Most Ridiculous Lawsuit Poll — The

1977 was the Summer of Sam, 2001 was dubbed the Summer of the Shark, 2008 was the Summer of   . . . the Sandal?

Sounds about right.

A West Virginia woman who broke her ankle while wearing a pair of flip-flops issuing the manufacturer, claiming the footwear was defective and the manufacturer did not properly warn her of the hazards of wearing the flip-flops.

So remember, if you’re one of the fortunate few 99.999999% of flip-flop wearers that weren’t injured by your footwear (despite the stunning lack of forewarning by the makers), count your lucky stars.  And watch out for sharks.

So is this the most ridiculous lawsuit of the month?  Or is one of these other lawsuits even more worthy?

– Inmate who killed and dismembered victim sues over pulled tooth, claiming “cruel and unusual punishment” 
– Child-molesting teacher countersues boy’s parents over negligent supervision 
– Kardashian sisters sued because their shows caused man “extreme emotional distress” 
– Male lawyer sues nail salon for $200,000 for charging men $2 more than women
