    2advanced to sue everybody

    Yes it's true: acording to FlashMagazine.com, 2advanced.com have issued a writ against "every Flash designer in the enitre world", for stealing their design aesthetic unrepentantly over the last three years.

    Confronted about his company's unprecedented legal blitzkrieg, 2advanced CEO Warwick Hunt unrepentantly commented:
    "Just look at the featured sites section at Flashkit.com - don't these people realise we own the patent on neat little boxes on a dark background which flash white before the content appears. And small text?"

    The woman in the shades leaning against the wall staring at the logo in the Profile section was unavailable.

    Yes, it's true! They also are suing the Energizer Bunny, and charging him with battery!

    It was only a matter of time.

    apparently The financial times has received a summons too.

    Apprarently on page 18 of the stocks and shares section on April 1st 1989, they used small text which is actually a patent of 2advanced studios.

    To avoid this lawsuit, I have quit my job and am now working in newcastle as a rear gunner on a milk float.

    Ladies and gentlemen of the supposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider: (pulling down a diagram of Chewie) this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk, but Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now, think about that. That does not make sense!

    Why would a Wookiee -- an eight foot tall Wookiee -- want to steal from 2Advanced or live in Endor with a bunch of two foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense!

    But more importantly, you have to ask yourself: what does that have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense!

    Look at me, I'm a lawyer defending a minor design company, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca. Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense. None of this makes sense.

    And so you have to remember, when you're in that jury room deliberating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation... does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense.

    If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.

    Sorry I didn't post sooner but I've now lost my job on the milk float. I'm now a ringer outer for a one handed window cleaner in Burnley.

    michaelessy, please ignore phantomflanflinger, he likes to cause trouble.

    phantomflanflinger, play nice now!

    I've got what I deserve anyway, I've just sacked myself and I'm now on my way to Sodding Chipbury via 2nd class post to work for Virgin as a Mates tester. See alt.binaries.multimedia.post-yourself-south for details.
