That Darned Martha Stewart & Her Football-Playing Turkeys!

We surely live in the land of the free-to-be-weird!

Strange claims in lawsuit against Martha Stewart

Bridgeport (AP)_ There are some very unusual claims in a lawsuit filed against Martha Steward in Bridgeport Superior court involving football playing turkeys and other strange things.

Jonathan Lee Riches, a South Carolina prisoner with a penchant for suing celebrities, claims Stewart violated his civil rights in a real estate deal.

In a two-page, handwritten lawsuit Riches seeks more than 3 million dollars in damages from Stewart. Riches says he will donate any damages he collects to television cook Rachael Ray.

Riches claims he tried to buy Stewart's estate in Westport earlier this year for the three-point five million dollars in pennies.

He claims the real estate listing for the property falsely claimed it was painted with Dutch Boy paint. The suit also states that while touring the property (although records indicate he would have been in prison at the time) Riches contracted poison ivy, was scratched by pricker bushes and fell in a groundhog hole.

Riches also claims he saw Stewart's turkeys playing football with Michael Vick's jerseys and that the birds attacked him.

Only in America.
