Chubby Checker Sues Over The Chubby Checker

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

Funny how he doesn't want his name to get sexual connotations or images when he behaves like a huge dick. Also, his lawyer is called 'Willie'.

Ok so Googling his name, 8/10 results on the first page are about this news story (would that I could even call it news), the other 2 being IMDB and Wikipedia; which has an entry on the case, so make that 9/10.

Meaning that everybody who hasn't heard of him (which is probably at least half of the internet) will now associate him with this story and not the one other thing he was famous for.

So let us all give a hearty slow clap for Dick Measure.

Perhaps ironically, this behaviour is now re-inforcing the idea that Chubby Checker is a means to measure dicks by using him as a standard.

Shame on Chubby for the frivolus lawsuit. But i could almost forgive him considering its brought this hilarious app to my attention, i cant look at that 'Check Da Chubby' pic without smirking.

The sad part is: if he doesn't sue, under US law he LOSES HIS TRADEMARK! This may be just a way for him to keep the trademark. And saying that the name sounds kinda like his trademarked name is just a touch off: they added the word "the" to the front of his trademark.

Would you be saying the same if apple sued someone for making something like this then calling it "the apple"

Its more the amount he is sueing them for that offends me...

It's either a sign that he is only doing it to keep the trademark or he is going senile.
