This guy nails it here:

"Have you all ever went into a after 8pm? It looks like an old pregnant woman strip club that sells hash browns! Dude, ya hire cooks without teeth! And then, like, me putting a little pot leaf beside their logo-that's the worst you've ever looked? If we piss-tested everybody who went to Waffle House on drugs and wouldn't let them inside, they'd be out of business!"

It's hilarious for Waffle House to be all high and mighty about their precious reputation being sullied.  I would set the probability that any given person at a Waffle House between 10 pm and 6 am is intoxicated on one substance or another at 90%.

And how exactly  does Waffle House staff?  Do they wait at the exit gate of prisons and stop people coming out asking "You need a job?"

lelio: I suppose "Jelly Roll" is a better rap name than "Lesbian turner-into"

Dyke Turner would be pretty good.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I got a big butt and I can not lie
You other brothers can't get by

My homeboys tried to warn me,
But that butt you got won't clear the door frame.

Lurk sober post drunk: I gotta say...I should really hate this guy, but his attitude really wins me over.

Yeah, I want to yell at the guy that he's a dipshiat for not spending $500 to run this by a lawyer before blowing 10k on the concept, but I get the feeling it would be like yelling at a sad St. Bernard.

Corporations have to take steps to protect their trademarks and brand names. People like Zipper have lost their trademark because they allowed it to become a generic name and now anyone can use the name zipper.

On the other hand they could have done it far better. An informal contact first and ask him to sign a document saying he acknowledged their IP and agreeing to pay a nominal $1 a year to licence it, and maybe not using it on his next batch.

IIRC there was a whiskey maker who took this approach with a musician who used their bottle on a record label. Anyone remember that?

Found it. Jack Daniels polite C+D letter.

Did the Bloodhound Gang ever face this kind of backlash?
