over the road from my office. without fail, everyone who i've seen go in and out looks like an absolute cunt. let's blow it up!
some people are so joyless. it's not like they're losing any money over this. fuckers.
it was just a silly joke.
pimp my snack >>>>>>> pimp my ride
i remember the guy that tried to make a giant creme egg, but just ended up with a massive creme egg filling pancake. that looked so good...mmmmm
yeah, someone actually achieved the creme egg one though didn't they?
fuck brunel, THAT was some innovative engineering work. legend.
i heard it was impossible, because the chocolate shell just breaks under the weight!
*searches the internet*
but i reckon it's cheating, cos he doesn't make the shell himself:
Lets call around to him and tell him he's a prick
is fairly astonishing. I could maybe understand their initial communication if they had followed it up with a compromise or a bit more understanding. As is rightly pointed out in one of the responses from the website, they clearly believe that they are dealing with someone that isn't necessarily aware of their rights, and seemed intent on just riding roughshod over them until they got what they want.
Heartless, soulless wankers
"in any event, we note you now intend to conduct your operations under the PIMP THAT SNACK name... whilst we do not accept that the carrying on of your activities under the PIMP THAT SNACK mark will necessarily avoid infringement of our client's rights, our client has decided (for purely commercial reasons) that it does not intend to take any further action... we shall therefore keep this matter under review to ensure that you are using the PIMP THAT SNACK mark, rather than the PIMP MY SNACK mark (or any confusingly similar mark), and that further damage is not caused to our clients or its trade marks."
there is SO MUCH wrong with this.
in accepting the name change, they are accepting that the word 'pimp' has passed into popular language. so what would it matter if they carried on using the original?
and like the owner said in his reply, i really doubt anybody looking for modded-up cars went to a website about household snacks.
urgh, this has made me quite angry.
but imagine MAKING one :O it's like, a viable possibility, whereas i'm never going to even have a car, much less one with subwoofers and a jacuzzi.
i made SHERBET JELLY this morning, does that count as pimping?
because all the sherbet seemed to fizz as i poured the water on.
i shall report back.
when bez got his taxi pimped he says he just took all the tvs out afterwards and put them in his house. i imagine thats what most people do, especially with the shit novelty things they put in, like a fucking fish tank or something, yeh like i want a fish tank in my car
yeah. "We put a 70 inch plasma screen UNDER YOUR CAR"
