Another day, another bestiality lawsuit involving Jay Leno.

The Tonight Show host is currently being sued by former flight attendant Louann Giambattista who claims her reputation was damaged after Leno implied during an on-air segment that she had sex with her pet rat. No need to explain any more than that! We've all been there, sister!


But just in case we haven't, here's the full story:

In the complaint, filed in New York Supreme Court, former American Airlines flight attendant Louann Giambattista claims that a July 2013 episode of "The Tonight Show" picked up a story about her supposedly smuggling her pet rat onto work flights in her underwear and/or pantyhose. (Giambattista says that the story was the result of an alleged "relentless campaign of discrimination" by American Airlines.)

According to the suit, "Leno and his guests falsely accused Ms. Giambattista of engaging in sexual relations with a rat," primarily via the comments made by the panelists on the "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda" segment.

Leno's bestiality joke? "[If] I were one of those rats, I would've been very upset. I prefer not to sit in cooch."

Ugh, Giambattista should sue him for his assault on humor instead.

I am so tempted to write "I smell a rat," butinstead I'll just say, Jeebus Christ, this woman is SO full of shit. Leno's cheesy joke (1) didn't imply anything about bestiality, and (2) is almost certainly not the cause of the problems in her social and romantic life. I suspect those are the result of her being A COMPLETE WACK.

I find it really annoying when people think the legal system is the lottery.
