Junk food can be a part of a healthy diet - if eaten rarely. If two stupid, fat, greedy girls tried to sue McDonnalds, then, well, they're just stupid. It was THEIR CHOICE to eat the frigging stuff all the time, so its THEIR fault they're unhealthy.

I mean, for goodness sake, its common sense.
Ding, Ding, Ding...we have a winner.
"Common Sense". Our legal system has managed to squeeze every bit of it out of a majority of our citizens.
Fat kids suing McDonalds. Stupid old women suing McDonalds because she spilled coffee on herself. The legal system in this country has become pretty much on par with the fucking lottery here.
In England, don't y'all have a loser pays stipulation? That is, if I cut off my finger with a circular saw and decide that I want to sue the company that made it, if I lose the lawsuit, I have to pay all of the company's legal fees.
That's my understanding, at least.
Different ballgame, here. If you can find a lawyer who's willing to take the case...which is roughly the equivalent of finding a guy who's willing to have sex with one of the Hawaiian Tropic girls at Spring Break...it's simply a roll of the dice.
What's really sad, is that for a lot of Americans, the idea of eating McDonalds for every meal isn't that far from reality. I'm not talking about college students here, I'm talking about families whose diet is roughly equivalent to what this guy did in the movie. It may not be McDonalds every night, but it's some other equally unhealthy shit.
I write this, washing down ten munchkins from Dunkin Donuts with 24oz. of their delicious coffee. Who do I sue?

The reason that the lady who sued about the coffee won was because McDonals kept their coffee exceptionally hot to extend its longevity. It was the unusually high temperature that was the liability.

That's why I order COLD drinks at McD's. I can't stand hot beverages, and if I do spill, I won't sue them, unless it stains.

I am a temperature pussy, and I drink an assload of McDonalds coffee driving back and forth between Tampa and Atlanta. I've never noticed it being any hotter than Dunkin Donuts, Cracker Barrel, Borders, Starbucks or any of the nasty shithole gas stations I buy coffee from to stay awake.
I just think she took advantage of our ridiculous legal system.
