Former American Idol contestant and popular country singer Bucky Covington sustained a broken wrist and several cuts and bruises in a Saturday morning kitchen mishap. The cause of the accident was said to be negligent directions on a carton of orange juice.
His agent, James Tenay, almost seeming to choke back a giggle despite the seriousness of the situation, said Bucky had just poured a bowl of Captain Crunch and was about to fix himself a glass of cold pulp-free when the tragedy occurred. “The carton’s directions instructed Mr. Covington to ‘Serve Cold,’ and he complied, but it also called for something far riskier” explained Mr. Tenay, his eyes looking a bit misty. When Covington read the next line – ‘Shake Well’ – he proceeded to do as it said, bouncing and convulsing wildly about the linoleum floor. This caused the carton to slip from his hand, spilling orange juice onto the floor and his bare feet. Covington slipped and broke his wrist while bracing himself against the impact.
“This is just unacceptable and we’ll be speaking with counsel about possibly bringing a lawsuit against Tropicana” Tenay said, stifling another inappropriate laugh. “How many more injuries or even deaths will it take to end this egregious misinformation?”
Covington strained his other arm in a similar accident last year when his shampoo label irresponsibly told him to “Rinse, Repeat.” Legal action against Head and Shoulders was called off early on.
