The SFPD has been a little slow in getting around to detaining or questioning the woman responsible for last month’s brutal stiletto attack outside the Balboa Café in the Marina — Grub Street has been told that a detective is still on the case, but he was distracted by a few a more urgent matters and there have been no updates as of last week. 30 Rock was a little quicker, however, in getting a possible reference to the crime on air. The most recent episode, as SFist notes, included a scene in which Jenna attacks an off-brand Sesame Street character with her off-brand stiletto heel, tricking the media in the process into thinking it was a real Christian Louboutin shoe.
While it’s possible that Tina Fey and her writers wrote this in before the attack that made headlines the world over, we’re pretty sure they were inspired by our own Louboutin Lucy, who remains nameless until further notice.
Update: We have received confirmation from Tina Fey’s people that this was, in fact, just a coincidence. But nevertheless a funny one.
