:-) Thanks.

Not so much the jolly green giant one. Those commercials might be too old for many to remember.

Honestly, I'm surprised Santa never filed suit against the Green Giant company for trademark infringement. Santa must not have much of a legal department. I can see why, what good attorney is going to want to work in the north pole?

"HO HO HO! GREEN GIANT!"

If you had access to Findlaw you'd know that Santa did indeed file suit, and won a trademark infringement claim in the early 1980s, S. Claus v. General Mills, 135 DEL. 398,312 P.2d 998 (1983).

I bet that is some interesting case reading, what was the judges write up?

The entire concept is crazy; I mean, what jury is going to rule against Santa?

I'm curious how you would have handled it moon.

without punching a guy in the nose. don't have time to go into details as i'm leaving job #1 for job #2 right now.


I'll be interested to see how you would have handled it differently. Remember that I did mention I probably could have handled it better. I wasn't looking for a fight or looking for trouble. It was a reaction after feeling like I was basically being attacked. I guess you don't know what it feels like or how you'd feel unless it happened to you. Not that it was that traumatic, but the stalking (happy stomper :-B ) compounded by the gay references and touching, put me over the top and I reacted. I would rarely resort to violence but, for the record, it worked this one time. !+)

Maybe you could've slapped him? Me personally I may have reacted the same, but I have never been in that situation. My guess is though I would've backed away fast and obscenities would fly.

Guess I wasn't looking for a literal answer here, was trying to add a little levity to an otherwise serious thread.

I'm pretty sure I'd avoid slapping; that could be miscontrued as foreplay given the situation.

Haha, I was playing at a different joke, but both work.
