Let's Sue Someone!!!

Why not kick in a few $ and retain RCC and pick some worthless fucker and sue the bejesus out of him?

I'm thinking that this might have financial legs.

What would it cost? 25K or so?

So who shall it be?

25K? If RCC donates his services we're looking at $400, tops. But I'm not sure why you'd want to sue a worthless motherfucker. We won't even get our investment back.

I'm thinking Musk.

That's dumb, Musk actually has a spine.

Anybody here black or some protected group? The more pathetic the better.

We could surgically amputate a limb and maybe move a nose over. Drooling is good.

My iced vanilla double-shot cafe latte mocha espresso made me feel bloated and soul-less today.

I want my $6 back, and $60 million in damages for the loss of my soul.

Are the soul-less a protected class? :(
Such potential!

I know that I can't get insurance. Soul-lessness is considered a pre-existing condition if you're married. :(

What makes you think your soul is worth $60 million?

Even Satan never offers that much, let alone actually pay anything. :P

Why not pull your usual shtick and "identify as" something. :BigGrin3:

You?

Stately Ed Manor has got to be worth a fortune.

Stately Ed Manor is heavily defended against grotty peasants with phony lawsuits.

I have identified a viable and sensible cure for some money woes. Think of Bruce. He has to lick up spilled reagents to earn extra money to keep his wife in baubles. Think of how happy he'd be if we pulled this off.

It's true. When I was in graduate school, I used to carry a cardboard sign that said, "Will synthesize platinum oxo complexes for publications food".

It was only through the grace and kindness of the journalists at Organometallics that I am alive today.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
