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."

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'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

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.

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".
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

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