Continuing on today’s HST riff…

douchebag

Even a goddamn douchebag is entitled to legal counsel:

Claiming that he has been unfairly branded a “douchebag” in the book “Hot Chicks with Douchebags,” a Las Vegas man has filed a libel lawsuit against the volume’s author and publisher. Michael Minelli, a 27-year-old club promoter, claims that the inclusion of his photograph in the book has subjected him to “hatred, contempt, and humiliation” and has resulted in “friends, acquaintances, coworkers, employees, and strangers alike” calling him a “douchebag.”

“Friends, acquaintances, coworkers, employees, and strangers alike” were all calling the guy a douchebag? Employees!!??

His employees could at least call him “MISTER Douchebag”.

    Or how about “DoucheBOSS”?

    DoucheBOSS… not bad. Not bad at all.

    Loved the quote from the book:

    In the book, Louis noted that Minelli’s “popped-collar, spikey-haired presence was so far beyond regular douche, so far beyond uberdouche, he could spontaneously create a new element on the periodic tables–Douche Nine.”

    :lol:

    A new element… whoa. When confronted with that kind of imminent high-octane douchebaggery, I automatically raise my Defense Level to DoucheCon One.

    Somehow I suspect that many of his employees and other people were referring to this guy as a douche bag long before he appeared in the book.

    JJ–I like the new joint!

    Yeah, you never know, rev. Some people are born into douchebaggery, arriving into the world as innocent newborn douchebabies.

    Somebody stop me!!! :P

    Michael Minelli?

    You’d think he’d just be grateful they’ve stopped calling him Liza.
