Boulder's Naked Pumpkin Run
Twelve participants in the Boulder, Colo., annual Naked Pumpkin Run may be forced to register as sex offenders. As 150 revelers ran naked through the streets of Boulder wearing pumpkins on their heads, police arrested 12 on charges of indecent exposure. If convicted, they could be classified as sex offenders. “I was thinking a minor fine or community service,” said Eric Rasmussen, 23, one of the so-called Pumpkin 12. “I was not thinking of sex offender.”
Class-action suit for Victoria’s Secret?
A Cleveland woman is suing Victoria’s Secret, charging that its bras gave her and hundreds of other women an itchy, blistering rash. Roberta Ritter, 37, says the Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me bras caused a rash that was “red-hot to the touch, burning and itching.” Her lawyer says 200 other women also got a rash, and has filed for class-action status. Victoria’s Secret conceded there had been “a small number” of complaints.
