Paging Really Small Fish, Dr. Really Small Fish, Shyster attorney on line two

The latest from the legal world:

A woman who says she was severely burned at a Miami night club four years ago is suing Bacardi, claiming the company's rum is dangerous and defective.

The lawsuit says a bartender was pouring shots when a customer lit a menu on fire and placed it in the stream of alcohol. A bottle of Bacardi 151 that was being used to pour the shots turned into a flame thrower.

The woman says she suffered second- and third-degree burns and was permanently disabled and disfigured.

Miami-based Bacardi USA hasn't commented yet on the suit.

Gosh, do we know anyone stupid enough to set fire to themselves doing shots of Bacardi? Geez, you'd think you'd have to be a government-dole scientist to do something that dumb.

Doesn't she remember Richard Pryor's original lame excuse for his freebasing accident?

And of course it has been scientifically proven to be dangerous.

The first judge that sees this case should dismiss it with prejudice and award costs to the defendant.
