Here's a real winner of a lawsuit threat somebody filed against us with the Attorney General of New York. Yes, somebody actually spent their free time filling out paperwork, calling phone numbers, and mailing letters to shut us down. Why? Because of this Photoshop Phriday image. Mr. Felix Yukilevich, obviously, is not Asian, but that didn't stop him from standing up and protecting the millions - possibly billions - of Asians who are undoubtedly offended by Photoshopped images on humor websites. God bless you Felix, for standing up and fighting against Something Awful's shackles of oppression!

Oh, and you may notice the date on the letter is from July 26, 2004. Oops. I kinda forgot about this lawsuit threat until I went through my tax folders here and found this folded up in the back of it. Oh well, it's NEW TO YOU! For bonus humor, check out the emails he labels as "HATE MAIL" and his battle to contact the FTC, BBB, and the California State Attorney General... ABOUT AN IMAGE ON A HUMOR WEBSITE. My reply to the Attorney General of New York can be seen on the last page; click any image for a larger, easier-to-read version.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
