Chubby Checker sues penis app. makers for $500m
CHUBBY Checker wants a billion dollars for the “irreparable damage and harm” caused by the penis-measuring Chubby Checker app, available on Hewlett-Packard’s Palm OS platform.
Says lawyer Willie Gary:
“This lawsuit is about preserving the integrity and legacy of a man who has spent years working hard at his musical craft and has earned the position of one of the greatest musical entertainers of all time.”
The app. was aimed at women:
“Any of you ladies out there just start seeing someone new and wondering what the size of there [sic] member is? … All you need to do is find out the man’s shoe size and plug it in and … there is no need for disappointment or surprise.”
The lawyers say that “purchasers of ‘the Chubby Checker’ app and non-purchasing browsers of the associated web page are being misled into believing that plaintiffs have endorsed defendant’s app”.
Sorry, ladies. Chubby Checker did NOT endorse this app. As such, the device has not been calibrated to Mr Checker’s shoe size.
Note: Check out his trousers.
