Whoville Publishing Threatened

The Whos, down in Whoville, have a time-honored publishing tradition: they publish a periodical book called "Who's Who", so that all the Whos can tell who's who from you. This cellulose-based communication media has been declining in popularity, due to Whos using Google, Facebook, and Myspace to tell who's who anew. This upsets the Whoville cellulose-based media barons, and while this innovation is beyond their control, they are still compelled to act. What's a Who to do?

Well, a non-Who, otherwise known as a nobody, was invited to join their ranks. The Whos use the most tantalizing visions of vanity to get nobodies to submit flattering biographies for listing in the Who's Who to-do. Oh, did I mention that the exchange involves money? For several billion Lira, you too can be a Who!

So, the nobody in question was not moved by the tantalizing promise of being a Who, and decided to blog about the Who's Who crew, from his nobody point of view. Cue the attorney Who, who may threaten to sue. "Cease and Desist" rings the Who cry and Who hew. What is a nobody to do? Blog about this too!

To the Whoville publishers; Don't stew. Time marches on, and you know this is true: Innovators make money, when they make something new. So get with the times, that is your clue, and you can have wealth that will quickly accrue.

Or not.

Let me use my favorite legal term of art:

"Go pound sand!"

I would purposely keep it up on my blog and DARE them to sue me - "See ya in court!"

Hmmm, that reminds me, I haven't done a "Tom Cruise and Scientology Are Whack" posting yet . . .

Well, you know, silliness deserves a like response. That, and with three young children, it's hard to NOT frame everything in terms of children's literature.

"Tom Cruise and Scientology are Whack" postings are always commendable but it'll be hard to equal what the South Park crew did to them a while back.
