Legal briefs?

My plans for the day have changed. I woke up to rainy weather and have had to scratch plans to do some yard work. So, I sat down to my computer with a cup of Java intent on catching up on some news... and I stumbled on a report that just screams out “Make fun of this” if you don’t throw up first.

From the “Are You Kidding Me?” files:

If I say the words "thong injury", what immediately comes to mind? (After a good measure of giggling, that is).

An aggravated case of haemorrhoids? A case of massive embarrassment and subsequent need for therapy should you put it on backwards and wear it to a lingerie party?

Had you come up with eye injury? I didn’t think so.

Add thongs to the list of things your mother said will poke your eye out...

Who knew your mother was right when she said that kind of stuff would make you go blind?!

Let’s imagine the “Consumer Protection Warning Label and Instructions for Use” information that will now be required for “decorative thongs”:

CAUTION. Keep product away from morons and slime ball solicitors. If you try to squeeze into a small size just to make you feel better about yourself thus straining the garment beyond it’s tested elasticity in an attempt to defy the laws of physics, you will be made fun of by countless individuals on the world wide web.

Just so you know, I have since inspected my lingerie drawer (wearing appropriate personal protection equipment) and can say with great certainty that my under things are safe... whether or not they may cause those who view me in them to suffer heart palpitations however has not been duly established. I’ll conduct extensive testing (I need a test group)and let you know.

I say her punishment for filing such a frivolous lawsuit and subjecting us to the mental image of her donning a thong should be that she has to wear granny underwear from this moment on. I should sue HER for mental anguish. Sheesh!

oh my! This is just unbelievable! You nailed it Ann! The craziness of this lawsuit and then your opinions...I laughed and laughed!

Next thing....she's going to say the hook and eye combo on the back of her bra (if she even wears one) pulled out the hair on her back!

Bwhahahahha! What an animal!

Bond said...

They should both have their pictures posted everywhere under the headline "A**HATS"

Anndi said...

Julie: Don't insult animals like that. PETA will sue you for defamation. :P

Bond: Are you saying she actually tried to use the thong as a hat? That would actually make more sense.

Akelamalu said...

Unbelievable! Whatever next?

Charles Gramlich said...

I agree, lets have a class action suit against this woman and her lawyer.

doggybloggy said...

this is so stupid......I am embarassed for these people

Anndi said...

Akelamalu: Good question... maybe we can come up with bogus lawsuits for a next installment.

Charles: Sounds like a plan.

DB: They're on the lower end of the gene pool indeed.

Jeff B said...

Oh the laungage I just used!

I'm really at a loss for words for this pair of idiots.

I am really glad that her lawyer (and I use that term loosely) told all of us towards the end of the interview that, "this could happen to anybody." The next time I reach into my undies drawer I'll have to be a little more selective about what I pick out.

Jay said...

I don't think people realize just how dangerous underwear can be. Personally I avoid this risk by just not wearing any and I highly recommend that you do the same. ;-)

Anndi said...

Jeff: Just remember to wear your safety glasses when putting on your, um.. boxers or briefs?

Jay: Ooh! Commando! Interesting... ;p

Dana said...

Do you know what style she bought?? That would make an amazing HNT!

Anonymous said...

ROFL.... I needed a good laugh!
Scary thing is she's serious and might even get some big bucks out of it......
Hope your doing well and that your having a fantastic Monday.
Luv Lesley

CrystalChick said...

I'm still shaking my head over this one. WOW.
If I blasted my eye out from trying to squeeze my fat butt into faulty?? underwear I'd certainly NOT tell anyone. sheesh

Anonymous said...

I can't watch that cuz I know it's going to make me nuts. For every idiot there's an attorney willing to agree...for a fee of course...gggrrrrrrrrrrr...

Meribah said...

Some peeps should never wear thongs...this woman is one of them!

Ron said...


And your punishment for this woman ROCKS!


And I LOVE Jay's comment!!!
