    Thonged in the eye by dainties, she claims

    Now that's an eye-popping thong.

    A 52-year-old California woman is suing lingerie giant Victoria's Secret, charging she was hit in the eye by a decorative metallic object that flew off a thong she was trying on.

    Macrida Patterson, a traffic officer for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, claims her cornea was severely damaged in the underwear mishap.

    Patterson's lawyer, Jason Buccat, told thesmokinggun.com that a "design flaw" with the skimpy garment is to blame.

    52-year-olds should most likely not be shopping for thongs at Victoria's Secret.

    She may be a goddess, I don't know. But if it's tight enough that it snaps off a metal dangly thing, perhaps you should shop elsewhere.

    I saw her on CNN, she should have been shopping at Lane Bryant.

    Yeah, how 'bout that? Buy some butt floss that's been in someone else's crack. No thanks.

    At my day job, we had a story about the increasing incidences of diseases related to thong wearing. For the sake of keeping down breakfast, we left out the age of the woman used in the anecdotal lede:

    Two words you don't often see used together in a family newspaper.

    I'm waiting for the next lawsuit. The one where the other shoppers at VS had their corneas severely damaged by a 52-year-old trying on a thong.
