It’s been one of those, where I am trying to type a blog, review some legal documents and also make some phone calls. That’s a recipe for sheer blogging laziness. When that happens, I usually turn to some pending lawsuit stories. They are fascinating to me, and I can summarize without any real creativity. So, here goes some typing laziness.
Our first story comes from the confused taste buds aisle. Lean Cuisine has announced a recall of the Dinner Selects Chicken Fettuccine. Instead of chicken, they shipped Lemon Garlic Shrimp. Bad for the taste buds and worse for someone who is allergic to shrimp. Also bad for the husband who is afraid to say, “Honey, this doesn’t taste right.”
The next story is quite a relief to us all because we now know who owns the word “tweet”. News from the unknown. Apparently, Twitter and Twittad were in a legal fight over who owned the trademark for “Twitter”. I had to look up Twittad to learn that it involves a company that helps advertising on Twitter. After much legal wrangling, they’ve resolved their differences and Twitter is the owner. Next thing you know, someone will be stealing the word Twinkies. Someone needs to step up and stop that word stealing.
Finally, this last one caught me by surprise. Harrisburg, the capitol of Pennsylvania, has filed a rare chapter 9 bankruptcy. They are listing liabilities of 500 million and assets of 100 million. They say that they are having financial difficulties like many other businesses. Now, I’m not sure where this is headed but I don’t think the goodwill of being the capitol is for sale. If it is, wouldn’t it be kinda fun to attempt to bid on it and then assign that to Short Pump, Virgina. Make Short Pump, the capitol of Pa. Seems more exciting than bidding on the metal chairs.
Now, Pic O’ Day. Maybe Harrisburg can use Chapter 9 to change their name to Fantasy Island.
