Lazy? Sue!

Man says hes addicted to cable; wants to sue Charter

Quote:
Cable TV made a West Bend man addicted to TV, caused his wife to be overweight and his kids to be lazy, he says.

And hes threatening to sue the cable company.

Timothy Dumouchel of West Bend wants $5,000 or three computers, and a lifetime supply of free Internet service from Charter Communications to settle what he says will be a small claims suit.
Great. It is always someone elses fault.

And, if they get their way, these lazy people will just move from their TV to their computers.

I wonder if I could sue my ISP for $5000 on the same grounds. I would settle for a big screen TV and free cable for life, though.

So when do we all file the class action suit against Elvis? I've missed plenty of work and surely put on few pounds staring at the blue crack

I blame the fact that I just busted my diet and ate a cookie on images on the Internet.

It's a sad thing, I've watched my sister's boy turn into a fat kid who's idea of excercise is walking to the refrigerator during commercials. The person who feeds him and controls his access to games and TV is at fault, not the programming. My sister doesn't excercise, so why would he? He's nine now, and he weighs more than I do.

Do the words "free will" mean anything to him? The fact that the cable company existed didn't force him to watch it. Besides, how is $5000 (or free internet, for that matter) going to resolve his problem? Surely he won't spend it going to the gym or buying healthy food ...

so he's suing the cable company because his family sits around and gets fat, and he asks in return for a computer and internet service, which you have to sit on your butt in order to use... perhaps he could've sued for a membership to a gym or somethin'...
