New York Man Sues After Whisky Glass Explodes on Flight
This wasn't what one 24 year-old man was hoping for or expecting on a recent flight. A trip from JFK to China is going to be long enough, so you're going to want to have all the comforts of home. A glass of whisky can help calm the nerves. That is, if the glass you're drinking it out of doesn't suddenly shatter and cut you in the face.
According to the NY Post, that's what happened to a Long Island man on a Hainan Airlines flight to Chengdu. Now, the man is suing, according to the Post. The man had ordered the drink at his seat, when he then left to use the restroom, according to the suit. When he returned, the glass somehow shattered and cut the left side of his face, says the suit.
The Post says the suit was filed against Hainan Airlines December 11 in Brooklyn Federal Court. The mysterious exploding glass appears to have done some damage too, as the shards left a one and half inch cut near the man's eye, according to the lawsuit.There is no word in the Post's article that factors such as air turbulence or tampering were involved. Maybe next time stick to bottled water?

Man in Neighboring State Sues Over Chocolate Schlong
Remember this weird story? If you ever wanted to play a twisted prank on an enemy, or maybe get back at an old ex, there's a company that's out to help ruin their day. In fact, that's what they pride themselves on. The company Ruin Days, out of Queens, proudly boasts: "We ruin your enemy’s day.” if you look at the prank section of the company's website, you have choice of anonymously mailing your rivals fake poop, a dick in a tube, an annoying box of sand and many other crude and obscene pranks.
It appears one 47-year-old Bergen County man has really gotten on someone's wrong side and has paid dearly for it. Now, he's filed a lawsuit that claims that for nearly the past two years, he's received obscene prank gifts in the mail that have left him suffering fear, apprehension, harm and emotional distress, among other unpleasant things.
NJ.com says that the weird packages started showing up in May 2019, when the Oakland, NJ man reportedly received a chocolate penis in the mail. The suit claims the chocolate schlong was sent to the man's office in Fair Lawn. The strange prank left the man quite rattled, though officials did not go into detail just how big the package was, or what the man did with the chocolate covered unit upon discovery. This was only the first item, as the suit goes on to say he was next mailed a glitter bomb which exploded in his face. This particular package arrived in November 2020.
But the reign of terror was not over yet, as in the same month, the man was mailed a box that contained imitation feces, according to the lawsuit. The box was reportedly addressed to "Fat Midget", and its contents both "shocked and frightened" its intended target. One has to wonder what this man did or who he pissed off to draw such ire? The lawsuit not only names the prank company, but an unidentified John Doe . NJ.com says the man is seeking damages of $75,000, along with court fees.
