CRAPUMENTARY T-SHIRTS!

Crapumentary

That's right folks! I'm making my own Blogumentary parody shirt, before some punkass blogger does. The Crapumentary Ringer T is $14.99, and hello ladies - the shapely Crapumentary Womens Cap Sleeve T is $15.99. These are Hane's combed cotton, mmm so soft and so snarky.

While supplies last! (i.e. - forever.)

get rid of the shirt or get law sued!

As a regular reader of Blogumentary.typepad.com I find this t-shirt parody really insulting to me and my family and my neighbor Steve. My daughter likes to read your site and when you change out the word blog for crap, you're basically saying that my daughter likes to read crap, thinks about crap, and henceforth and whatnot your sayin she's crap. Now I don't know how things are in your boat, but round here thats messin with kin! Now I got to do what's best for me and mine, so be prepared to get law SUED you jerk and all those blog links on your site will get law sued too! I don't want to go talkin out of school about this, but some say you blog like a moon pie! Now hopefully that'll end your online blasphemy. Treat the blog with respect or get out and go back to your own country! You Acid Head Hippie!

Not sure I understand anything Ross is talking about. the shirts are cool
- I think he needs to breath deep in through the nose / out the mouth. zen.

That parody line is way too vague. But sometimes vague is good.
My favorite is the 2-live crew case, in which the Supreme Court accepted 2 Live Crew's song as a parody because the rap song mimicked the original to achieve its message and because it "reasonably could be perceived as commenting on the original [Oh, Pretty Woman] or criticizing it, to some degree."

So in your defense, the crapumentary t-shirt is an official parody if it helps assert your opinion of your Blog. On the trademark front, if Crapumentary.org came along as a blog about blogs with a similarly titled documentary I believe that would be trademark infringement warranting a C&D letter, but if the crapumentary.org was a site making fun of your site, than it would be parody and be okay. But at what point does parody go too far and become criminal?
I suppose if the victim of parody could report lost revenue or status...

the old "Sue yourself get rich quick trick"

are you going to bugger yourself, as well?

Posted by: Jonathan at Sep 14, 2005 9:41:40 PM

Yeah - I can take this crapumentary address, get free publicity through the shirts, sue you (Chuck), then demand all the money you made from the shirt sales. It's like the American dream, except without all the hard work.

carl, you can sue me anytime, if you buy a shirt.

jonathan, thanks for the question.
