That's gotta hurt!

It's always funny until someone loses an eye!

According to The Smoking Gun, a 52 year-old woman had a little incident with a thong. As she was trying to get a thong on, a decorative piece came off and somehow injured her eye.

God bless her! Fifty-two and able to wear a thong. Well, I hope she is.

Click HERE for the full story and the complaint filed with the court.

From the "ummm...that could hurt" file:

A cook in a New York restaurant apparently wanted to impress the in-laws or something. He was caught smuggling 15 frozen lobster tails. The lobster was stuffed in his pants and attached to his legs. Yeah. Is that a lobster in your pocket, or are you happy to see me?

He was fired and charged with the crime. Duh.


And finally--What do you do when you feel you haven't been trained well enough to do your job? You sue.

A 73-year-old man is suing his employer. You see, Mr. Gower-Smith is a custodian at an elementary school. It wasn't that the school was asking him to repair a boiler for which he had no skill. No. He isn't suing because he wasn't trained properly in how to work the many mechanical areas of the school.

Mr. Smith is suing because he asserts that he wasn't properly trained to use a stepladder. He was hurt pretty bad, and I hope he mends, but didn't he think to look at the directions that are usually on ladders?

Just a thought.

It is a shame when you want to hold others responsible when you are stupid.
