It’s all Bacardi’s fault…

Woman Claims Bacardi Rum is Dangerous

MIAMI (AP) – July 26, 2006 – A woman who says she was severely burned at a Miami night club four years ago is suing Bacardi, claiming the company’s rum is dangerous and defective.

The lawsuit says a bartender was pouring shots when a customer lit a menu on fire and placed it in the stream of alcohol. A bottle of Bacardi 151 that was being used to pour the shots turned into a flame thrower.
The woman says she suffered second and third degree burns and was permanently disabled and disfigured.

Miami-based Bacardi USA hasn’t commented yet on the suit.



Damn Bacardi for making yummy alcoholic things and damn chemistry for making alcohol flammable.

I’m amazed she didn’t also sue Mr. Wizard, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Smokey the Bear.

Let me see – she’s at a bar that is full of alcohol which is, by nature, flammable. That a bartender happened to be pouring alcohol is not important – that’s his job. However, what was a customer doing setting a menu on fire?

And a bar that uses paper menus is pretty much asking for it.

My question is this – why didn’t she sue the dude with the fire fetish?
