Medical Doctor Sues Restaurant for Not Teaching Him Proper Way to Eat an Artichoke

Print comment Post Comments
Arturo Carvajal, a doctor with a family practice in Hollywood, Florida, has filed a lawsuit against Houston's Restaurant after injuring himself with an artichoke.

"It takes a sophisticated diner to be familiar with the artichoke," says Carvajal's lawyer, Marc R. Ginsberg. "People might think that as a doctor, he'd know how to eat one. But he was thinking it was like a food he might have eaten in his native Cuba, where you eat everything on the plate."

In a court filing, Carvajal claims his server "fail[ed] to explain the proper method of consuming an artichoke", namely that the "outside portion of the leaf should not be eaten; rather, only the inside portion of the leaf was safely digestible."

Somehow, the good doctor managed to get through the entire, armadillo-like outside of the vegetable, after which he suffered
"severe abdominal pain and discomfort," ultimately resulting in "disability, disfigurement, mental anguish," and "loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life".

Attention Dr. Carvajal: candy bars need to be unwrapped before eating, too. Soda cans need to be opened first. And lobster shells should be cracked to get to the meat. Those shells are about as easily digestible as the outer leaves of an artichoke. Just a heads-up.

P.S. How the hell did you get through medical school, man?
