If you thought American legal system jumped the shark with the so-called "Twinkie Defense," just sink your teeth into this tasty morsal:
Connecticut police say a 28-year-old man caught speeding in a 1993 BMW through a small town is blaming his transgression on an errant Oreo cookie.
The man says he was dunking the sandwich cookie, when he dropped it into the milk, and was fishing it out when he lost control of the car. But before he'll get to blame his problems on an Oreo prosecutors say he'll have to answer some other questions, like why he was on the road when his license was allegedly under suspension. Read more ridiculous lawsuits.
