Jodee Berry used to work as a waitress in a Hooters restaurant in Florida when she took part in a beer-sales competition. The big prize in the competition was supposed to be a Toyota, or so did Jodee think as the word was only spoken and never actually spelled. Jodee won the contest and was happily expecting to see her brand new car when she was led blindfolded to the parking lot. Imagine her surprise when she realized the “Toyota” was actually a “toy Yoda” and it was all part of an April Fool’s Joke that the restaurant had played on her.
However, Jodee didn’t find it the least bit funny and not only quit her job but also sued Hooters for moral damages. It was later revealed that the restaurant agreed to settle for an undisclosed sum of money but, according to rumors, it was more than enough for Jodee to buy a real Toyota. I guess the joke was on Hooters in the end.
