    Toy Yoda.

    I was going to stick this in the funny pics thread but it's not really a funny pic so it gets a thread all its own.
    Some people got no sense of humour.

    Depends. If it was a verbal "agreement", she could lose. But if it was written (poster or whatever), she could win. Its a nice word play (Toyota, toy yoda), but it doesn't stand up written down....

    Just thinking about it again maybe she has a point and because of the mere fact the management led her out into the car park.

    Misrepresentation by the mangement and probable deceit.

    Not to mention how many head j%bs she had to give away for free and to get her beer sales up.

    I would be pissed as well.

    Apparently a true story...

    TEMS IN THE NEWS - TOYOTA PRIZE WINNER SUES HOOTERS AFTER BEING DECEIVED
    Contributed by Marlane Kayfes in August 2001

    TOY YODA WASN'T WHAT SHE HAD IN MIND
    Associated Press, PANAMA CITY, Fla.

    Oh, what a feeling. Toy Yoda!

    A former Hooters waitress has sued the restaurant where she worked, saying she was promised a new Toyota for winning a beer sales contest. Instead, she said, she won a new toy "Yoda" - the little green guy from the "Star Wars" movies.
    Jodee Berry, 26, won a contest to see who could sell the most beer in April at the Hooters in Panama City Beach. She said the top-selling waitresses from each Hooters restaurant in the area were entered into a drawing and her name was picked.
    She believed she'd won a new car.
    She was blindfolded and led to the restaurant parking lot, but when her blindfold was removed she found she was the winner not of a Toyota, but a toy Yoda doll.
    Inside the restaurant, the manager was laughing, Berry said. She wasn't. "A corporation can't lead their employees on like that," Berry said. "It's not good business ethics. They can't do that to people."

    Berry quit the restaurant a week later. She sued Gulf Coast Wings, Inc., owners of the restaurant, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation. Her lawyer, Stephen West of Pensacola, said he was also looking at false advertising statutes. She's seeking as compensation the cost of a new Toyota.

    Stuart Houston, a spokesman for the company, said it hadn't been served with the lawsuit and he could not comment.

    Berry said restaurant manager Jared Blair told his waitresses he didn't know what kind of Toyota it would be-a car, truck or van-but told them the winner would be responsible for the tax on the vehicle. Blair, reached at the restaurant Saturday, said he had no comment.

    HOOTERS LOSES YODA SUIT
    May 9, 2002

    PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A former waitress has settled her lawsuit against Hooters, the restaurant that gave her a toy Yoda doll instead of the Toyota she thought she'd won.

    Jodee Berry, 27, won a beer sales contest last May at the Panama City Beach Hooters. She believed she had won a new Toyota and happily was escorted to the restaurant's parking lot in a blindfold.

    But when the blindfold was removed, she found she had won a new toy Yoda -- the little green character from the "Star Wars" movies.

    David Noll, her attorney, said Wednesday that he could not disclose the settlement's details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and "pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants."

    After the stunt, Berry quit the restaurant and filed a lawsuit against Gulf Coast Wings, Inc., the restaurant's corporate owner, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation.

    The restaurant's manager, Jared Blair, has said the whole contest was an April Fools' joke.

    Have to say, "Good on Her". Hope she gets the car and the company, excrement that it is, sorts it's act out.


    If the same thing had happened to me I would probably followed the same course of action.

    I wonder why she isn't seeking $500,000,000,000 for stress or something. That's what they do in the USA isn't it?

    Is this against her for wearing a Hooters shirt with no Hooters?

    She should sue herself. Or somebody else. For something. Or nothing.
    Sue for cents. A cents of humus.

    Agreed. Once you've agreed to a prize based on the selling of your body, the size of the prize no longer matters, you're still a whore and don't have a leg to stand on.
