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.
