The Force Wasn't With Her.

There's so many things to discuss here, plus I wanna know what y'all think. Let's get started, shall we?

1. Who spells their name "Jodee?" (Please forgive me if there's a Jodee reading Lulaville. I'm sorry you've lived a life such as mine, knowing those personalized mugs, magnets, and keychains in tacky tourist shops will never have your name on them, spelled correctly. )

2. Here's a big Club La Vela shout-out for all you Panama City Beach-goers. And no, I will not tell you how many times I danced there. As a teenager. On Spring Break. Pretending to be 21. The end.

3. I'm truly wondering whether Jodee actually worked at Hooters. 'Cause hers are unimpressive. Again, Jodee...if you're reading this...forgive me, but you could've at least worn a Miracle Bra for your A/P News debut. I'm just sayin'. And sayin' it in a loving way, I assure you.

4. I'll admit "Toyota" and "Toy Yoda" sound rather similar. But Jodee...did you not use context clues to determine the difference? Did your super-nerdy, Sci-Fi loving boss gleefully announce the prize? (I heart nerds...especially nerds at Hooters. Wait, I've never been to Hooters. I digress...) Or is your manager a hurly-burly, good ol' boy type, and you simply misheard? "Y'all sell them beers right and you'll be gettin' a Toy-Yoda!" These two scenarios would explain a lot.

5. Speaking of nerds (I heart nerds), millions of 'em read this article today and asked, "Yeah? So? What's the big deal?"

OK...that's enough from me. I wanna know what y'all think about this. Please commence with the discussion. We'll be forming a support group for Jodee very soon. Based on the expression upon her face she surely needs some support. (And a Miracle Bra.)

Love her heart.

She thought she was getting a Toyota.

Technically, the do sound similar. Did she ever ask if they meant a car? If she did and they told her yes, then she might have grounds for a lawsuit, although still frivolous. If not, it was her misunderstanding and therefore her loss. We've all been disappointed. It was meant as a joke, Jodee with two e's. Geesh...lighten up, would ya? I don't feel sorry for her.

Oh, I couldn't figure out how to email you, so #4 is speed limit.

Jaci said...

They must be scraping the bottom of the barrel for Hooters workers. Anyway, I think this is hilarious! Look at her pouting! (And look at her hair...ewww.)

Jodee, honey, did you really think you were going to win a new car just for selling mugs of beer? That's your JOB. Why would they give you a new car for doing it? Your boss rocks! I think Hooters should promote him.

The only thing I can think of to say is you have got to be kidding me - I mean honestly, really, is this what Hooters has come too - what has happened to the Pamela Anderson type? Hubby will be so disappointed - no more hooters for him

Kat said...

Oh, I remember this case. I think that when she settled, she could have bought herself several Toyotas and a Toy Yoda with her cash. There is another similar prank that was done by a radio station where they were giving away a hundred grand...but the winner found candy bars instead of cash...and sued.

(What do you think that Jodee is doing with her life these days?)

Heather said...

Oh my stars AND hearts. Poor Jodee isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. I guess I can see where she got confused. A toy Yoda is a really lame prize for a beer selling contest at Hooters.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Well, as much as poor Jodee chaps my hide because I can't stand frivolous lawsuits (and for the record - my friend in highschool was a Jodee... I think the double ee is a wish that that was their bra size.. because Jodee was more a -A) At ANY rate - given that they blindfolded her and took her out to the parking lot, they full on knew that that they were yanking her chain. And while it IS funny, it's not nice. But it's NOT worth a lawsuit.

CaraBee said...

Are we really surprised that a HOOTERS waitress wasn't the sharpest tool in the box? I don't think they do an IQ test on the application there. It's these kinds of lawsuits that drive me abso-freaking-lutely crazy! And the fact that she won just makes me sick.

Mama Dawg said...

That was hysterical.

Is that a cold sore on her lip?

I don't think Jodee needs support based on what you said and her A/P photo. Unless you meant emotional support which I still don't think she needs as much as psychological support.

I love Hooters. They have great wings.

Insane Mama said...

Maybe Jodee didn't mean to spell it that way, maybe it's her parents fault! But holy moly what the heck is wrong with her breasts?
She needs a lift bra for sure!

scargosun said...

I am willing to bet that Hooters completely led their staff on that it was, in fact, a car they were getting if they won. I doubt that any Hooters girl would compete for a toy Yoda. If this is the case, she defintely has a case and I expect her to be driving a new Toyota very soon.

Caroline said...

Oh the people in America and their crazy lawsuit lovin' selves. That is nuts I say...nuts! In fact, she looks like she dropped two peanuts down her shirt - sorry excuse for hooters. I got more than that and mine even shrunk after nursing. Pitiful.

Candid Carrie said...

Well, if Jodee's mama didn't bother figuring out the right way to spell her baby's name, I am guessing that Jodee may have actually seen the words Toy Yoda and still thought she was getting an automobile.

notsosahm said...

Sorry to be so harsh but she's an idiot for suing over embarassment. Just laugh at yourself, Jodee, and admit you were taken for a ride (pun intended). Put on your big girl panties (and your big girl bra) and take it like a woman.

Hillary and Russell Jordan said...

I am laughing my a** off right now! Both you (for posting this) and the Hooters manager (for the idea) are hysterical!!!

Melissa Lee said...

I think if you're going to work at Hooters then you better have the...hot wings...to back it up.

Melissa at Stretch Marks

PS. Have you commented me today? Cuz I can't tell over all my comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha.

Melissa said...

Okay, these are the kind of people I love......to laugh at. I mean really. Beer wench a life needs to get (YodaSpeak)....

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

I think that if she had won a contest selling beer at Hooters...with "hooters" like that...they should have given her the car..she's obviously good at her job.

Teri said...

I will be starting law school soon, and I promise, promise, promise never to get myself involved with cases like this. I'm just sayin'.

Debbie said...

Two things:

She allegedly worked at Hooters.

She spells her name "JodeeEEEE"

She's no Yoda...

Need we say more...

I'm just sayin...

PS I've been dyin to say "I'm just sayin" but don't want to copy you..."just sayin'" ;)

Nan said...

Too funny! My boys call Hooters... Pooters! Amen boys!!! (I introduced myself in a comment on the baby powder post).

Swirl Girl said...

I would question the validity of the lawsuit - Now if she was suing because they wouldn't hire her because of her surly 'tude or small 'frame'...then I could understand.

I would laugh this off and get a job at TGIFridays instead - But wait, understanding the english lanquage is a requirement there.

Angie said...

ROFLMAO! The look on poor Jodee's face says it all.

Angela said...

This reminds me of the defective thong on Heather's blog. Oh my.

You crack me up.

leezee52 said...

lol lol lol...I can't even comment!

WheresMyAngels said...

Odd, cause she is 26. Most Hooter girls are under the age of 20. How do I know this?? Because once a month, a staff and me have to take an individual I work with whom has disabilities to Hooters for lunch. WE are the only girls in there besides the Hooter's girls. It is a midlife crisis in there. All the girls are so young but they have been really nice so I no longer make fun of Hooters girls, even though it is hard.

So I am thinking that Hooters wanted her out, cause she was too old!
