Adam Ruins Everything has spilled the beans on one of the most infamous lawsuits of the last 30 years.
You’ve probably heard the story of the greedy old woman and her dastardly plan to burn herself and make out with millions. Heck, they made a Seinfeld episode out of it.
But that’s not the real story.
Adam Ruins Everything spent last night ruining justice in their latest episode, and in the midst of taking the criminal justice system to task, he gave a run down of the real story of that greedy old woman who burned herself for money.
What actually happened was a 79-year-old woman, sitting in the passenger seat of a parked car, accidentally spilled McDonald’s coffee on herself. While she admitted the accident was her fault, McDonald’s coffee was being served at 190 degrees — nearly boiling — and left her with third degree burns. McDonald’s said that their coffee was a hazard at that temperature, agreeing with the 700 people who had already complained during the previous decade.
Check out the full clip above and think twice cracking joke about a lawsuit like this.
Wendy's a fine and upstanding chain that apparently does NOT freeze their beef seized the moment to outright put down MacTrons, and give us the kind of Grade A American Twitter Beef (unfortunately short-lived) war that we deserve. We can only hope that this little virtual altercation picks up legs, and carries on into comedic gold land:
Hong Kong just went next level with the fast food dining experience.
We associate Mickey D's with grease-soaked, hastily-fried, platters of 'do I really want the salad this time, or anytime though?'
Who would've thought McDonald's would've introduced classy presentations--we're talking burgers on cutting boards--fresh ingredients, for the freshest salads; and even insta-fame-worthy lattes with artful twists that'd color any hipster grateful.
Fed up with customers and colleagues giving him grief over his "dead end" job, Mike Waite went on Facebook to drop a public announcement that has caught the attention of the entire internet. Mike, who works over 50 hours a week, is sick and tired of people claiming he has no aspirations.
Well, the 20-year-old has been heard and hopefully his touching Facebook rant will change the way you look at the person behind the counter next time you order a McFlurry.
