Soup Nazi Lawsuit

NO STOCK FOR YOU!!

0217_originalsoupman
The NYC soup kitchen made famous by "Seinfeld's" Soup Nazi has an enormous problem with its stock ... a problem that has triggered a million dollar lawsuit.

It seems Soupman needed some quick cash, and a woman named Penny Hart came to the rescue.  She claims in a new lawsuit she loaned Soupman a ton of cash ... in all she says she's owed more than $1.5 mil.

Hart says Soupman had 2 options -- either pay her back the money or give her 500,000 shares of stock in the company.

Short story -- Hart says Soupman screwed her and she's been stewing ever since.  Now Hart wants payback.

A rep for Soupman says Penny will get the stock as soon as she holds up her end of the bargain.  The rep didn't explain what she's supposed to do.

Loaning money to a soup kitchen is bisquey business.

A soup kitchen is where they hand out free food. This Soupman is now a chain restaurant. It just serves lousy processed food. The original Soupman I don't think even exists any more. Maybe the original restaurant had good soup but the chain soup wasn't that good.

They didn't have a temperamental chef but illegal looking immigrants giving you bad attitude with your soup.
