Yr. Old Skool Hulk Hogan Frivolous Lawsuit of the Week

You could not make this shit up if you tried, srsly. And we here at Arabian FaceBuster have tried, oh how we've tried!

A Million Monkeys Working at a Million Typewriters for a Million Years wouldn't even have come close. From the

Hulk Hogan is suing Post Cereals, the maker of Cocoa Pebbles cereal, after they allegedly used his likeness in a commercial.

In the “Cocoa Smashdown” commercial, a cartoon character resembling Hogan wrestles Fred and Barney (of the Flintstones cartoon) but then gets smashed by baby Bamm-Bamm.

According to the federal lawsuit, Hulk “is shown humiliated and cracked into pieces with broken teeth, with the closing banner, ‘Little Pieces…BIG TASTE!’” He also claims that he has been harmed by “the unauthorized and degrading depictions in the Cocoa Smashdown advertisements.”

The lawsuit says Post Foods never sought or received Hogan’s permission to use his likeness and ignored Hogan’s requests to discontinue the ads.

Yes, yes dear Hulkster, it truly degrades and defames your other-wise pristine and carefully manicured public image to get "humiliated and cracked into pieces" by a prehistoric cartoon baby.

Yabba- Dabba- Doo indeed!

Hulk Bolder has far too much hair and wrestling ability to ever be confused with Hulk Hogan.

This case is without merit.

He also put Bam-Bam & Pebbles over.

No chance in hell its an accurate representation.

Me thinks Lindsey Lohan's lawsuit against E-Trade over the "milkaholic" day trading infant named Lindsey has more merit.

It's Bulk Boulder Malibu, not Hulk Boulder.

I suggest unlike the Hulkster you watch this clip more than once, with the sound on to truly appreciate its masterful use of allegorical satire.

My mistake.

Bulk Boulder's skin is white, not orange. That would seem to be both a sufficient and necessary condition to demonstrate resemblance.

This lawsuit is frivolous.
