When a children’s toy company takes a porn star to court, you know it’s going to be quite a story.

With the recall of it’s China made toys fresh in the mind, the world’s largest toy company Mattel, is on the front foot with another kind of China.

The company is suing adult entertainer China Barbie for using ‘a domain name containing the word “barbie” in a “bad faith attempt to profit from Mattel’s Barbie trademarks” and had damaged Mattel’s good name’, according to media reports.

As you probably know Barbie is the worlds best selling fashion doll, since 1959 with about US $1.6 billion in sales each year. A personal favourite of mine….

Apparently China Barbie is the porn alias of Terri Gibson, who owns and runs her own adult web site under the company name Global China Networks, where users can access exclusive content for US$19.95 (€14.77). Sounds like a good deal to me.

Before getting into porn Gibson supposedly worked at some of the world’s leading investment banking firms and advertising agencies in New York, but the lucrative world of porn was just too seductive for 29 year old Terri.

Along with appearing in her own web site, Terri who’s father is Jamaican and mother Chinese, has also appeared in a number of hardcore adult films since 2001, according to IMDB.com, including Asian Divas 3, Me Luv U Long Time and Oral Sensations 7.

Mattel is angry at their good name being spoilt, demanding it get it’s hands on the Chinabarbie.com domain name, damages of $100,000 (€74,030) and to order that any profits Global China Networks achieved be given to Mattel.

Our friends at Mattel are no stranger to court action. Cases include:

Memorably in 1997 against the Danish pop group Aqua for their song parody, Barbie Girl, it lost that case.

Mattel successfully sued an artist from Utah in 1999 for profiting from artistic photographs called Food Chain Barbie involving Barbie dolls in a blender. (Click to see the pictures)

An injunction against a British woman who produced a Barbie doll dressed in bondage clothing, that one was dismissed by the Judge, “to the court’s knowledge, there is no Mattel line of S&M Barbie.”

Hideous.

The only question now remains, who does mattel have their sights on now?

Boss kills employees because they ‘asked for a pay rise.’

Smirk of a killer- Lithuanian native Rolandas Milinavicius dosn’t seem to like pesky employees much at all.

 Asking your boss for a pay rise can be a daunting task at best, and it seems especially so for those working in the car dealership industry.

So if you thought your boss was a bit of a psycho, spare a thought for Inga Contreras and Martynas Simokaitis.

Police in Georgia, USA, have charged Rolandas Milinavicius with the murder of his two employees after they questioned him over not being happy about the pay.

He has confessed to shooting the pair.

Local media reports:

Milinavicius, who was having financial problems, told police he shot the two Thursday after they kept asking for more pay.

“As I understand, the employees were not really happy about the pay, and they had questioned him about it over the course of time,” a police spokesman said. “That morning he said he just snapped.”

Contreras and Simokaitis were cremated and an informal memorial service was held at Simokaitis’ cousin’s apartment over the weekend. The remains were to be flown to Lithuania on Tuesday.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” the cousin, Jaunius Simokaitis, of Fayetteville, said Monday. “If he was having money problems, these two would have been the ones to help him get out of debt. They would have helped him make that money.”

He was denied bail by a judge.

Video story from local Atlanta News..

Let this be a lesson to us all….

Never work in a car dealership.

Better yet, join a union before you ask for a pay rise.

Even better yet, don’t ask for a payrise at all.

Who needs money right?

Better yet, take some good advice on how to handle workplace politics from our friends at CNN Living: Four co-workers you should befriend.

Drink driving is fun!

Looks like America’s number 2 most famous for being famous/movie starlet/singer etc has not been listening to her good pal Paris Hilton’s warning”to be responsible and have a designated driver!”

21-year-old  Hollywood wild child Lindsay Lohan was arrested just hours ago by Los Angles police on suspicion of drunken driving and cocaine possession, days after she completed a 45-day rehabilitation program.

Media report:

Police said they had received a report of a car chase and that Lohan and two companions were in the pursuing vehicle.

She was taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test. A subsequent search yielded some cocaine in her pocket, police said.

Lohan was booked on suspicion of drunken driving, cocaine possession and driving on a suspended license. She was held in the Santa Monica jail.

Lohan was released on $25,000 bail. According to police, she will be arraigned on Aug. 23.

The actress recently spent more than a month at Promises rehabilitation facility in Malibu and she’s already facing a drunken driving charge in Beverly Hills.

Lohan agreed to wear an alcohol-detecting anklet upon her release from the Promises treatment center in Malibu, but it was unclear if that played a role in the traffic stop.

The latest news is sure to do wonders for her world-wide celebrity profile. Just look how much attention Paris got! 

You go sister!

Ouch: The Tasmanian pool cue prank, don’t try this at home.

In 2007, amazing story, australia, court, Crazy news, law and order, Life, News, Odd News, Pool, Tasmania, World News on July 23, 2007 at 7:19 pm

 

Oh yes, the joys of alcohol consumption.

On the Australian mainland, jokes about our Tasmanian cousins are regularly the ‘butt’ of many jokes, but this story is just plain ridiculous.

A man from Tasmania, Australia has been given a 6 month jail sentence after he rammed a pool cue up his freinds rectum with such force it snapped off, leaving 31 centemters stuck inside his bowel.

A local court was told that 21 year old  Matthew Triffett had drunk alcohol at various locations around the Tasmanian capital Hobart, to celebrate the birthday of one of two friends with him at the time.

The Judge in the case said the trio ended up at the Village Green Tavern, east of Hobart, where the complainant crashed to the floor with his buttocks exposed while his friend ran around the pub in the nude.

He said Triffett had used considerable force to thrust the cue into the man’s anus, including lateral force, because it snapped in two.

“What he (Triffett) did excites disgust and horror,” Justice Crawford said.

He said Triffett thought it was a big joke until the full extent of what he had done was revealed.

In crippling pain, the complainant went home and removed the cue from his rectum.

Unable to tolerate the agony any longer, he went to Royal Hobart Hospital three days later and underwent immediate surgery for a perforated colon.

His body waste had been emptying into his body cavity, which could have killed him, Justice Crawford said.

The injured man was discharged from hospital three weeks later but he had to return later for further surgery to have a colostomy bag removed.

The pain!
