A Charlotte, North Carolina man, having purchased a case of rare, very
 expensive cigars, insured them against ... get this ... fire. Within a
 month, having smoked his entire stockpile of fabulous cigars, and
 having yet to make a single premium payment on the policy, the man
filed a claim against the insurance company.
 In his claim, the man stated that he had lost the cigars in "a series
 of small fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the
obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in a normal
fashion. The man sued... and won!
 In delivering his ruling, the judge stated that since the man held a
 policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were
 insurable, and also guaranteed that it would insure the cigars against
 fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire,"
 it was obligated to compensate the insured for his loss.

 Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance
 company accepted the judge's ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the
 rare cigars he lost in "the fires." After the man cashed his check,
 however, the insurance company had him arrested ... on 24 counts of
 arson! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous
 case being used as evidence against him, the man was convicted of
 intentionally burning the rare cigars and sentenced to 24 consecutive
 one year terms!
