A Manhattan man raised his pinky to his lips and sued New York City, a bakery, two local hospitals, Kmart and a “Latina” dog owner for two undecillion dollars — more than all the money on planet Earth.
Anton Purisima, 62, filed the hand-scrawled lawsuit last month against those entities and pretty much anyone else he could think of. He seeks damages for “civil rights violations, personal injury, discrimination on national origin, retaliation, harassment, fraud, attempted murder, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and conspiracy to defraud,” the New York Post reports.
Purisima is representing himself in the hope that he can score the insane amount of money, which was written with a 2 and 36 zeros. It looks like this:
His claims range from an infected middle finger he suffered when he was bit by a “rabies-infected” dog on a bus, to a “Chinese couple” taking pictures of him at a hospital. He said no money in the world could satisfy him, so his damages are “priceless.”
Past that, it’s hard to figure out what exactly he’s suing for. His number isn’t listed, and he didn’t respond to calls for comment from reporters.
