Man Sues God. God Pulls Strings. God Walks Free.

The world is a very confusing place, which is why this sad man sued God. He was clearly so lost in this big ol' world that his mind decided to go away for a while and allow his body to file a lawsuit against an imaginary being. The child-like alliteration is the saddest part.

In September 2007, former state Sen. Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit against God in Nebraska's 4th Judicial District Court. Chambers, a political independent who served in the Legislature for 38 years before retiring in April, sought "a permanent injunction" to "cease harmful activities," claiming the defendant caused "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, [and] devastating droughts … resulting in the wide-spread death, destruction and terrorization of millions."
