Thong related injuries have got to be pretty rare. The article below is from the consumerist.com, a great site for all things consumer protection related.
Woman Sues Victoria’s Secret Because Of Thong Injury [Victorias Secret]: “
Macrida Patterson, age 52, is suing Victoria’s Secret, claiming that because of a design problem, a decorative metallic piece affixed to her thong became airborne and struck her in the eye as she was attempting to put on the garment, according to The Smoking Gun. The thong is called a ‘low-rise v-string’ from their ‘Sexy Little Thing’ line (pictured left). The injury has supposedly caused damage to her cornea, causing her to miss work and ‘will be affecting her the rest of her life.’ Details, inside…
The article says,
Patterson’s lawyer, Jason Buccat, told TSG that a ‘design problem’ caused the decorative piece to come loose and strike Patterson in the eye, causing damage to her cornea. He added that the eye injury, which caused Patterson to miss a few days of work, will be ‘affecting her the rest of her life.’ Patterson is a traffic officer with L.A.’s Department of Transportation. Prior to the lawsuit’s filing, Victoria’s Secret officials asked to examine the garment and the decorative piece, but that request was rejected by Patterson’s counsel. For those unfamiliar with ‘v-strings,’ the undergarment is the Victoria’s Secret variant on the ‘g-string,’ which has long been favored in the battle against visible panty lines.
We hope that in the future Victoria’s Secret offers some sexy OSHA-approved safety glasses to go with their projectile underwear.

Now That Is A First Place Mullet!: “Now That Is A First Place Mullet!
Now That Is A First Place Mullet!
That is the kind of mullet that would generally win a Douche Bag of the Week title but the kid is only 3 so I am going to give him a pass. Let’s be honest that hair is the parents’ fault. No 3 year old understands the social consequences of rolling around town with a hairdo that says, “Business up front, party in rear.”

Apparently the local Best Buy has an unbeatable service option for you. Looks like they will come to your house and insert your game to your 360 for you. Wonder how much they would charge to turn it on and put the controller in my hand?
Fie on anyone who says these signs are misplaced. This is a revolutionary new service that will do for game installation what Game Genie did for gameplay. Just you wait and see…
Cruel but hilarious. Check out the link below for some harsh critisism of art by kids.
More crappy children’s art work.: “More crappy children’s art work
The premise: I can draw better, spell better, and run faster than your kids. So being that my skills are obviously superior to those of children, I’ve taken the liberty to judge art work done by other kids on the internet. I’ll be assigning a grade A through F for each piece:”
Yet another connection between Lost and Kurt Vonnegut in tonight’s episode. When Michael is in his apartment and his gun jams, the game show contestant on TV in the background answers “is it Kurt Vonnegut.” Vonnegut’s slaughterhouse five was indirectly referenced in the episode two weeks ago when Desmond became “unstuck in time.” It will be interesting to see if any more connections arise as the series progresses.
