Via Our Place Restaurant/Facebook.Are you an aficionado of pointless, asinine lawsuits? We at Wonkettesure are! And boy, do we have a good one for you today.


A Texas lawyer (two words you never want to see next to each other) by the name of Dwain Downing is threatening to sue Our Place Restaurant in Mansfield after they failed to deliver on the promise of soup. Downing ordered the lunch special, which includes two sides and a soup. The restaurant, however, ran out of soup before he got there, and when they refused to substitute something else, Downing became incensed. Never mind the fact that the restaurant's menu clearly stated "while supplies last"; Downing wanted his damn free soup, and he wanted it NOW.

Unable to convince them to give up the free shit, Downing then looked up the price of the soup on the menu ($2.25), went home, and filed a lawsuit for $2.25 plus $250 in attorney's fees, because that is a thing a sane human being would ever consider doing. He also referred to continuing to have the soup on the printed menu after the restaurant had run out (even with the disclaimer) as a "deceptive trade practice," which makes sense, because Our Place is located in Hogwarts and the manager on duty can just magic the unwanted words away by saying "ALOHOMORA" or some shit.

In case you were wondering how the restaurant's owner would react to this, here you go:

The restaurant owner, Benji Arslanovsk, told local news outlets that he’d never seen anything like this and he called the letter ridiculous.

“When I opened it, I was just shocked,” Arslanovsk said. “You’ve got to be kidding me ... I mean, it is a cup of soup.”

Arslanovsk also vowed to fight the theoretical lawsuit regardless of whether it winds up costing him far more than $250. The entire legal system, meanwhile, could not be reached for comment, because it was far too busy laughing hysterically.

Before we get all het up about Donald Trump's press conference with Vladimir Putin, Tucker Carlson says, we need to look at the larger perspective. Maybe Russia hacked us, maybe they didn't, but what about how Mexicans have interfered in our elections for decades just by being born here, huh?

Have you been enjoying the last 24 hours of the mainstream media suddenly realizing there's a Russian intelligence asset in the White House, which is something we at Wonkette have known since October of 2016? Hilarious, right? Anyway, DOJ just found another Russian spy in its big "witch hunt." Her name is Maria Butina and she was arrested on Sunday, because the feds were pretty sure she was about to run. Now she is being held in federal custody without bond.

Butina, who is being called a Russian gun rights activist in the news reels, has been indicted for being a total fucking Russian spy who secretly worked to infiltrate the NRA and use it to create secret back channels between the Kremlin and the Republican party. WITCH HUNT!

Keep one idea in your head during this post, please: There is no such thing as a Russian gun rights activist, at least not in the way that we know it. They do not have a "second amendment" in Russia. It is not a gun culture. And Vladimir Putin's political party certainly isn't trying to Samantha Stephens one into existence! So it would follow that if a "Russian gun nut" is up the NRA's ass trying to create back channels, she is actually just a Russian spy who probably isn't even that good at guns.
