US couple sue over McNudes

You can be the bun, and I can be the burger, girl

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A US woman who sent some nude snaps of herself to her hubby's mobe got a nasty shock when they turned up online - complete with her name, address and telephone number.

According to the BBC, Phillip Sherman accidently left his phone at a McDonald's in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on 5 July. Staff helpfully promised to hold onto the device until he could pick it up, but the offending snaps of missus Tina magically appeared on the internet, after which she "began receiving offensive calls and text messages about the pictures".

The couple are now demanding damages of $3m from the burger chain. They say they were forced to move house as a result of the leak, and are suing "McDonald's Corporation, the owner of the franchise involved and the restaurant's manager" for "emotional distress, embarrassment and damage to their reputations".

They're also pitching for loss of earnings and the cost of relocating. The pictures have now been removed from the unnamed website which exposed the unclothed Mrs Sherman to the unwashed masses. ®
