aggrieved idiots

How about a good example of the gene pool needing some chlorine?

Nine women from across the country have decided to put themselves out there to give us one. These women have filed a Federal Trade Commission complaint against RCA and Sony/BMG because they feel betrayed--betrayed!--their precious Clay Aiken might be--gasp!--gay. They also state that by “selling” Clay without disclosing his alleged sexuality, it was like selling them a defective product. No, seriously:

The nine-strong group, listing themselves as “aggrieved consumers” SUSAN J, PATRICIA A, JACQUELYN C, KAREN G, PHYLLIS S, CAROL M, KAREN G, KIM M and LINDA F, hail from all over America.

They allege that employees of RCA, Sony/BMG, and Aiken himself “engaged in collusion to prevent public disclosures they believed might be harmful to their product”.

The angry ladies go on to state, “This is tantamount to a manufacturer concealing information about a defective product. Therefore these actions were both unfair and deceptive to consumers.”

Just what do these women expect the FTC to do about it? Why:

[I]nvestigate the practices of the record companies, to invoke civil penalties where appropriate, and to enjoin the companies from violating the Federal Trade Commission Act.

All because the dream that Clay was really singing to her at the concert was dashed.

(so amusing, I just had to cross-post)
