For those who know the Simpsons episode "Bart gets an elephant", in which Bart wins on a radio game-show and the prize was either the prize money or an "elephant", so Bart insists on getting the (non existing) elephant because it was offered.

Well this has happened in real life: NRJ radio was offering as a prize World Cup Tickets or a "pony". The tenth caller was aloud to "decide" on which prize to take and this person, a grand mother of a little girl, chose to take the pony. The moderator told her that the pony "was at the hairdressers", so she should just take the tickets. The grand mother however is not giving up and she is taking them to court.

Homer: Marge, it takes two to lie. One to lie and one to listen.

and I hope she wins. Those radio people should know it's just a matter of time until a person chooses the animal.

Avoid hangovers, stay drunk.

False Advertising... They offered the pony, she wanted the pony, she gets the pony.

I hope she wins also, she is probably trying to give her grand daughter a gift she always wanted, and the radio station is trying to get out of it.... they offered the pony, so give her the pony!!!

I also love how Homer Simpson is the embodiment of everything you don't want to be, but yet I've heard countless numbers of people say Homer is their hero!!! (see my profile!!)
