Pokemon, Cihak says, is short for his multilingual catchphrase "Power of Bambino keep up the monde."

Which brings me to my next point: don't smoke crack.

The Dumbass tag would work equally well

Intellectual Property laws on single words are the some of the dumbest laws on the books.
If you don't agree, you can wipe my ass with a Kleenex...

Jesus Christ, I choose you to skull fark this guy.

2002-03-29 10:54:14 AM  
"POwer of Bambino KEep up the MONde"

Boy, that's catchy!!!
2002-03-29 10:54:32 AM  
Who gives a flying fark about Pokemon, anyway?!
2002-03-29 11:00:05 AM  
I'm not the most religious man, but this guy is definitely going to hell for pimping the baby Jesus and a stupid, nonsensical slogan to extort millions out of Nintendo.

2002-03-29 11:05:12 AM  
Keep up the Monde, yo. Werd.
2002-03-29 11:09:09 AM  
Somehow, it just doesn't seem like a good Friday without a really good "Jesus died for Pokemon naming rights" story.

Once again, to the rescue!

Happy Passover and Easter for those who give a shiat...

i'll re-do the math but i had 720,000,000.00 Kc coming out as 20,302,851.00 USD

Odd, my usual want for the little bussiness to win over the evil mega corporation is being beaten by my urge to smack this guy upside the head with a large fish.
2002-03-29 11:10:07 AM  
Screw the story, just click on the "Photo Essays" link. Eurotel Cheerleaders, yeow!

Pulsarcat: Norweigian Fish-Slapping Dance?

"Use your Holy Water Attack!", Ash encouraged. Jesus winked, and let flow a mighty stream of golden water. Unable to dodge, Jessie, James and Meowth cought the stream square in their faces. The sheer power of the holy water was enough to send them reeling into the air.

"Team Rocket is blasting off again!", they cried (rather wetly) as they disappeared into the stratosphere.

"It seems preposterous that Nintendo in Japan ... somehow traveled the earth to Prague to a small gallery and found the word and thought it was a brilliant idea."

Even odder, I find my self agreeing with an attorney.

sounds like the dude went to the jesse jackson seminars. you know, the wildly popular "No talent required" series.

Bass555: Sorta, but, less like a dance, and more like a brutal tuna beating.
2002-03-29 11:18:11 AM  
Never underestimate the Power of Bambino!
2002-03-29 11:19:23 AM  
Pokebos = "Power of Bambino Keep the BoSox out of the Series"
2002-03-29 11:21:51 AM  
Sometimes I make my buddy christ and pikachu figurines fight... I never thought it would come to this
2002-03-29 11:28:17 AM  
In other news, the Israelis have invaded Arafat's compound.
2002-03-29 11:44:17 AM

2002-03-29 12:00:42 PM

Looks like J-Lo ass to me
2002-03-29 12:06:00 PM  
Every time you play Pokemon, you make the baby Jesus cry.
2002-03-29 12:19:24 PM  
POwer of FARK keep dumbass lawsuits an american tradition and don't let it spread to the rest of the MONde...


You heard it here first.
2002-03-29 12:26:31 PM  
I think this guys arse needs to be kicked by Team Rocket

It combined English with the Italian word for baby -- bambino -- and the French word for world -- monde.
Ok how do you get Pokemon from this? There is no P or K in bambino or monde. WTF!
2002-03-29 12:41:20 PM  
Bambino Monde
Bambino Monde
Bamino Monde

looks right to me...
2002-03-29 12:46:14 PM  
Oh wait, I just remembered that I invented the word invention. Without me this pokemon lawsuit wouldn't even exist. I created it from the Italian "Invene" which means steal and the French "ention" which means someone's idea. Everyone surrenders.
2002-03-29 12:57:58 PM  
I thought Pokemon was really bad japanese/english for "pocket monster". or something. I don't have kids so I could be way off.
2002-03-29 01:04:09 PM  
Let me guess.. this guy's business selling little figurines isn't doing that great.

Can we introduce this idiot to N.K. Stouffer (the wingding who claims J.K. Rowling stole Harry Potter ideas from her) and send them off to an island somewhere?
2002-03-29 01:11:18 PM  
I've got to buy them
I've got to buy them
2002-03-29 01:53:52 PM  
I'm also certain that Pokemon means Pocket Monsters. In fact, I'm almost DEAD certain that some version of it (maybe the Japanese version) was actually CALLED Pocket Monsters. Bastard crackhead.
2002-03-29 02:45:55 PM  
Okay, okay, lets see here. One small Czech guy against a multi-billion dollar corporation. Who do you honestly think is going to win?
2002-03-29 02:59:31 PM  
Who do you think is going to pay for it?
2002-03-29 02:59:33 PM  
Pokémon is short for Poketto Monsutaa, which means Pocket Monsters in Japanese. I don't know where they got the little "é" from.
2002-03-29 05:23:34 PM  
Of course any PokeMaster knows you would need a JC level 25 to defeat a Charlizard.
2002-03-29 10:49:37 PM  
okay whether or not this dude stole the name pokemon and is one of those annoying "i sue for a living" ppl is irrelavent... who owns the rights to jesus christ? the church? some rich middle eastern dude? the rich texan from the simpsons? ...
