Pancake flap: Aunt Jemima heirs seek Dough

Born a slave in Kentucky in 1834, Nancy Green was the first Aunt Jemima "Mammy."

Nearly a century has gone by and Aunt Jemima no longer resembles a servant, having swapped her red bandanna for pearls and soft curls in 1989.

Now a lawsuit claims that Green's heirs as well as the descendants of other black women who appeared as Aunt Jemima deserve $2 billion and a share of future revenue from sales of the popular brand.

The federal suit, filed in Chicago in August by two great-grandsons of Anna S. Harrington, says that she and Green were key in formulating the recipe for the nation's first self-rising pancake mix, and that Green came up with the idea of adding powdered milk for extra flavor.

"Aunt Jemima has become known as one of the most exploited and abused women in American history," said D.W. Hunter, one of Harrington's great-grandsons...

That article is positively griddled, I mean riddled, with puns....
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

How about his descendants?  They need to get in on that billion-dollar suit.  ::)

Yes, you can wire the money directly to my account.  I've sent you several emails.  Check your spam folder. :D

Bank transactions are too literalistic ... Trees is better.

Which transaction?

My question was "How do I become a Billionaire?" and the process wasn't codified until you find the appropriate source of money.

I don't think you did ask this question, but even if you did. It is a secret. I can't tell you.

I do not have a money tree to give you, but I have a money-tree-sapling to sell for $50. It will take about 10 years after initial planting to grow to maturity and start producing money, but the investment will be well worth it! And I promise you your money back if it does not produce any money within the first thirteen years.
