There's no doubt that many lawyers have the gift of the gab, but one American lawyer is wishing he'd held his tongue.
The Daily Mail reports that Joe Amendola, the lawyer for Jerry Sandusky, an American football coach accused of sexually assaulting boys, made a rather unfortunate Freudian slip when trying to be witty at a press conference.
Amendola apparently spoke to journalists after a preliminary hearing of the high-profile matter, and decided to deal with the allegation that an assistant football coach had witnessed Sandusky raping a boy in a locker room.
"If you believe that," spouted Amendola, "I suggest you dial 1-800-REALITY."
Unfortunately for Amendola, some enquiring minds decided to see what would happen if you did indeed dial that number, and it was soon discovered that 1-800-REALITY will lead you straight to a gay-sex phone service.
If you call the number, you'll apparently be welcomed by a cheerful greeting saying, "The hottest place for triple-X action".
Now that is what Folklaw calls a major fail.
