Best Song and Dance: John Kiel Patterson

In a variation of the concept of singing for your supper, John Kiel Patterson of Louisiana is trying a “sue before you suffer” lawsuit against Apple Computer. Patterson’s song and dance is a claim that the iPod music player can cause hearing loss, although he admits he does not know if the iPod has damaged his hearing. Since Patterson files lawsuits over potentially dangerous products, anyone actually giving supper to Patterson would be well advised not to give him a sharp knife.
