Lindsay Lohan Suing E-Trade for Milkaholic "Parody" 
Lindsay Lohan is no milkaholic.

And that's likely why the 23-year-old star is suing financial company E-Trade for $100 million for using her name in its latest commercial about a boyfriend-stealing "milkaholic" baby.

In the ad, which debuted during this year's Super Bowl in February, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before.

"And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?" the baby girl asks before another baby girl pops into the screen saying, "Milk-a-whaaat?"

Lohan filed the lawsuit Monday, which claims the ad violated the star's rights under New York state civil-rights law.

"Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said in a statement to the New York Post. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."

The spokesperson for Grey Group, which produced the "milkaholic" commercial, said that they "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team."

In the lawsuit, Lohan is seeking an injunction to force the spot off the air.

I sw that commercial during the Superbowl and laughed out loud.  But I never once thought of Lindsey Lohan.  I mean, isn't she essentially saying to America that "when the phrase "alcoholic" comes up, think of me?"  Yeesh.

If the name "Mark" is used in a commercial, I'm so suing.

Right, like Paris Hilton suing Trey and Matt for calling her a "stupid, spoiled whore" on South Park. 

Oh, right, and Paris failed.
