An Australian woman who was injured in 2007 while having sex during a business trip has been awarded worker’s compensation.

The woman, a human resources employee in a government agency, was having sex with a male friend in her motel room when a lighting fixture fell off the wall and and injured her nose and mouth

...

The woman sued for compensation, saying that since her employer reserved and paid for the room, the injury happened “during the course of her employment.”

In a statement, the male friend said that they were “going hard” and he did not know if they bumped the light or it just fell off.

“I think she was on her back when it happened but I was not paying attention because we [were] rolling around,” said the man,”

Gotta love those Aussies.

I can see some workmen’s comp if she was a prostitute and her company was her pimp, but this looks like a little work on the side, or, er, back.

Lucky guy. She could have been giving him a BJ when the fixture hit her in the mouth. Imagine filling a medical claim for that injury (I mean his injury, not her’s).

Ek! There’s a baldheaded mouse in the bed.

Reading a little more closely, I see it was a wall fixture, not ceiling. Not as impressive.

As they’re checking in—noticing their excitement the clerk asks him, “Would you like the bridal suite?”

He thinks about it for a few seconds then replies,
“Thank you, but no. If I have to, I’ll just hold her by her ears.”

You know how the tide goes way out before a tidal wave comes in? Sometimes I think that when a people reaches the point of inventing attorneys, that's the cultural equivalent of the tide going way out...

That right there explains it...

And what if one of Obama's Secret Service guys had contracted an STD from one of their prostitutes - would they get workers comp? Wouldn't surprise me.

“was having sex with a male friend in her motel room when a lighting fixture fell off the wall and and injured her nose and mouth “

Now what I wonder, were they having sex from the lighting fixtures? That is only reason I can think of that fixture would fall.

Wow. I want to see a card game in Australia as the judge likened this woman having sex to playing cards.

“Do you have any threes?”

“Go fish!”

pantpantmoanmoan lights fall off the walls.
