Representative Dennis Kucinich – mental deviant, Ohio – is suing the company that supplies the Longworth House Office building cafeteria for $150,000, after he cracked a tooth after biting into a pitted olive sandwich:
The incident happened over 3 years ago when he purchased the sandwich from a cafeteria at the Longworth House Office building. The sandwich was advertised as containing pitted olives that had the hard olive seeds removed. Upon biting into the sandwich, Kucinich claimed the sandwich caused him “serious and permanent dental and oral injuries” that required “multiple surgical and dental procedures.”
The congressman is now suing the company that runs the cafeteria for $150,000 in damages.
Kucinich’s lawsuit also claims he “sustained other damages,” including “significant pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment.”
The Mayor heard that Kucinich has been banned from “Pumpkin Night” at Appleby’s for obvious reasons (if that isn’t obvious, pumpkins have many large, hard seeds. Unless the seeds are baked, then they are soft and quite delicious).
I actually feel sorry for Dennis Kucinich, and not because he’s a raving lunatic, but rather because breaking a tooth is the pits. And if there’s a kernel of truth in this story, then I suppose he’s entitled to his money. Maybe not the whole $150,000, but at least a little seed money. And I’m sure there is a grain of truth to this, and even though Kucinich is a nut, and his buds probably egged him on into this lawsuit, I’d say he has a berry good chance of winning. Mind you, Kucinich first has to produce his evidence, harvest the information correctly in order to yield favourable results. If he does all that, the fruits of his labour will come home in spades.
