Where's the berries?!???

With all the horrible things I've been reading about lately, this has made my morning: Women loses lawsuit about Crunchberries cereal

"Late last month, a U.S. District Court judge dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she'd been buying Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries cereal for four years under the assumption that crunchberries are a real berry. "The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, alleged that she had only recently learned to her dismay that said 'berries' were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls...."

"This Court is not aware of, nor has Plaintiff alleged the existence of, any actual fruit referred to as a "crunchberry." Furthermore, the "Crunchberries" depicted on the [box] are round, crunchy, brightly-colored cereal balls, and the [box] clearly states both that the Product contains "sweetened corn & oat cereal" and that the cereal is "enlarged to show texture." ... So far as this Court has been made aware, there is no such fruit growing in the wild or occurring naturally in any part of the world."

You've been eating Crunchberries for 4 years and didn't realize that there is no such thing as a crunchberry? That' isn't even really the part that kills me. It's that she was "dismayed".

I am having an uncontrollable gigglefest.

  1. HS, that is SAD. Like I meant to ask you last night, have you heard about dumbass Floridians who call 911 when they don't get their complete orders after going through fast-food drive-throughs?

    Like H.F.S.
