Lawsuit of the Day: “Have It Your Way,” Indeed

whopper burger king.jpgBack when we worked at McDonald’s, customers would ask us if we sold onion rings. We would tell them, with suppressed exasperation, that no, sorry, we don’t. If you want onion rings, try Burger King.
And if you want your food laced with pot, try Burger King, too. From the AP:

Two police officers sued Burger King Corp., claiming they were served hamburgers that had been sprinkled with marijuana.

The lawsuit says Mark Landavazo and Henry Gabaldon, officers for the Isleta Pueblo tribal police, were in uniform and riding in a marked patrol car when they bought meals at the drive-through lane October 8 of a Burger King restaurant in Los Lunas, New Mexico.

The officers ate about half of their burgers before discovering marijuana on the meat, the lawsuit said. They used a field test kit to confirm the substance was pot, then went to a hospital for medical evaluations.

We’ll give the last word to the officers’ pleasingly glib lawyer, Sam Bregman: “It gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘Whopper.'”
