A Delaware man’s lawsuit alleges he awoke from anesthesia after a colonoscopy procedure to find he had been dressed in a pair of pink panties.
The New Castle County Superior Court lawsuit, filed by attorney Gary Nitsche on behalf of Andrew Walls, 32, said Walls was employed by the Delaware Surgery Center in Dover when he underwent a colonoscopy procedure at the facility in 2012.
Nitsche said his client was put under anesthesia during the procedure and he awoke after surgery to find someone had dressed him in pink women’s underwear.
“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,” the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit, which also names the Eden Hill Surgical Group of Dover, alleges Walls suffered “severe emotional stress,” and Nitsche wrote his client is seeking compensation for mental anguish, blah, blah, etc., blah, blah.
Except for the boilerplate lawyerese at the end it’s a reasonably droll tale.
During WW2, one of my uncles pulled a comparable stunt on a PITA officer who was recovering from minor surgery. He had him lie on his stomach so he could check his temperature with a rectal thermometer. Then, disappeared. The officer finally became curious as to why folks were chuckling when they walked past his bed.
Which is when he discovered there was a long-stemmed daisy up his butt instead of a thermometer.
