Restaurant Settles Suit After Man Discovers a Condom in His Soup

California restaurant chain Claim Jumper just settled a lawsuit brought on by a man who found a condom in his French onion soup. That sounds nasty, doesn't it?

Philip Hodousek was eating at a branch of the restaurant in Orange County when he found something very, um, unsavory in his lunch. Here's what the trial brief says.

Suddenly, he felt what he believed was tough cheese on one side of this mouth. When he could not chew it into pieces, Philip commented to his family that it felt like rubber. He then spit it out, spooned it onto a napkin, at which time his wife said, 'Oh my God, it's a condom.'

There is nothing worse than having a random condom in your mouth, right?

Hodousek thought it was so gross he sued Claim Jumper (which sounds more like something you would call someone who perpetrated insurance fraud rather than a restaurant). A judge ordered that they settle the claim and after three days of negotiations, they have. Neither side is disclosing how much Hodousek will get for the incident. But the chain also apologized for telling the media that there hadn't been a condom in the soup, which is what they'd claimed early on. Usually it's people arguing about whether or not the condom broke, not whether one existed at all.
