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.
