Monster Mini Golf vs. Monster Cable Lawsuit Dropped

Monster Cable, the company that’s quite possibly responsible for manufacturing the HDMI cable running to your flatscreen in your living room, has dropped it’s ridiculous lawsuit against Monster Mini Golf. I had such a fun time at Monster Mini Golf that I uploaded some video I shot when I was there, did a write up, and they sent me some passes for a giveaway here on the Armpit. I know it seems like they’re paying me, but they aren’t!
This was a dispute where Monster Cable felt that the name “Monster Mini Golf” was infringing on their trademark. Check out the Engadget post about it here. What strikes me about this whole dispute is that they never went after Monster Beverages who manufactures energy drinks. Anyone who isn’t high off his ass from a speedball right now can realize that Monster Mini Golf would NEVER be confused with a company that makes super high priced audio/visual cables. Why didn’t they also pick on Monster Ballads while they were at it? For anyone interested, Monster Mini Golf locations can be found all over the country. For a list of them, go here. Meanwhile, if you still have no idea what they are all about, then check out my little Monster montage:

Walk of Shame

I just received these questions in an anonymous e-mail so I figured I would answer them and be a little interactive:

1) Jay, is this really your entry for the day?
I’m not kidding, this really is my blog update
2) There’s no way that this picture is real.
Scout’s honor…this isn’t photoshopped.
3) Cut the crap, who’s the graphics wizard who made this ridiculous picture?
I actually took this photo myself at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.
4) Jay, I just watched the commercial for it, do you think one
would really need rush delivery of Monster Ballads?
No, I don’t think anyone would ever need rush delivery of Monster Ballads
