Florida Woman Joycelyn Bryant of Orlando is already facing felony charges for her dank lasagna. Now she’s facing a lawsuit from one of the wedding guests as well.

Back in February, Jocelyn’s catering service, Joycelyn’s Southern Kitchen, was working a wedding in Longwood, just north of Orlando. First responders showed up after a wedding guest called 911 because he was “feeling weird.” Other guests also began to feel the effects and according to Fox 34 “At least one guest was taken to the hospital.” Deputies collected food and after lab testing it was shown that the lasagna has THC in it. Bryant, and the bride Danya Glenny, were both arrested and charged with delivery of marijuana, culpable negligence and breaking the Florida anti-tampering act. Not the groom. My guess is he wasn’t in on the ‘joke’.

Now one person is suing. As reported by Click Orlando, “Virginia Ann Taylor-Svoboda, filed a lawsuit against Bryant, which says the caterer knowingly allowed the food to be served while laced with marijuana. Taylor-Svoboda became immediately ill and suffered serious, permanent injuries from the marijuana poisoning, according to the lawsuit. Court documents show she is seeking more than $30,000 in damages.”

I agree, giving edibles to someone who doesn’t know is wrong. But claiming you suffered serious and permanent injury from marijuana poisoning seems a bit of a stretch. And $30,000 for what was probably an ill fated joke? Hate to see an Orlando Florida woman business and livelihood destroyed like that. Is marijuana poisoning a real thing?

Orlando Waffle House Night Shift Is Undefeated, Florida Woman Gets Upside Down Thrown Out Of The Restaurant

This is everything I expect from a Waffle House video. And seeing it come from Orlando means it’s some Flo Grown Florida Woman goodness. On one hand, I’m a little sad she didn’t get the whole event on video. We just got the end result. But it’s good. There’s so much to unpack with this video, but a personal note first. Corporate sent me a link of ‘journalistic ethics’ that I’m supposed to follow. Right. Ain’t nothing in that guide that can prepare me for a Waffle House video.

So let’s begin with ‘why is she upside down?’ Best I can figure is that she didn’t go easy. Waffle House night shift employees got hands. She’s lucky she’s still conscious. Scattered, covered and smothered right out the door. Next up – no shoes. Easy, she’s a Florida woman so there’s only a 50/50 chance she was wearing shoes when she got there.

The real question is, when are folks gonna learn to stop trying these Waffle House employees?! That night shift stay ready for any and all smoke. It seems to be part of their training. I think we covered this in an earlier video. So what’s the full story? Fortunately for us, @queenofthethots69 did a follow up video to narrate the whole adventure. It’s pretty amazing. I can picture the whole thing in my mind while it goes down.

  • She’s one of America’s greatest storytellers.


    Replying to @jugbandjubilee here’s the context y’all are asking for. she had what was coming to her, hopefully she learned her lesson. DONT PUT HANDS ON PEOPLE, especially Waffle House employees. Also no he did not throw her on the ground, he set her down on her feet outside.

  • This guy is still one of my faves

  • And there's this fight from Texas over Christmas

    Watch how well the employee handles the flying chair.
