1656 - First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers...

...and right after that, about half their clients.

I swear I'm not making this up. In an article in today's Miami Herald, a Knoxville woman is reported to have filed a lawsuit against Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, MTV, CBS, and their parent corporation, Viacom. She claims to have suffered "outrage, anger, embarrassment, and serious injury", along with millions of others. She's seeking class action status and billions of dollars in damages.

Render unto me a fucking break. Yeah, people were shocked and angered, and maybe embarrassed. Serious injury??!

I saw all 3 seconds of that part of the show. They didn't even get a closeup! This lady and her attorney need to be blown out of the nearest airlock. I don't think even Lionel Hutz would be dumb enough to take this case.

Guess this is what we get when we have a litigation industry running...

Maybe she was so shocked she fell off her chair. Or choked on something.

(Not that anybody would be responsible for that except the woman herself. Sheesh, some people are so fragile! This woman reminds me a little of every person on the net who hates furries because one day he saw erotic fanart featuring his favorite cartoon characters and now he's all like "You perverts RUINED my CHILDHOOD!")
