A Florida man’s lawsuit against Winn-Dixie Stores and a flower importer is seeking $15,000 in damages for a finger prick from a rose thorn.
Charles Imwalle, 41, of Lake Mary filed a lawsuit Monday against Winn-Dixie and Passion Growers LLC claiming he suffered pain, disfigurement, medical bills and lost wages after pricking his finger on a thorn from a rose he purchased from his local Winn-Dixie in February, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Thursday.


This dude is a real thorn in the side of the judicial system; frivolous lawsuits like this one make a mockery of the law.

Complaining about getting pricked by a thorn from a rose is like complaining that you bought a can of beans and it gave you a killer case of gas.

Because of nitwits like Imwalle florists will be forced to place a warning notice in a bouquet of roses that reads: Please exercise caution, thorns can prick your finger.
