One year for mouse-in-soup scam

by Ted Frank on September 15, 2006

Ricky Lee Patterson had been seeking a $500,000 settlement from Cracker Barrel restaurant. “Prosecutors brought charges after an examination of the mouse found that it died of a fractured skull, had no soup in its lungs and had not been cooked – all of which suggested the rodent was dropped into the customer’s soup after it had died.” (AP, Sep. 14).

For some reason I just have the funniest image of a Medical examiner saying something like ‘You want me to autopsy WHAT?’

Now imagine Caruso from CSI: Miami saying that:
“You want…me…to autopsy…[head comes up] what?

Mr. Patterson should have stuck with lottery tickets. You only lose a dollar if you lose; not a year.
