Pork chop shoes

Pork chop shoes results in a lawsuit in Australia. A man who slipped on a grease trail left by pork chop shoes in a pub is awarded £23,000. I guess Nike better think twice before they release their filet mignon basketball shoes. What would be their marketing campaign?

Double post. I can't find the link because Search is timing out for me. It was a few days ago, I think.

Search keeps on timing out for me so I skimmed the archives. I either passed right by it or perhaps Matt took it off. Dunno.

this article is much funnier

especially:

Lucock returned a short time later wearing a pair of pork chops, which he had won in a raffle earlier, tied to his feet.

As the pork chop shoes disintegrated the hotel floor became slippery and Bowron fell after playing pool.

What about pancake shoes?
Any lawsuits there?

ColdChef mentioned this story briefly here in a thread about news sources on the web. Close, but not quite a double post.
