An Invasive Procedure

Pink power! (Cafepress)

When 32-year-old Andrew Walls went to the Delaware Surgery Center for a colonoscopy, he was prepared for surgeons to “stick it to him” in a most uncomfortable, yet predictable way.

When he awoke from surgery, though, he realized something even more disturbing than a sore butthole: his normal underwear had been replaced with a pair of fashionable pink panties!

Apparently, Walls worked at the center and fell victim to an “outrageous” prank by his colleagues. And trust me… he was not happy.

Shortly after the prank, Walls lost his job due to “severe emotional stress.” And now he’s suing for damages. Here’s a brief excerpt from his lawsuit:

“When the plaintiff initially presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women’s underwear and at no time did the plaintiff voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women’s underwear upon himself.”

And this, to me, is the real problem: if Walls had been wearing ladies’ underwear to begin with, then none of this would have happened!

  1. Emotional distress? I probably wouldn’t have liked it either if I was a guy, but I think I could’ve laughed it off. But honestly, I would’ve never gone to the place where I worked for any sort of medical procedure. No matter how professional they may be, it would’ve been way too awkward.

    There was another case like this where a woman underwent surgery at a hospital where she worked and woke up with stickers on her face. The nurses and doctor took pictures and shared them with others. She later sued, claiming it violated her dignity and endangered her health. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/woman-sues-hospital-sticker-prank-surgery/story?id=20204405
