Friday Funny: Steamy Pile of Lawsuit

A mom has filed a $100 claim against the city of Norwalk, Connecticut, after her one-year-old son stepped in dog feces on city property.

"A New York woman who took her family to visit the Maritime Aquarium has filed a $100 claim against the city, saying her child's shoes, along with the entire outing, were ruined when her 1-year-old stepped in dog feces early last month outside the Maritime Garage."

"Norwalk officials will deny the claim, city attorney M. Jeffry Spahr said."

"'The official response is her claim is denied and poop happens,' he said."

"'I didn't ask for anything crazy, I asked for reimbursement for a pair of shoes,' she said, in defending her claim. 'The person who was working (at the parking garage) can verify it did actually happen.'"
