Dickson Dimwit Divot Drama
By Torleif Sorenson on 3/14/14
The facts as we have them now are that, on March 30, 2012, a Michigan biker bar waitress named Elizabeth Dickson was injured at Industry Hills Golf Club in City of Industry, California.
Miss Dickson, who (apparently) is also an aspiring model, was injured during the "Playboy Golf Finals" while she was helping Playboy Playmates "host the event." According to a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Miss Dickson agreed to have a photo taken of her lying on her stomach "with her buttocks partially exposed," so that Playboy Morning Show co-host Kevin Klein could then hit a golf ball from a tee inserted between her buttock cheeks.
Perhaps predictably, Klein missed both ball and tee and, according to the complaint, "struck plaintiff on the buttocks, causing her injuries and damages." In addition to the obvious physical pain, Dickson also suffered worrying and anxiety. TMZ reports that she is suing Playboy Enterprises and Mr. Klein for $500,000.
(Was Klein "distracted" by all the "nearby scenery"?)
In their report, CBS Los Angeles says that Dickson was the "Girl of Playboy Golf Winner" in 2011. They also passed along the helpful information that "Liz is from Traverse City, Michigan and when not modeling, works at Stingers in Wixom. When not spending time with her son, Liz likes to shop, see her friends, have fun and act silly. Liz enjoyed meeting the Playmates at the Playboy Golf Tournament and made several new friends."
SPECIAL NOTE: Please beware that several pages on the Stingers web site are flagged by this writer's anti-virus program as having malicious web site code. Visit the site at your own peril.
This hare-brained idea was probably doomed to disaster from the beginning, in no small part because it was a stunt by Playboy.
We assume that Miss Dickson has learned to not trust an imbecile like Klein to use her as a human teeing ground, given that Klein is supposedly not a professional golfer who actually knows what he is doing. We also hope that Dickson has recovered from her injuries; being struck by any object at over 90 m.p.h. cannot be fun.
And since plenty of guys in English-speaking countries are named "Kevin Klein," we extend our sympathy to Kevin Klein, the legitimate New York Rangers defenseman; some people may assume that the Kitchener, Ontario native might be the same person as the troglodyte from Playboy.
We hope that Miss Dickson is now a bit older, wiser, and less-trusting of people who never deserved any trust in the first place. We also hope that in the future, she will avoid situations like this that can come back to bite her in the butt.
oobers... keep your comments clean, please. :)

Not going there.
Poor thing needs Daddy to kis....nope, said I'm not going there.
(But I really want to!)
She got what she deserved. She should be ashamed of herself. Hopefully a judge throws this suit out the window.
Torleif Sorenson says:
Beef, you've raised a valid point: Do aspiring models have to sign contracts that include participating in idiotic stunts like this? Was the butt-tee stunt in her contract with Playboy?
The bar, "Stingers", is a regular exhibitor at the Michigan Golf Show. I never understood the connection between a skanky bar and golf but I do now. The barmaids both provide drinks and serve as human golf tees.
When is golf channel airing this?
joe jones says:
I can think of a lot better things to do with both the lady and the golf club. I would hope that they publish the name of the idiot that thought up this stunt. I din't know whay position he holds but he is under qualified.
Joe -I can think of a lot better things to do with both the lady and the golf club.-
What was Klein's score on that hole? :-/
Maybe he should have just used one of these instead:
Yeah, that wasn't a very good idea of her to agree to do that stunt. But if someone in playboy suggested to Miss Dickson to do this, then they should be fired from playboy ( you would think they would want to protect there girls). And as far as Mr. Klein goes. PAY UP dumb ass.
