    A shocking oversight!

    "A 26-year-old Portland pimp has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike, claiming the shoe manufacturer is partially responsible for a brutal beating that helped net him a 100-year prison sentence.

    Sirgiorgiro Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon. He was wearing a pair when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy's prostitute in June 2012."

    Portlandia couldn't make up stuff as weird as what really happens around here.

    Well, it seems that Our Man has lost his case.

    In the absence of warning labels, we must all exercise great caution while wearing Nikes!

    Dang. And here I was salivating over the prospect of being able to file a claim against the settlement trust.
