Britney Spears Takes On Presumably Unfunny Morning-Radio DJ

bsdj.jpgThe Smoking Gun is reporting that Britney Spears’ lawyers sent a strongly worded letter to a Florida radio station that used unauthorized paparazzi pictures of the singer in its promotional billboards. The ads, which were for MJ Kelli’s morning-radio program, feature images from Britney’s bald phase, and are about as funny as you’d expect from a “wacky DJ,” meaning that they’re completely obvious and two months old, joke-wise. We’re all for first-amendment rights, of course, but if it takes legal threats to silence our nation’s zinger-spewing knuckleheads, we’d be willing re-write the Patriot Act. Again.

    Of course, when Britney is the eventual victor of this battle, everyone will be asking, “who woulda thunk?”

    Great headline.

    I hope this doesn’t affect this week’s installment of “Postman Queerbo’s Male Call,” or, “A visit from Dr. Roof Breastenhimer.” Just helps the drive time zip by.

    Gotta link to this. Sums it up quite well.

    i live down the street from one of these billboards.
    they’ve been up for a couple of months now.
    weird that it took this long for the lawyers to get wind of them.
