    :cigar: :Pound:
    This actually took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
    A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured
    them against, among other things, Fire.

    Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars,
    the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company.

    In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.'
    The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the
    man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

    The lawyer sued and WON!

    Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the
    claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a
    policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were
    insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without
    defining what is considered to be unacceptable "fire" and was obligated to
    pay the claim.

    Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance
    company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss
    of the cigars that perished in the "fires".

    NOW FOR THE BEST PART???

    After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested
    on 24 counts of ARSON! With his own insurance claim and testimony from
    the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of
    intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months
    in jail and a $24,000 fine.

    This true story won First Place in last year's Criminal Lawyers Award contest.

    There is justice once a while. Reminds me of Super Bowl season. People go "buy" very big screen TV's from Walmart, have a party with friends, then return the TV for a refund. Kind of sick but that's Walmart's return policy.....

    Tool stores have a similar problem with people buying a diagnostic tool, fix their cars ten returning the tool. Store I worked at had a no return policy on diagnostic tools unless a proven defect.

    Most people are honest thinking and not cheats. Unfortunately there are those out there who will abuse everything for their betterment and to hell with the rest of the decent world out there.

    Now, we return you to your humourous world. Hard to believe that this thread has developed into 5167 post of dribble and nonsense for the most part.

    A Glaswegian lad takes his girlfriend home for the first time to meet the family.
    He says "This is Amanda" to which his dad jumps up shouting "its a fucking WHAT!!!!!"

    Best read in a Glasgow accent.
