+ - Borat's Swimsuit Cited as Prior Art in Patent Rejection->

eldavojohn writes: Although Slashdot has been known to conjure up a lot of claims of prior art in software patents, Sacha Baron Cohen (or his alias "Borat") appears to be a pioneer in "scrotal support garments" featuring the latest technologies in his movies years before the patent applications flow. Another commentator points out that prior art can come from non-traditional sources but anyone familiar with old sci-fi knows that some of the worst fictional plots can be adorned with amazingly inventive tools and devices. Of course the applicant, Donald R. Quinn, has requested extra time before this rejection becomes final. Perhaps he will revise the design to additionally loop around the neck or simply sling around the ears instead of shoulders?
