    2nd woman sues Bacardi after allegedly being injured by flaming rum

    ASSOCIATED PRESS


    MIAMI, July 31 A second woman sued wine and spirit maker Bacardi Monday claiming she was seriously burned by flaming rum during a night out with a friend, who has also sued the company.

    Agata Macierzynska is a friend of Danielle Alleyne, who had previously sued the company over an August 2002 incident at a Miami night club. Alleyne, of Miami, sued the company last week. Both women say they suffered serious burns after being hit by the flaming rum and claim in their lawsuits that one of Bacardi's products is defective and dangerous. Both were filed in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court.
    The company has said its product is clearly labeled with warnings against setting fire to it. The Miami-based company said Monday it had not been served with Macierzynska's lawsuit and could not comment on it.
    A bartender, who was not identified in either lawsuit, was pouring shots of Bacardi 151 when a customer lit a menu on fire and placed it in the stream of alcohol. The bottle that was being used to pour the shots turned into a flame thrower and sent flaming rum all over Macierzynska, the lawsuit said.
    Macierzynska suffered second and third degree burns on her face, neck, arms, underarms, ears, back and hands and is permanently disabled and disfigured, the lawsuit said.
    Alleyne suffered similar burns, her lawsuit said.

    So rather than track down the dumbass who actually lit the thing, she's suing the company, the bartender, and probably the bar. If she managed to set herself on fire with gasoline, would she sue the station and the supplier?

    Stupidity irks me.

    The answer to your question is yes...

    Does that mean I can sue them for the damn headache I get everytime I get drunk off of 151?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
