    So McDonalds gets sued because the parents were too stupid to know that burgers and fries from ANY fast food joint are fattening and not healthy? Shouldn't there be a "common sense" law that prevents lawsuits from stupid people?

    This fiasco started well before that, I think we've done several threads on it already.

    Most of us though it was dead and buried, but a federal judge decided to dig up the corpulent corpse and toss it back into the food court.

    I am surprised the kids don't sue the parents for allowing them to eat MacDonalds and/or general stupidity.

    Yeah, and its funny because the kids probably eat at several different fast food restaurants regularly, not just McDonalds.

    One of the benefits of being Burger King (#2) instead of McDonalds (#1) --- your ass never gets sued! :p

    That movie is about as stupid as this lawsuit. A guy stuffs himself full of fatty food all day every day and gains a ton of weight...what's the big revelation? Why does that mystify people and make them want to give this loser an Oscar?

    As for the suit, why have I not heard a single word about the parents who let their children get fat from eating too much bad food? At the very least, the parents should be jailed indefinitely for causing so much trouble in the media and legal system. It's almost scary that people are stupid enough to let their kids get sick, yet they're somehow smart enough to jump into a complex legal system and sue someone.

    Common sense is now an oxymoron. :rolleyes:

    The parents need to take responsibility, they are the parents. Need to teach the children that too many calories in cause obesity. That is the problem with our society, no one wants to take responsibility for their own actions. Claiming that it's someone else's fault. All the while lining the pockets of lawyers.
