Ex-Hooters Waitress Outraged Over Toy Yoda

Former Hooters waitress settles toy Yoda suit

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — A former waitress has settled her lawsuit against Hooters, the restaurant that gave her a toy Yoda doll instead of the Toyota she thought she had won.

Jodee Berry, 27, won a beer sales contest last May at the Panama City Beach Hooters. She believed she had won a new Toyota and happily was escorted to the restaurant’s parking lot in a blindfold.

But when the blindfold was removed, she found she had won a new toy Yoda — the little green character from the Star Wars movies.

David Noll, her attorney, said Wednesday that he could not disclose the settlement’s details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and “pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants.”

After the stunt, Berry quit the restaurant and filed a lawsuit against Gulf Coast Wings, the restaurant’s corporate owner, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation.

The restaurant’s manager, Jared Blair, has said the whole contest was an April Fools’ joke.

B’Man: My buddy TR sent this to me and my first reaction was to say that there is no way this woman worked at a Hooters. Look at her tits.

Secondly, I have heard of people looking like their dogs, but this chick looks just like her toy Yoda. How weird is that?

  1. I can’t believe she won the lawsuit! She should have lost and be forced to have the word “idiot” tattooed on her forehead so that any future employers would see her coming and NOT hire her! This is one of the many things that is wrong with our country…. Anybody can sue over anything. What ever happened to having “A Sense of Humor”?

  2. Wait, so “she filed a lawsuit against Gulf Coast Wings, the restaurant’s corporate owner, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation.”

    I reckon having tits like that and working at hooters is a breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation.

    • Watch what you say dude…you’ll get sued. Her attorney will comment she can now have any boob job she wants.

    • You should have seen her when she first went to work for Hooters. She didn’t just work her ass off for that Toyota. What a rotten idea for a joke! Imagine what it did for the morale of all the waitresses competing for the car. I think the court should have awarded her a Lexus just on general principle.

  3. From what I understand, the boss even said he didn’t know what kind, if it was to be a van or car or truck.

    Honestly, it’s funny I’ll admit. But I totally understand why she was so pissed. It sux to work your butt off in hopes of a good prize to not only find out you’ve been pranked but given something completely useless and worthless for all your trouble and effort (I mean they should have at least given her something for her troubles as well as the “toy yoda”. You know like, here is the joke prize. And here is somemthing maybe not as good but something you can actually use).

    Not the kind fo work environment I would want to work at where that’s how they value your efforts, by getting your hopes up and then dashing them and not even giving you really anything for your troubles.
