A lawyer acting for Chubby Checker — the musical legend behind “The Twist”— has announced a lawsuit against tech-giant Hewlett-Packard for using the singer’s name for a penis-measuring app.

In a statement this week, attorney Willie Gary said the suit named HP and its subsidiary Palm, for marketing the software application without permission.

The suit filed a Florida federal court seeks $500 million in damages.

According to Gary, it alleges the app “adversely affects Chubby Checker’s brand and value… and will tarnish his image that he has worked to maintain over the last 50 years.”

“This lawsuit is about preserving the integrity and legacy of a man who has spent years working hard at his musical craft and has earned the position of one of the greatest musical entertainers of all time,” said Gary.

“We cannot sit idly and watch as technology giants or anyone else exploits the name or likeness of an innocent person with the goal of making millions of dollars,” he added.

“The defendants have marketed Chubby Checker’s name on their product to gain a profit and this just isn’t right.”

The “Chubby Checker” app, which appears on websites for Palm devices, claims to allow a person to determine a man’s penis size by using his shoe size.

Checker, 71, is best known for his 1960 hit “The Twist” which spawned a dance craze during the decade that followed.

Start talking, dufus. I do recall you being ignorant of the existence of geothermal cooling, and you seem to think thermodynamics works like Obamanomics - heat just magically goes into another dimension.
Changing your story again.

You claimed geothermal ground loops require a aquifer to work. As usual,you were wrong. That was really funny since you claim to be a geologist.

Man shot dead in confrontation over loud music
A pre-dawn confrontation over loud music playing from a car led to the fatal shooting of a man in an apartment complex parking lot Thursday.
Two off-duty security guards, one of whom lives at the Whispering Palms apartments at 4530 NW 36th St., confronted a man in his 20s about loud music coming from his car shortly before 3:15 a.m., the Broward Sheriff's Office said.
The men told investigators that the victim reached in the direction of one guard's gun and the second guard, fearing for their safety, shot him, according to Broward Sheriff's spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion.
A woman who said she was the victim's roommate said the shooting was not justified.
"Loud music doesn't give anyone a right to kill someone," said Taby Woodard, 20.

Tell that to Israel, where mandatory service has existed from the beginning.
A mercenary Army, which is what we have, is far more a danger to free society than a draft.
A draft is democracy in action, all share the pain, as we proved in WWII. DUH
Your anti-Americanism has reached new heights, worm!!

Yes, war bonds issued to pay for the wars and mandatory draft would curtail our war program. War is fine if they know someone elses son/daughter is going to catch the bullets. Make the rich white kids go, and you'll see and end to it forever.

FAUX fires Sarah Palin.

FAUX hires Herman Cain.

So how does firing a crazy white woman, and hiring a crazy black man, make any difference??

Is FAUX now pandering for the black vote and ignoring it's white Teabaggers??

Nitwits like this fool are deathly afraid of a Draft!!
It was the draft that turned America against the Vietnam War,which the rightwingers are still fighting.
You're right. Iraq could never have lasted more than a year or two if there had been a draft.
Most Americans have no skin in the game, they're kids are safe while the children of the poor and lower middle class become our military due to lack of other options.
In a democracy, a draft is essential to share the pain of war.
Just as the Rmoneys of the world insist the poor pay Federal Taxes, the rest of us would like to see Rmoney's kids drafted and sent to war, just like the kids of the less fortunate.
TSM is a Rmoney stooge. He's been crying since the election!!
Absolutely, if the rich white kids have to go to war; you'll see and end to it completely. Also, funding the wars should be done through war bonds, not hiding it off the books and borrowing to pay for it.
You want to go to war? Okay, send your son and show me the money.

That's exactly what Dweeb said. And repeated angrily to Old Raider.

And I will use it to point out his lies for a long time to come.

It will become the question he will see daily.

Let's see how well he handles it.

Black people are embarrassed by the likes of Herman Cain. Republicans are so out of touch with reality that it's almost pitiful. Sonic posted some good articles from American Conservative that polled young Republicans. But, I'm sure it will fall on deaf ears. Just look at the first declarations after President Obama was re elected:
Boehner: I want to abolish abortion forever in this country
Paul Ryan: reintroduces his personhood bill, giving rights to a fetus
New Mexico lawmaker: Wants to make it a felony for a women to have an abortion as a result of rape or incest; declaring it, tampering with evidence; as if a baby is needed to prove a rape
and on and on and on.
That's fine with me; they'll never get a candidate in the White House for a long time.

I didn't drag you into anything. It was your own stupidity I responded to. DUH

I answered Lily's post, where she pointed out your stupidity concerning the draft of women and Mr. Rangel.

Charlie Rangel is right. If women are allowed in combat, they will also be drafted when necessary.

You don't like it much when I point out your stupidity and hatred.

That alone makes it worthwile.

I like to see you whine like bytch you are!!

Agree that this kid was stupid; the likelyhood of getting shot if you're black is high. Why put yourself in that situation?

Example: there is a house in my neighborhood that is a frat house; they have huge parties, at times it could be 50-60 kids there, drinking, making noise, playing music. If the cops are called; no one ever gets arrested; they all drive off, drunk, no one pulls them over. If they were black, you can be sure, heads would roll.
It's just the way it is.

If you're a young black male, you have to watch yourself. Some people are just stupid.
