Sue Easy
Status: Real
One of the big problems in modern America is that there are simply not enough lawsuits. A new website promises to end this. It calls itself "Sue Easy," because it makes it so easy to sue someone.

The concept is that instead of litigants trying to find a lawyer, which is the traditional way these things are done, the lawyers should seek out the litigants. So if you have a case, or even just an idea for a case, list it on SueEasy, then wait for attorneys to contact you. The site promises "instant legal bliss."

Some of the proposed cases that people have listed so far:

Hotdog and Bun Mismatch
Currently buns are sold in packages of 10 but hotdogs come in packages of 8. Thus, it is impossible to perfectly match the number of hotdogs to the number of buns without buying 4 packs of buns and 5 packs of hotdogs.

Circumcision is sexual abuse, torture and mutilation
Any man that was circumcised is due reparations for the lost sexual functioning he inevitably suffered since circumcision removes the most sensitive part of the penis.

These sound like real winners.

As bizarre as the site sounds (note that I was being sarcastic about there being too few lawsuits), it's apparently not a joke. It's the creation of a guy named Sahil Kazi, whose other projects include webtronaut.com.

If SueEasy proves to be a success, eventually someone will sue it for encouraging frivolous litigation. That's inevitable.

Did anyone else notice the hotdogs vs. bun case is straight out of the Father of the Bride movie. In fact, the dad (Steve Martin?) goes to jail because of his outburst on this matter.

As hard as it is for people to believe, this is not the most litigious time in the history of our country. In the colonial and early national periods, people sued each other with great frequency. They did not try to solve their problems face to face, they left it up to a court to decide all differences. Of course, they didn't often use lawyers to do this, representing themselves most of the time.

How much money for the foreskins? Do the money pay more if there is more foreskin? More money for each inch? Or it it for the thickness or patterns, or ribbed for her pleasure? I just want to know these things, in case I decide to sell my collection. Just add the water. Hah, ha, ha I am too sorry, no thing is funny about the foreskins, if they are separated or on the vine, they are not funny. They are at Chrismas, and you know what I mean! Oh, ow I drop the scissor Rrrraoul

There are campaigns against forced male genital mutilation (e.g. http://www.norm-uk.org). Probably the only reason they have never become significant is that the practice obviously has a major religious and ethnic dimension.

...why have my last two posts mentioned circumcision? Any psychiatrists reading this?

The disciplinary committees for each state bar will be very interested in seeing which attorneys are signing up for this scheme. Attorneys soliciting people to file lawsuits is a violation of professional ethics in every state I know of.

The hot dog and bun thing is stupid.

Buns are not sold in packs of 10, at least not always. My wife picked up a 6-pack of buns the other day and I have seen 8, 12, 16, etc. And dogs don't always come in 8-packs either.

I haven't seen odd bun & hotdog pairings in I don't know how many years. Obviously the companies hooked up & decided to make it easy. You can get hotdogs in bulk...I have seen as many as 40 per package. BUT, the buns, even in bulk, are seperated into 8 bun packages.

I watched a video that mentioned circumcision as a sex crime against an infant. But then I met a guy who was circumcised as an adult...he said he wished it had been done when he was an infant so he didn't have to remember dealing with the healing process...but he preferred being circumcised to not. He was 40 when he got it done.

when I was a young lycanthropic lad, I formally requested to my parents that they return my stolen foreskin to me. Sorry, they said, it was currently being used as an infield rain cover at Yankee Stadium. Considering that The House That Ruth Built (and kept dry with my foreskin) is due to be replaced before next season, I wonder if there's hope that I may be returned my precious? Oh, and kids, they're building the new stadium now, so watch your goodies, okay? Ow

I was circumcised not long after I was born at Kaiser hospital in Southern California. I am scared for life and cannot even enjoy sex knowing that a doctor butchered off the most sensitive part of my penis. Infant circumcision is sexual abuse, torture, and multilation and has ruined my life. The doctors did not inform my parents the foreskins functions. Why didn't I have a choice about my body? This was a voilation of my human rights and I deserve compensation.
