It depends. If it's a chick with big boobs, I don't look at her face for a while.

Parody claim doesn't work so well when you are making a bunch of money off it, and you offer to stop for $1 million.
Also, focusing on the likelihood of confusion ignores the dilution, tarnishment, and unfair competition claims, not to mention the bad faith trademark registration attempt.

this case should be tried by the judge from The Wall

The consuming part helps you figure it out in a hurry.

If I had a face like that, I'd shave my butt and walk backwards!

yuk, yuk.

Sewing? Really?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh my god that is AWESOME. It looks like something that should be screaming "kiiiiilll meeeeee" like the Ripley-alien hybrids from Alien: Resurrection.

In fact, I'm going to put bold text underneath it saying just that.

We have a horrible problem in Greenville right now. ECU's campus has suffered from overpopulation of Northfacius Uggslutticus. The primitive creatures, with an orange tint to their skin can be seen running all over the place wearing North Face jackets and Ugg Boots. We're trying to cull the herd using eugenics, but sadly some clinics in the area are starting to offer treatments for the germ warfare introduced to thin their ranks.

Any girl wearing North Face + Ugg Boots is also wearing skin-tight pants that show off all her best assets. Why the hell are you complaining about that?

I highly doubt that, since they haven't figured out the ass vs hole in the ground conundrum yet.

You're actually in Greenville at this point? It'd be funny to me if we know each other in some context. And ECU would be a heck of a school if it weren't for all the darn students.

Odds that South Butt is owned by the same company as North Face? and the Lawsuit is just marketing?

Hope it doesn't turn out like this guys' company (they were forced to cease and decist):

But, in this case, they still resembled the UT logo somewhat

I must be old and out of the loop, fashion wise. I never heard of North Face until another thread about it a few months back, and now, every 20 something girl I see is wearing a North Face jacket. But the jackets ugly and generic and I just don't see why they like them so much - can anyone explain the appeal?

I live in Wilson, I just commute to grad school. You can usually catch us any Friday night in the back of Winslow's.

While most people only wear them for the status, The fleeces are incredibly warm and stay warm when wet. Great for skiing and hiking. They also can be zipped into ski jacket shells as the liner. The only problem is the ~$170 price tag.

When we're having a legal discussion, then saying "yeah, well, you sound like a lawyer" isn't insulting or disparaging of my arguments in the slightest, you realize.

You could drop the nuke directly on Christy's and it would still be there. The place is held together by cockroaches and dinge.
