It’s official; there’s too many lawyers

Suing for this?

Wholly guacamole?

That’s the issue in a fraud lawsuit filed Wednesday against Kraft Foods, Inc., by a Los Angeles woman who claims the company’s avocado dip doesn’t qualify as guacamole.

“It just didn’t taste avocadoey,” said Brenda Lifsey, who used Kraft Dips Guacamole in a three-layer dip last year. “I looked at the ingredients and found there was almost no avocado in it.”

She is seeking unspecified damages and a Superior Court order barring Kraft from calling its dip guacamole. Her suit seeks class-action status.

I think it’s funny that this woman decided to sue instead of, say, going to the market and spending a buck on an avacado or two. Heck, in L.A. she could probably find one on a tree somewhere.

The fact she thought “sue” first tells me two things; First, Brenda is a lazy, money grubbing individual who’s trying to bilk the system. Second, that a ridiculous complaint like this could garner anything more than laughter illuminates the fact that we have reached a saturation point in the legal market.

This story makes me think that the “loser pays” lawsuit model needs to be implemented nationwide.
