    $13 million lawsuit lost as Red Bull drinkers don't grow wings?

    Daily Mail:

    Red Bull website crashes over $10 refund offer as FOUR MILLION log on... and now the money's running out too

    • The Red Bull site was visited 4.6 million times in the last 24 hours and that many of the claims are most likely fraudulent
    • Due to the mass amount of claims the settlement is likely to offer applicants just $3 after originally promising something like $10
    • Red Bull GmbH settled two class-action lawsuits this week
    • They agreed to pay $13million because their slogan 'Red Bull gives you wings' isn't true
    Red Bull's Wings (snopes.com)

    Claim: Red Bull lost a $13 million lawsuit after promising that its customers would grow wings.

    FALSE

    Between this, Lady Godiva and the Zombie accident, I feel like I somehow logged into April 1.
