Woody Allen

I am told that Woody Allen sued American Apparel for $10 million dollars for putting up this billboard (looks like a satire/social statement to me . . .since American Apparel doesn't sell Hassidic garments) . . . Besides, as if Woody could be Der Heylikker Rebbe anyway - there's only one, and he's been dead a number of years. . . If it smells like a parody . . . must be a parody.

I am also told that American Apparel was forced by its insurers to settle this lawsuit for $5 million.

I keep "reading" all these stories about Woody not doing endorsements, but . . . I "saw" him in a commercial for NYC and i "saw" him in an ad in Japan in a kimono and an ad in Italy for telephones and I "read a book" that said he did ads in Europe . . . another Hollyweirdo who dismisses all of us here in the good ole USofA for the broader minds of Europe eh? *snicker*

Interesting no? I thought so. . . ahem. . .

I've seen the idiot in commercials as well. What a pansy.

Ah yes, the broader minds of Europe. He ran to the place where nobody cares that he boinked a teenager who depended on him for protection. Broad minds, indeed. You will pardon my plan to knock him down and pee on him if I ever cross his path.

Never liked him, never liked his movies, and law suits like that are driving me nuts. He get 5 mil. cripes. Having fun in the city?

Maybe his lawyers took one look at the lawyer(s) on the other side and got skeered?? *S*

I'm ready for some relaxation in the sun, how 'bout you?
