Laaaame! Austin Skater Crackerjack Sued over Derby Name

Derby girls, here’s another reason for not eating Frito-Lay products (aside from the empty calories). It seems that the corporation is suing derby girl Colleen Bell, aka Crackerjack, for copyright infringement, because her name is too close to that of the caramel popcorn and peanut treat Cracker Jacks. Yes, they are actually suggesting that a roller derby skater might be confused with or tarnish the name of a frickin’ snack.

Ridiculous! What, did they sue to get royalties every time the crowd sings “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at a baseball game?

What a bunch of Cracker Jackasses.

  1. Totally lame. Can they even do that? The word “crackerjack” has its own definition and etymology, apart from the development and history of the snack food. I would get a crackerjack lawyer on the case and counter-sue. 😉
