      Fair enough, I recognize that you’re joking. However I must say:
      The public perception of the McDonald’s case is mostly based on lies told by the press.

      got the following info from a couple of different websites

      “I wanted to take the top off the coffee to put cream and sugar in,” Liebeck told a local news station at the time. “So I put the cup between my knees to steady it [as I tried] to get the top off.”

      “And after that,” says Tiano, “she started screaming.”

      The coffee spilled on Liebeck’s lap, resulting in second- and third-degree burns over 16 percent of her body. She went into shock and was hospitalized for a week, undergoing numerous skin graft operations.

      “I’m a nurse, and I was horrified by the type of injuries that she had sustained,” said Liebeck’s daughter-in-law, Barbara Liebeck.

      Liebeck experienced were more than just a little uncomfortable. As her doctor confirmed, she endured third-degree burns (the worst you can get) in her lap and had to be hospitalized for eight days. During that time, she received skin grafts and other painful procedures. Plus, she was left with permanent scarring

      In the end, the jury awarded Liebeck $200,000 in compensatory damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages, even though she didn’t ask for it.
