Girls: wild; customers: riled; lawsuit: filed
The producers of "Girls Gone Wild" have to pay a $1.1 million settlement for sending people "Girls Gone Wild" videos they didn't order and then not refunding the shipping costs when the people returned them.
Sorry, people who intentionally bought "Girls Gone Wild" videos don't qualify for refunds, no matter how much they feel they deserve them.
(By the way, if you're wondering how you wind up with a sexually-explicit video that you didn't order, it's because you signed up with one of those "continuity" programs that say "get this great DVD for 99 cents and then get lots of other DVDs and videos and pay for them whether you want them or not and there's no easy way to cancel the program ha ha ha." Which is certainly not a clever thing to do, and to some extent you deserve what you get, but no one deserves "Girls Gone Wild" videos. I think it's in the Geneva Convention somewhere.)
