Sucks to Be Him

You go to the doctor. He tells you you have less than a year to live. Do you brood, cry, give up? No, you hock everything, quit your job, and party. But then, uh-oh, little error in the readings. You're basically healthy, and all you have left is the suit you planned to be buried in. So, just like Abe's in-laws below, you sue. The hospital claims he has no case. Like in "Animal House," "hey, you f--ked up, you trusted us." But I think they teach cases like this in law school (or they will be soon). I'm betting the movie rights will get him back on his feet even if that hospital turns out to be right . . . for a change.
