Time to Thin the Herd

In 2006, Mrs. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City purchased a new 32 ft. Winnebago motor home. On her 1st trip home from a football game, while driving on the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the drivers seat to go to the back and make a sandwich.
The RV left the road, crashed and overturned. She sued Winnebago for not advising her in the owner’s manual that she shouldn’t do this. The jury awarded her $1,750,00 plus a new motor home. Winnebago has since changed their owner’s manual to include this warning in case there are any more complete morons around.
OK…now you know what I mean by thinning the herd, plus Winnebago should be able to sue the morons on the jury for malpractice, along with the Judge for accepting the ruling and allowing it to stand.
This has got to stop. Maybe the jury system has outlived it purpose. Perhaps, it should be replaced with professional jurors, where it is a job with a weekly salary.
Maybe people like Mrs Grazinski should not be allowed out in public alone. They are a hazard to the general population.

  1. How does a person this dumb, have enough money to buy the RV in the first place?

    Ahh!–It just hit me.

    She must be one of those flip-flopping Democrats that hold most of those plum government jobs.

  2. Unbelieveable! Mrs. Grazinski’s lawyer, the jury, the Judge – are suppose to be checks in the legal system. In this case, they all chose to tax the rest of us rather then tell Mrs. Grazinski, she’s stupid.

    You guys do know the story is an urban legend, right? Google Grazinski.

    OK, Rob
    I googled Grazinski. This case does appear to be an urban legend but there are so many others just as outrageous that are not, and the fact that so many of us are willing to accept this to be true proves that the absurd is the rule of law today. Of course, no personal responsibility is the theme for the day. We make excuses for everyone’s bad behavior. They grew up poor, without a father, without a mother, with out friends, they were picked on at school, they were fat, they were ugly, they were dumb, they were something, they were anything. but the one thing they all have in common is ‘they were not held personally responsible’.

    You mention professional jurors. I’ve like the idea, too–especially after having served on 3 different juries. The problem is that professional jurors can be susceptible to bribes.

    Organized crime would love the idea. They already try to get to jurors to get their people off. This would just put the jurors more easily in their sights.

    To be sure, many of the crazy lawsuits we hear about are jokes and/or urban legends. But Mouser makes a great point — how come Hanoi Jane and her crowd down’t march down mainstreet Chicago calling for an end to the killing.

    And speaking of the crazy lawsuits, remember the coffee spill burning a woman’s crotch? She spilled it – but she ordered COFFEE for pete’s sake — it’s usually served hot!

    And then there’s this one about a couple who sued Wal-Mart — all true — that I wrote on in my monthly column two years ago. How narcissistic can one couple get? I think Mouser is right — Wal-Mart should have been able to sue them back.

    Naw, only brainwashed lobotomized Shrub white trash sheep such as greetingsmyson are stupid enough to think you can set a mobile home on cruise control, get up and not expect it to crash….Dems actually listen to facts, have educations and have some common sense based on facts, not Faux News, asswipe!

    Mouse… You admit that it’s an urban legend [ie false]…then
    seem to make the case that it is STILL something we can learn from… What do they feed mice these days anyway? Credibility is the word in blogsville. You lose yours when you promote such trash.

    They call it self-justification to overcome feelings of
    guilt, for thinking bad thoughts. Thin the herd indeed.
    Time to keep a loaded shotgun by the door.

    Consulting qualified and highly experienced attorneys
    like property tax attorney Texas will bring
    the right tax savings straight at your door steps. Start your search by inquiring family and friends if they have prior experience working
    with these kinds of professionals. Because a high percentage of offers are rejected by the IRS, these cases often have to go to
    the appellate level ‘” at which point these firms will then turn around and hit the client with additional appellate representation fees.
