    Looks like she won in the settlement too.

    David Noll, her attorney, said Wednesday that he could not disclose the settlement's details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and "pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants."

    Guess that manager will now know the difference between a Toyota and a Toy Yoda :)

    Reminds me of a story from 15-20 years ago or so when a local car dealer had a TV ad where he said something along the lines of "A new car for only 10,000 bananas". Then someone came with a big truckload of 10,000 bananas and after a lawsuit IIRC, he had to give them the car.

    I think the best was when Burma-Shave offered a trip to Mars on a series of signs of 900 empty jars. A guy cashed in, and after a few correspondences they ended up sending his family to a town in Germany that was pronounced Mars.

    Winters,...
    Since there's a town in PA that's not only pronounced that way, it's spelled "Mars", seems a more likely choice! Also one in CA, and Texas, the latter state also boasting a town called "Earth".

    I think they probably wanted to at least give them a nice European vacation.
