Actual Lawsuit: Man Fired For Penis Drawn On Business Card

Throughout the years, the United States has seen many landmark court decisions: Brown v. Board of Education, Roe v. Wade and so on. In 2014, we can look forward to Teton Motors v. That Guy Who May Or May Not Have Drawn A Dick.

Here’s what went down: Last year, David A. Dell was fired from his job at a car dealership in Jackson, Wyoming, because a female customer complained that the business card he gave her had a penis drawn on it. Believing Dell’s termination to be justified, the Teton Motors management assumed they wouldn’t have to pay him unemployment benefits.

However, Dell argued that he was eligible for unemployment because he didn’t know the penis was on the business card, and therefore it wasn’t his fault. Wyoming’s Unemployment Insurance Commission sided with Dell, so Teton Motors filed a lawsuit over the decision.

This means a judge on the 9th District Court will have to ask himself, “Do we really want to live in a world where a penis drawing can ruin a man’s financial future? Whether or not he even drew it?” The weirdest thing about this case is that it’s not an episode of “Guy Court.”
