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

    Man A had 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?

    I read about this earlier this week. The guy that has it now should just return the leg. It does belong to the other guy, for cryin' out loud. Some people are just dumb.

    Its crap like this where I wish there was a law that whoever brings such a stupid lawsuit and loses should pay all legal fees. I don't think you would see much of this nonsense then.
