HEROES on trial!

Folks, I can't make this stuff up! NBC is being sued by a garbage disposal company because of a scene where the regenerative cheerleader intentionally mangles her hand in a--you guessed it--garbage disposal:
So I can see why Emerson would be mad at NBC. The network is merely perpetuating this myth that garbage disposals are a menace to society! Garbage disposals don't chop off people's fingers. People chop off people's fingers.

Still, I'm not sure why Emerson has to be worried about its product being cast in an "unsavory light." Anyone who willingly shoves their hand in a garbage disposal because they saw someone do it on TV is a moron. That's not Emerson's problem.

Personally, I think Emerson has it all wrong. With Heroes becoming NBC's breakout hit, they should be sending the Peacock Network a thank-you note for the prominent product placement.
