i want my feelings hurt

There's GOLD in them there slurs. A total of $61 million worth, if you're lucky enough to find a really sensitive jury.

As Walter Olsen observes on his excellent site, overlawyered:

...the award works out to $15 million per epithet-year, $290,000 per slur-week, or $40,000 per imprecation-day.

Wow! $40,000 PER DAY for being "insulted?" Holey moley! That's more money than a corrupt Congress-critter can steal, even by taking bribes with both hands and selling favors the way Ben & Jerry sell ice cream.

If it pays THAT well, I want MY feelings hurt, too.


I wnat in that line too man. You can call me anything you want for a couple of years for that kind of dough. Numbtardary at it's finest.
