Woman Sues Over Radio Gag Contest

This is too rich: a Kentucky radio station runs a promotion telling listeners that the tenth caller during the May 25 "American Idol" finale would win "a hundred grand." What they didn't mention is that by "hundred grand," they meant the Nestlé candy bar. Now, she's pissed and is suing for the full amount.

Left out by this article in the Lexington Herald-Leader is that more than likely, the station was inspired by a web animation featuring the exact same gag.
