Needless to say, we're suing.

This showed up in our in-box the other day:
It's a promotional photo from the NBC show "Grimm", currently seen on Tuesday nights at 10pm (9 Central). It's also a complete rip-off of our patented catch-phrase, "Hello, Ladies". Well, less of a patented catch-phrase than a standard greeting we say a lot, simply because we tend to frequently encounter ladies in groups and it would simply be rude to not say hello. Anyway, we say this all the time and everybody knows it. Normally, we're very tolerant of people "paying tribute" to us by copying us or repeating what we say. It's just one of those things that comes with being stylish trendsetters.

When this is what you slip on to run out and get the paper, what are you gonna do?
But this? This juxtaposition of three macho dudes staring intently into the camera behind the words "Hello, Ladies"? All in an effort to influence people to watch some television program (again, "Grimm", Tuesday nights, 10/9c on NBC). Well, that's crossing a line. Plus, the phallic imagery? Tacky! We prefer a much more subtle and stylish approach, thank you.

"Um, can I talk to you guys about these new uniforms?"
 So our executive assistant Eliza (seen above) will be firing off a cease-and-desist notice immediately to the powers that be at NBC (America's favorite network!). If that doesn't do the trick, we'll be taking further legal action.

Like I said, this isn't something we like to do, but it happens from time to time. I'll bet Jeff and Michael can remember other instances when we had to go litigious on somebody's ass.
