take the case. Worse still, there is a jury -- usually hand-picked to be as ignorant and easily misled as possible -- who will fall for the plaintiff's whining comlaing.
A woman suing McDonald's because she got burned by a cup of scalding hot coffee held between her legs is bad enough. At least she's got physical injuries that need skin grafts. But here's half-past-dumb-and-headed-for-idiotic for you: Some guy in NiJoyzee has gone past the edge of reasion. He measured his Subway "Footlong" sandwiches and found that they were -- horror of horrors -- up to a full inch too short!
Yep, you read it right -- A man named Jason Leslie measured several Subway "footlong" sandwiches and found they were between half an inch and a full inch too short. Now he's filed a class-action lawsuit against Subway for "cheating their customers."

PM MARLBORO, N.J., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A New Jersey man is suing the Subway sandwich chain after he discovered the restaurant's "Footlong" subs often fall short of 12 inches. Jason Leslie, 32, of Marlboro, said he discovered from a New York Post article last week that the chain's "Footlongs" often fall an inch to an inch and a half short of a full foot -- and he discovered four days later his meatball sub was less than the advertised 12 inches, the New York Post reported Thursday. "They advertise in all these commercials, 'Footlong, Footlong, Footlong,' and now I feel like an idiot," said Leslie, who estimated he has purchased about 50 Sunway sandwiches a year since he was 18. "I can't believe I fell for that trick. "The sandwiches are anywhere between a half-inch to an inch shorter .. I feel cheated," he said. Leslie's federal class-action suit, filed Wednesday in Trenton, comes after a state suit was filed Tuesday in Burlington County, N.J., which also accuses Subway of deceptive marketing. Attorney Stephen DeNittis, who said he is filing a similar lawsuit Thursday in Philadelphia on behalf of Charles Pendrak and John Farley, said he wants Subway either to ensure its sandwiches measure up or "put up a disclaimer." Subway said in a statement its "commitment remains steadfast to ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches." "We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve."

No wonder the Untied Skates is going to hell in a handbasket.
People like Mr. Leslie have too much money and too much time on their hands, and too little sense to balance them out.
