I Would Expect to See Something Like This On the Bar Exam

Mesa was working at a Pix store in Deltona in August when he and a co-worker decided to play practical jokes. They put eggs in beer cartons, and Mesa thought it would be funny to urinate into a drink, according to arrest reports.

He admitted urinating into a Mountain Dew and placing it back into the refrigerator, authorities said.

The victim, a foreman with a Daytona Beach construction company, became suspicious of the drink after he chugged it and vomited three or four times. He settled a civil complaint with the store for an undisclosed amount of money before a lawsuit was filed.

What Torts? Discuss all relevant claims and defenses. Don't forget Respondeat Superior and Res Ipsa Loquitur.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to ensure that all the seals on my bottles of Pepsi are intact....
