As my readers are well aware, a few months ago Palmetto Goodwill’s law firm complained to WordPress that I was violating copyright law by posting images of their pathetic mascot, Smiling G. I was also accused of using copyrighted images of their store fronts.
Even though the nice folks at WordPress told me to sit back and wait, I went ahead and took down the “offending” images of their two dollar mascot costume and their store fronts and replaced them with my own imaginary Palmetto Goodwill Mascot, Bongo Monkey Turd.
Say hi to the folks, BMT…
I have to thank Palmetto Goodwill and Nexsen Pruet (PG’s law firm) for their actions in trying to silence me. As a result of that bit of legal mumbo jumbo, my creative instinct wandered into frontiers heretofore unexplored. I only hope that they can find some reason to further stymie my assault on this phony baloney “charity.” Lord only knows what may ooze out of my mind if that happens!
Anyway, I have created a whole new blog called Smiling G Sucks. Just getting started with this idea but I expect that, over time, this new site will offer up even more in the way of goofy parodies. It’s going to take a while to get this new task fully implemented so be patient…
I suppose that I am in for another round of noodle lashing from Goodwill’s law firm…yawn. I wish they would just cut the crap and sue me. There’s nothing more that I would like to do than to put old Bob on the stand and ask him to read the article “Did Palmetto Goodwill CEO Lie to the Charleston Post and Courier?” to a jury. I can see it now. His head would probably start spinning around and he would be spewing pea soup in every which direction. Hard to get a jury on your side when they are forced to wipe green puke off their bifocals.
Do they allow cameras in a courtroom? I hope so ’cause I would slap that puppy up on YouTube in a heartbeat. Bob would become the latest (albeit unemployed) internet sensation.
If you google “Bob Smith Palmetto Goodwill” and click on “images” you will discover that my photoshops have practically taken over. It varies from day to day but last night I checked in and found that forty-nine out of fifty of the top rated pictures were my uploads. That has to be taking a toll on Palmetto Goodwill’s image in the community.
Once again, I have a standing offer to meet with the Palmetto Goodwill Board of Directors and PG’s attorneys (sans Robert) to see if we can find an amicable way to end this crusade.
