Hey I have some pictures from around my house  with my daughters Taurus in them - including a satellite pic from Google Earth, do you thing Ford will be after me now?

The bad news is that Ford probably would have no chance to win this case if it went to court, but a not-for-profit club wouldn't want to spend even a cent to defend themselves. 

The good news is that the bad press Ford gets from these heavy-handed tactics hurts the brand more than the "misappropriation" of their trademark in a fan calendar would. 

If I were on the board of Ford, someone in the legal department would lose their job over this mistake.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
