Rock ‘n’ roller Chubby Checker is in a twist about a penis size app that shares his name. The 71-year-old musician is suing Hewlett-Packard to the tune of half a million dollars for “irreparable damage and harm” caused by the “Chubby Checker” app for HP’s Palm OS. The app has since been removed from the HP catalogue, but the previous description read: “Any of you ladies out there just start seeing someone new and wondering what the size of their member is? … All you need to do is find out the man’s shoe size and plug it in and … there is no need for disappointment or surprise.” Keep reading »

Man Sues His Wife For Giving Birth To Ugly Baby, Wins $120,000

Pregnant baby?!
This doll is not anatomically correct. Read More »

Once upon a time, a man in northern China named Jian Feng married the girl of his dreams, and soon his beautiful wife gave birth to a baby girl. And that’s where this fairytale ends, because Feng took one look at his newborn daughter and declared that she was extraordinarily ugly. Since Feng believed that his ridiculously good-looking DNA could never have contributed to a less-than-lovely child, he accused his wife of cheating on him. Now here’s where the story goes from depressing to crazy: Feng’s wife hadn’t cheated on him, but she had concealed another soap opera-worthy secret. Apparently before she met her would-be husband, she had undergone $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to alter her appearance. Feng was so enraged with this turn of events that he filed for divorce and sued her for the equivalent of $120,000 for convincing him to marry her under false pretenses. And here’s where the story goes from crazy back to depressing: Feng won the case.

Court Ruling Protects Louboutin’s Fancy Red Soles

Fake Louboutins
Black pumps plus red paint = DIY knockoffs. Read More »

Thanks to Christian Louboutin’s lawsuit, today we all have the chance to read a very serious court ruling in which a judge makes reference to that ubiquitous and kind of terrible fashion term, “pop of color.” It all started last year when Louboutin claimed that a pair of red-soled heels by Yves Saint Laurent infringed on their trademark design. A lower court judge acknowledged the popularity of the Louboutin red sole and its visibility as a status symbol, but ruled that a single color could not be trademarked. Yesterday in a court of appeals, Judge José A. Cabranes handed down a verdict in favor of Louboutin, arguing that it is “the contrast between the sole and the upper that causes the sole to ‘pop’ and to distinguish its creator.” Not sure how this might affect all those DIYers who have been faking their own Loubs with a coat of red paint, but you might want to choose a different color to “pop,” just in case… [NYT] [Photo via Net-A-Porter]

Woman Wins $900K From Guy Who Gave Her Herpes

Reason to wear a condom No. 437: Giving someone an STD can be really expensive. A 49-year-old Oregon woman won a lawsuit last week against the 69-year-old man she says gave her genital herpes on their fourth date, the Oregonian reports. The jury awarded her $900,000, almost the entire amount she’d been asking for, declaring that the incident had been 75% the man’s fault. “We all felt he should have told her—he had a responsibility to tell her,” one juror said. The plaintiff claimed the man had agreed to use a condom, but changed his mind at the last second, and only mentioned the disease afterward. Read more …
