An Olive Pit Basically Destroyed Dennis Kucinich’s Life


Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich “sustained serious permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures” after chomping down on an unpitted olive hidden in a wrap he ordered from the congressional cafeteria nearly three years ago, he claims in a $150,000 lawsuit against the cafeteria’s operators. He also suffered from a vague “loss of enjoyment.” Kucinich is entitled to his day in court, but he has to be careful — people might start to not take him seriously. [Gawker]
