Enacting more because some people -- -- -- heart attacks and other health incidents and just didn't dot.
So you tell me Randy whether there's any potential lawsuit against that restaurant and or.
Can can the public health officials step in and try to shut this place down.
And yes warnings on cigarette packs smoking can kill you labels on prescriptions.
Don't operate heavy machinery.
Pick anything you want McDonald's coffee -- this cut may be hot.
It's all about notice and when you try this case you go ladies and gentlemen on your opening statement.
The name of this place is the heart attack -- Thank you cross examination of the owner please tell the jury the name of your establishment the heart attack -- Thank you know further questions this man is on notice.
It was clear to him that this could happen it's happened it's happened before.
That's the end of the store you don't really.
Shop owner was on notice that people could die and were dying that he could face liability but -- he's -- point to those signs the people eat.
Inpatient and how I think it's I think it hospital patient out after they walk past these signs.
Seeing these that was as bad for your help right begging you just made my case because the name of the triple bypass burger quite a burger.
-- -- to the people who are putting that -- I ate him in there now and you know.
Isn't that case they'll get on we don't -- people dot but it you're going to consume in a single meal enough calories to cover you for a week.
You I met again.

That that's suicide by -- -- -- you nobody was forcing him -- you.
He was chewing on his own there is no liability on the part of the restaurant here -- it at the owner John bass so comes out Randy and says.
I told -- if you keep eating like this it's gonna -- he's the only person I know was at the restaurant more than I was he was here every darn day.
So how I mean the owner what can.
It is the owner in his doctor gear his in his weaknesses -- -- gear they're Wheeling the people out to the cars would decide what more -- And -- NFL players where football helmets we've talked about this before what John is talking about -- something called assumption of the risk where.
-- you're on notice you should know better.
Bought assumption of the risk stops when someone has superior knowledge or may not be telling everybody everything.
Do we really expect these people to recognize that they could actually drop.
-- -- just like the NFL just like the NFL assumption of the risk it's not going to work here.
-- -- it's no secret that obesity pills heart is -- and then number one killer in America no secret we don't even newest flash sport but if you -- and you voluntarily consume it.
That kind of food on a regular basis we're playing with fire and it's evident.
From that -- can you make an argument I mean I'm sure Randy and -- air council like him would.
That that that making light event like this making such a joke of it is actually downplaying the health hazard.
As this owner did does not only the presentation at the restaurant but look at the commercial.
But -- the commercial he put out.
Don't deliver results.
But I've made incredible progress on the heart attack grill diet a couple of months ago I was wearing these.
No dangerous young Leo syndrome I personally guarantee a stable upward progression -- body weight.
While you're enjoying great taste in foods like a double bypass burger.
And flat liner Fries.
Along with the cold beer and cigarette it's a diet program that you could stick to for a life.
By the way -- we believe that that the first man in -- commercial was the first unofficial spokesperson who.
Age 29 a heart attack.
There is no question that the fact that they're making light of it.
Cuts the legs out from any argument.
That -- serious and that people should understand that they could dot cigarette commercials.
I can't remember the last so -- so somebody make a joke about that the NFL players no jokes about that.
Jokes here no way no how does someone think after watching these commercials and seeing the jokes that it that -- made that they could actually die from eating a hamburger.
Like I it'll come on -- I thought it was a shtick but the thing is John of their order coming up says.
-- I'm no different from Burger King or McDonald's you know that the that one -- -- but I'm serving the same stuff.
And I hate I'm no worse not worse or better than those restaurant owners -- he's giving new meaning to the term supersize me that's for sure but again -- It's about personal responsibility.
