Default Weird Cupon

I was reading the Best Buy ad and came across this cupon with some weird fine print. I scanned it and underlined the fine print. This is not a doctered image. Check it out.

Well, there is only a few reasons that is there:

1. Geek Squad, and something like that is only something that we (geeks) would find funny, so it was just thrown in there as random. Frankly, I find it hilarious!

2. Someone impaled their computer with a kitana or like sword, and than brought it to BestBuy under some sort of deal where they said they could fix it, unknowing about the sword, and the person in question sued Best Buy so now they put it in there to cover their asses.

The first one is most likely, but the second one is a completely plausible scenario.

Sadly enough that could be true...a 2nd person has managed to sue mcdonalds for spilling coffee on themselves....how this happens a damn 2nd time is beyond me, AND I believe they won.

There was also a lady who tried to sue smith and wesson because her son was shot by some mugger with that gun......thankfully she actually lost that case, but ehh, SHE needs to be shot.

Let us not forget the dumb russian idiot who sued NASA for crashing that probe into the comet for 'messing up her horoscope'
