Tara Reid’s, um, slip …

I came across this mini-story yesterday when I ran a search for Tara Reid on Google.  I was a bit bored and was after some pictures of this gorgeous actress to ogle at until my interest in my work returned.  What I found was way more than I bargained on finding.  I expected to find…
