Projectile Underwear

Straight from the Consumerist:

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.”

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.

Umm, right…

He’s No Michael Jordan

Let’s agree that Kobe Bryant is one of the best, if not the best, player currently in the NBA league. But he is no Michael Jordan and those comparisons really need to stop. Michael Jordan would not have allowed his team to lose a two dozen point lead on his home court. Michael Jordan would not have been bitch slapped along with the rest of his team like what happened last night in Boston. No… Michael would have put the team on his back and willed them to victory. Sadly, Kobe’s back isn’t that strong. Maybe he should buy a big shiny ring for all of the Lakers fans as an apology…
