Fortnite lawsuit: Alfonso Ribeiro sues game creators for allegedly stealing ‘The Carlton Dance’

Fortnite lawsuit: Alfonso Ribeiro sues game creators for allegedly stealing ‘The Carlton Dance’

Alfonso's attorney, David Hecht of Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP, said, "It is widely recognized that Mr. Ribeiro’s likeness and intellectual property have been misappropriated by Epic Games in the most popular video game currently in the world, Fortnite."

On the game it's called the "Fresh emote". The creators weren't exactly trying to be sneaky about using it.

I read the article, he's currently in the process of copyrighting it, so this is a mandatory step to make set precedent with the stupid laws here in the US.

Surely the shows producers would be the ones who "own" it if anyone does

But he stole it from courtney cox

Chicago Blackhawks mascot, Tommy the Hawk, bodyslams fan during fight

Although generally kind to children and generous with free merchandise, mascots can lash out when provoked.

I mean, I think being punch and being put in a headlock would provoke me too.

“As Tommy is flightless he was unable to reach a perch, eyrie or tree branch for safety.”

This reporter is a cheeky bastard and I love it

Tommy was defending himself from someone that attacked him 1st, and security over there is just plain awful that didn't bother to save Tommy from attack nor back him up when he push guy out the door after the body slam.

“No animals, humans or anthropomorphic mascots were seriously injured during the fracas.”

The best quote from the article. Lol

We’ve all been there.

Doppelbangher?

Is this real?

Edit: so seeing as this is fake shouldn't this be removed? Pretty sure it violates rule 6

Is that a plot to a movie? If not it will be. Any good name suggestions?

Conservative Christian group launches campaign against “Buddhist meditation” in public schools: "the programs tell students to “’look inside yourself,’ ‘find the goodness within yourself’ — things that are clearly antithetical to the Christian religion.”

A blog post on the ACLJ website raises fears around the program, writing:

Imagine your elementary school child coming home one night and explaining the actions that their teacher asked them to do that day—to close their eyes and obey an audio recording that tells them to clear their minds, to watch their memories and emotions float away on clouds, and to feel the love and warmth from their connection to the universe.

How would you react if this same audio recording is telling your child to look inside themselves to reach inner-goodness and peace? Said one caller on Sekulow’s radio program, “This is toxic ideology. This goes beyond just bad education. This could be corrupting our children’s eternal souls. I have two small children, and I don’t want them sitting around just thinking about creation and goodness and peace. I mean, if my two angels, who are innocent, are gonna be learning about explorers, they should be learning about Jesus or Trump.”

Jesus and Trump have no place in public schools either. These people are full of the toxicity they claim to fight against. This kind of "christian" is nothing but a hypocrite.

That reads like satire, but it isn’t

Sometimes this subreddit just posts something and I have no fucking words

This will never work. Christians know that you must rely on priests to look inside children for goodness.

Louisville radio station to play “Baby, It's Cold Outside" on repeat, for multiple hours, in protest of attempted ban.

And then one "It's Not Unusual"

edit: fixed, had the wrong song, give /u/internetlad internet points

Who wants to listen to one station play the same song for hours? It would be more effective if they just mixed it in with some other Christmas songs.

Attempted ban, or some stations choose to play it on repeat and some choose not to play it at all. Cause it sounds like a choice, hardly a ban.

I get it. The music is good, most versions are sung well, plus lots of nostalgia. But come on. There's a lot of shit going on. Getting angry because someone, somewhere isn't playing a specific song this holiday season. .. eh. It'll probably be back in a year or two, anyways.

I’m okay with the song, but playing it even twice in a row would make me change the station so fast

Congress To Make Members Pay Out Of Pocket For Sexual Harassment Settlements

They weren't before!?!?!?!? craziness!

I wish we had a tally of all the money they spent, using our tax dollars, for their settlements.

Where I live a mayor of the town I live in was sued by multiple women for sexual misconduct and the women were awarded millions in damages. Now, we the tax payers, have to pay for that since it came out of the town's budget. It fucking sucks.

Maybe if you ask permission the number will let you.

Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants to be remembered as 'transparent and honest'

Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants to be remembered as 'transparent and honest'

Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be remembered for somehow making Sean Spicer look better.

To me the funny thing is that she expects to be remembered at all once she is out of the headlines. Ask a room full of people who Josh Earnest was (Obama's press secretary for 3 years).

She may well have done the best job she could, but that's more sad than anything else.

Full quote

“I hope that it will be that I showed up every day and I did the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message,” as well as “to do the best job that I could to answer questions,” Sanders said.

“To be transparent and honest throughout that process and do everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before,” she continued.

Irish woman who married ghost of 300-year-old pirate says they have split up

' The split is another blow for Jack, after he was purportedly executed for thieving on the high seas in the 1700s.'haahahahah

If she can't make it work with a 300-year-old ghost pirate, then what chance do the rest of us have?

She's a Jack Sparrow cosplayer by trade,spend a good bit of money to make her self look like Jack Sparrow,claims she's never seen her now former husbands physical form but say that she imagines he looks like -you guessed it- Jack Sparrow and they got married on a boat on the open ocean. She really likes Pirates of the Caribbean....

Well she's 46 and the pirate's ghost was over 300, so I think they were both just looking to settle. Never really works out.
