porkchopshoesBack in 1997, Ross Lucock of Australia won a meat tray during a pub raffle. Informed that he needed to be wearing shoes while in the pub, he proceeded to strap the meat (pork chops) to his feet and parade around the pub, leading to the inevitable accident in which another pub patron slipped on the trail of pork slime and broke his arm. The guy with the broken arm then sued the pub, arguing that it had breached its duty of care by its “failure to remove [Mr. Lucock]… in the knowledge that he was inebriated and was clad with pork chops strapped to his feet.” He was awarded $750,000 in damages.
