When in doubt…sue!

I know that by now you are all familiar with the national sport of the U.S., suing the crap out of everyone. Lindsey Lohan tried it recently, and since this is something of a “fake” lawsuit (OK, it is a real lawsuit, but no one other than Lindsey is taking it seriously). Want to know how I know this? I just read the following on Legal Blog Watch.com.

Welcome back to Judge Carton Rules, where a fake judge issues rulings to spare the parties to cases in which the outcome is obvious the time and expense of further litigation. Here is today’s docket:

Case 1: In the awesome commercial below, the toddler girlfriend of the E-Trade baby demands to know if “that milk-o-holic Lindsay was over” at her boyfriend’s house. Lindsay “You’re So Vain, You Probably Think This Commercial Is About You” Lohan says that she “has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna,” and as such, the ad has misappropriated her “name and characterization.” She’s asking for $100 million.

Judge Carton’s ruling: Bwaaaah haaahaaaaahaaaaaa hahhaaaaa!! Wow. Good to laugh like that once in a while. Now get out of my fake courtroom, “Lindsay,” and do not return. E-Trade’s future Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED.

It’s all about Lindsay

Have you heard this silliness?

Actress and sometimes singer Lindsay Lohan filed a lawsuit against financial-services company E-Trade on March 8, 2010, saying one of its television ads “used her name and characterization” without her permission. What characterization was she referring to? A baby named Lindsay that is referred to as a “milkaholic.” Apparently, Lohan takes offense to other people — fictional babies included — being referred to as any type of -holic. Lohan’s lawyer went on to claim that the company was clearly referencing the socialite because she has the same one-name recognition as people like Oprah or Madonna and that E-Trade was “using [Lindsay’s] name as a parody of her life.” Lohan is seeking $100 million in damages.

Talk about an inflated ego!

I know that after seeing that, my first thought was about Lindsay (not)

So seriously is Lohan admitting that she is some sort of lactate-swilling slut?
