    Yeah, "cat". Name's Pepé Le Pew, perhaps?

    It looks like you should be able to pick up the text of the story from here:
    Cigar Arson

    Or from many of the hits from here:
    a layer sues over a fire and box of cigars video - Google Search

    Basically a lawyer sues and wins vs an insurance company he insured his expensive cigars against for going up in smoke... and wins. It seems to be an old story that has been making the rounds for a number of years, and often used just to make a point during a speech.

    As I said, maybe, but only in the US of A I would suspect, to be even close to being true!!!

    PS: I didn't know that one had to be a FB member just in order to view one of their webpages or links.

    Sadly, most of what the public thinks that it knows about U.S. attorneys in not at all true.

    In fact, there was a very expensive misinformation campaign about attorneys, run by insurance companies, that the public just ate up. Have a look at this entertaining episode of Adam Ruins Everything:

    Adam Ruins Justice
    YouTube
    At 1:35 they start talking about the famous McDonalds "hot coffee" lawsuit.

    Bummer. It's been taken down from YouTube because they sold the series to a premium network. See if you can watch it here:

    Oh yes I remember that from a good while back.


    Brad Paisley Lyrics
    "The Cigar Song"

    Well I'm a sucker for fine Cuban cigars
    The problem is I can't afford 'em
    But last year I went and got myself a whole box
    And just to be safe I insured 'em

    [Chorus]
    I took out a policy against fire and theft
    And then I hurried home
    With a fifty-cent lighter I sat on my back steps
    And I smoked 'em one by one

    Two weeks later I went to see that insurance man
    And I handed in my claim
    With a straight face I told him that through a series of small fires
    They'd all gone up in flames

    [2nd Chorus]
    They reviewed my case and they had no choice
    But to pay me for what I'd done
    And I took that check and bought a whole new box
    And I smoked 'em one by one

    Two weeks later this detective shows up
    Tells me that company's pressin' charges
    One speedy trial later they locked me up
    On twenty-four separate counts of arson

    [3rd Chorus]
    And now I sit and I stare at a blank brick wall
    Lookin' back on what I've done
    To pass the time I've got some ten-cent cigars
    And I smoke 'em one by one
    Yeah, I smoke 'em one by one

    When I saw your "but only in the US of A I" I first read it as "US of Artificial Intelligence" Well, that's what it looked like and it dammed early for me!
    John.

    Sorry John, but you won't find much intelligence, artificial or real here in the US in the last 5 days. Just watch the news.
