I wonder if this guy has ever had sex before. I would assume he hasn't, because the human body is just so utterly disgusting. Unless he is just attracted to other men.
Will this story ever disappear?
2004-03-18 03:28:56 PM  
No. It won't ever done. 10 years from now it will still be rearing its ugly breast.

For filing this frivolous lawsuit this man should be
sentenced to watch another Justin Timerlake performance.
2004-03-18 03:52:06 PM  
Holy God! Not every sentence, needs a farking comma! Learn to write, you farking morons!

Jesus, H, Christ on a, popsicle stick!
2004-03-18 04:00:01 PM  
I have to say, that spookcomix is, right about the article's, blatant misuse, and overuse, of the commas.
2004-03-18 04:23:58 PM  
I'm not exactly, a grammar nazi, but it was, just unbearable, to read.

(It reads as though they wrote it to sound like how the reporter talked on the report, or whatever. I don't know. Still, don't dis the language!)

Viacom advertised the show for general audiences, but instead it contained inappropriate, lewd, offensive, violent, and degrading adult content.

Let's see. He knew he was watching football, and he knew MTV was doing the halftime show, but he watched anyway. Sounds to me like he was looking forward the the lewdness & violence.
2004-03-18 06:53:06 PM  
that is one strange speach impediment that journalists got going on.

This article also, reads like it was put together, by the Department of Redundancy Department, is how this article reads.
2004-03-18 06:56:35 PM  
The article sucked, on so many levels, it is hard to know, where to start.

MTV sucks

Superbowl halftime shows suck harder

skanky Janet boobie sucked

media backlash sucked

FCC mongering sucked

Janet and MTV sucked for lying about it all

and now we have an opportunistic attorney trying to profit of it with frivolous litigation.

there is nothing, about any of this, that I can stand, anymore.
2004-03-18 06:57:28 PM  
Hmm.. Does this qualify as an MTV trifecta?

2 MTV articles and a story originating from a superbowl show by MTV.
2004-03-18 06:57:29 PM  
I've seen, your girlfriends boobs, retro, and I would sue, too!,
2004-03-18 06:57:38 PM  
Did anyone see the new episode of South Park last night with Cartman creeping across the stage naked, thinking he was invisible? Then the town got really angry at him. Man, South Park rules. And this guy is an asshat.
2004-03-18 06:57:39 PM  
This is an example of a comma splice, I hope you like it.
/worst, writer, evar,,,
2004-03-18 06:57:56 PM  
Youtah, go figure.

2004-03-18 06:58:38 PM  
You know, Viacom knew or should have known these advertisements were untruthful.
2004-03-18 06:58:39 PM  
dead horse...check progress

can't, Janet, just, die, already
2004-03-18 06:58:44 PM  
do you figure he's a Mormon ?
2004-03-18 06:58:47 PM  

I did see that, and I thought it was really, really, really great. The show is always good, but they do something great occasionally.
2004-03-18 06:59:11 PM  
I've never seen such cruel abuse of the comma. I guess punctuation isn't taught in journalism school.
2004-03-18 06:59:34 PM  
I wasn't gonna read the article, but the whole comma thing, well, it sounded really exciting.

Sam, Penrod, sucks.
2004-03-18 06:59:38 PM  
I don't, understand, what y'all's, problem, is.
2004-03-18 06:59:44 PM  
What a dumbass.
2004-03-18 07:00:16 PM  
This is the kind of guy I'd like to track down, stalk, corner in an alley, and show my penis, just to see the look on his face.

Er, not that I've ever done that.
2004-03-18 07:00:40 PM  
I'm going to sue, for $5000, for the emotional distress, parsing all of these commas has given, me.
2004-03-18 07:00:58 PM  
The television was invented right there in Utah by Philo T. Farnsworth. He should name the Farnsworth estate as a co-defendant.

dbaggins -

"do you figure he's a Mormon ?"

Naw, he's a moron. There's a difference.

One is capitalized and has the letter "m" in the middle.

/just funnin'

Let's fighting love!
2004-03-18 07:03:21 PM  
I, figured it, out.

He, is being paid, by, the comma, I think.
2004-03-18 07:04:48 PM  
dbaggins- Isn't everybody?

All I hear are crickets chirping... Maybe they're Mormon crickets?
2004-03-18 07:05:54 PM  
Hey... It's one way to advertise.

From what I can tell, the guy just got admitted to the Bar in October 2003.

U.S. law boggles the mind.

Takes a lawyer to make a mountain out of an anthill...farking prude. I hope he spends way more in court costs...
2004-03-18 07:09:22 PM  
Blame Bush for the grammar.

2004-03-18 07:10:14 PM  
thats just, incredibly, amazing.
if I could write, with such a skill as the author, I would be published by now!

this thread, not the article, cracks me up.

2004-03-18 07:15:49 PM  
article mentioned something about $145 in court costs. $145? is that all it costs to sue somebody? I get the feeling he's in this WAY over his head. If not...where's that bandwagon?

/fat, cholesterol-filled, pissed off smoker who wants some farkin' money.
2004-03-18 07:17:32 PM  
Piglet's right. The guy only got licensed in October of 2003.

He's not in or in the Utah yellow pages.

What an asshat. I hope Viacom slaps him hard.
2004-03-18 07:18:08 PM  
I wish this came before me as the judge. I would award costs/fees to Viacom. What an ass.
2004-03-18 07:18:30 PM  
Earlier that day one of his kids got a chinese star in the eye. His kids saw all the violence glorified in the Superbowl and wanted to play at being ninjas and one thing led to another and one of them got a star in the eye.

But who cares about that? America saw a breast and WE ARE OUTRAGED. Think of the CHILDREN and the MESSAGE is sends them.

In small claims, yep. Also, $5k was the most he could ask without spending a lot more money.
2004-03-18 07:19:35 PM  
Perhaps he was eating at a really expensive restaurant en the sight of MS. Jackson's boobie made him lose his lunch.
2004-03-18 07:19:39 PM

First thing we do is kill all the lawyers.
