    Default Greeeeeeen Acres is the place to be!

    The truly great comedy writes itself and pegs the needle on the weirdometer.

    Man A had part of his left foot and part of his leg amputated following a plane crash. He asked the hospital to send him the foot, since he wanted to be buried with it, and the hospital obliged. He put it in storage in a barbecue smoker in a public storage facility, neglected to pay the bill, and the contents of the storage locker were sold at auction.

    Enter Man B, who bought the locker contents. He was excited to get the smoker, but was even more excited when he opened it up and found a wrapped up human leg inside. He turned it over to the police, thinking it might be evidence of a crime, and the police investigated, determined both that no crime was committed and who the leg belonged to. The police turned the leg over to a funeral home and contacted Man A.

    Now Man B is hopping mad, because he says he is the rightful owner of the leg. He is already advertising the leg, with hand-scrawled signs on letter-size paper, tacked to telephone poles in his town. He plans to charge $3 a peek to adults and $1 for children. Man A will have none of it, while Man B is offering to split the take with Man A.

    The best line from the TV story had Man B threatening a lawsuit if Man A doesn't allow him to have the leg, because Man B has already taken deposits for peeks from 9 people. Yes, Man B is willing to pay court costs and attorney fees because he has taken $27 in deposits. Who else believes this might qualify as a "frivolous" lawsuit?

    Two things....

    I find it rather funny that Man B is "hopping" mad....

    But.....

    I don't think that Man A has a leg to stand on in this case......

    But it's a LEG not a HEAD

    From the guy who found the leg...

    "Whisnant himself has a bum left leg. It's the same side as the one found in the smoker.

    "We just sort of look at it like it was heaven-sent, and when we came across it we sort of got an extra left leg, you know," he said."

    Ya know, you just can't make this stuff up.....

    Man B might find that hiring an attorney will cost him an arm and a leg!

    Maybe ManB just wants to mummify it and keep it on his mantle above his fireplace. His family could give it Christmas presents..

    Oh wait, that was a different group of wackos.

    I guess that getting your leg handed to you is better than getting your *** handed to you.

    I guess that Man B could be making a lot of money out of billing people to look at the thing....

    Although at $3 a peek, it's not like he's charging an arm and a leg.....

    I confess to finding this part morbidly amusing.

    Man A had part of his left foot and part of his leg
    How do you have only PART of a foot, and PART of the same leg amputated?
