Well, At Least She's Not Also Suing Rose Royce or Christina Aguilera & Missy Elliott

Via Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me, we learn of the frankly horrifying story of the dental patient injured when the dentist's drill goes a bit off course.  The alleged reason?

A dentist at Syracuse Community Health Center, dancing to the song “Car Wash” while he was extracting a patient’s tooth, lost the inch-long drill bit, which punctured her sinus cavity and came to rest by her eye socket, according to her lawsuit.

The NYT blog The Lede has more discussion, including an observation that the dentist's name is, amusingly, Dr. George Trusty.

I've got a dentist appointment on Friday.  Perhaps I'll ask that they turn down the volume on the radio...
