Lawsuit: Defendant Breached a Duty Not to Shoot Bottle Rockets Out of His Bottom

Beer + fraternity = lawsuit:

A college student claims he was injured when a fraternity member in a "drunken stupor" decided "that it would be a good idea to shoot bottle rockets out of his anus," and did so, "but instead of launching, the bottle rocket blew up in the defendant's rectum, and this startled the plaintiff and caused him to jump back," and fall off the fraternity's deck.

The student is now suing the fraternity, Alpha Tau Omega, for failing to provide a railing for the deck as well as the frat brother who lit the rocket in question.

Prediction: Google will not be this young man's friend in the future.

I really think that anyone who files one of these ridiculous lawsuits should have "I'm your responsibility" tattooed on their forehead so others don't make the mistake of thinking he takes responsibility for his own stupid mistakes.

@Sharyn in Ireland it is often the case that the entrance to private land will have a sign stating that the owner exludes the duty of care to visitors. Like this

We actually need more of that in the world.

The thing is, however, that the fact this guy apparently got hit right in the rectum suggests that he was a participant rather then a bystander. As such it would be like a boxer suing another boxer for punching him.
