US woman sues over exploding thong

Flying v-string provokes corneal trauma

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A 52-year-old US woman has filed suit against Victoria's Secret claiming that an attempt to spice up her underwear drawer ended in corneal trauma after a "decorative metallic piece" flew off an example of the lingerie giant's "Sexy Little Thing" low-rise v-string as she was slipping into the come-hither apparel and gave her an eyeful.

That's according to The Smoking Gun, which notes that Los Angeles Department of Transportation traffic officer Macrida Patterson's lawsuit, presented on 9 June in Los Angeles Superior Court, is seeking unspecified monetary damages over the "design problem".

Her lawyer, Jason Buccat, said that the injury caused by the flying v-string will affect his client for "the rest of her life". Victoria's Secret apparently asked to examine the offending smalls prior to the initiation of litigation, but Patterson's counsel declined.

Those of you wondering just what on God's Green Earth a v-string is can find enlightenment here. Yup, we know - you'll never look at a female LA traffic officer the same way again. ®

And the IT angle?

There is no IT angle. Yes, we're turning into the Sun. Yes, we'll all go to hell. Thank you.
