Sex and the Shitty?



Yogi Berra is suing TBS because of a Sex and the City ad that he says tarnishes his reputation. In the spot, they try to define "Yogasm," and one of the definitions thrown out is "Sex with Yogi Berra." Funny ha-ha, free publicity for a man who now does Aflac commercials. (Not that there's anything wrong with Aflac commercials. Just ask Ellen Lloyd.) The trouble is, Yogi says he is troubled by the sexual nature of the spot since he is a religious man, yet he's suing for 10 MILLION DOLLARS! $5 million for commercial use of his name without permission and $5 million for unjust enrichment by use of his name without permission. Apparently, to air is human, to sue, divine. Click the title of the post for more.

p.s. - I am totally going home now!
