Is it just me, or did everyone keep thinking of wrestling while reading that article? (WWF=World Wrestling Federation and I don't care what the World Wildlife Fund has to say :-t , the WWF is wrestling. World Wildlife Fund just wanted hits on it's website, the frickin' idiots :-t ).


I have a feeling the World Wildlife Fund was created before the World Wrestling Federation.

The WWF(wrestling) was created in the 80's right?

The World Wildlife Fund was indeed created long before the WWE. That's how they were able to win the court battle. Truth be told, though, the Fund waited until after wrestling had built up the power of the acronym before striking. I think the court should have sided with wrestling out of some sort of advert-oriented squaters logic like with land. You know what I'm talking about, right? If you live on, or do all of the work for, a tract of land for 10 years uncontested, in some jurisdictions, you are awarded ownership of that land.


Good point JT. ;-D

Just because the Fund was founded first, that doesn't mean all that much. When people see or think of the WWF, they are thinking about wrestling. The Fund lost any shred of credibility they had in my eyes when they filed the lawsuit. They only did it because WWF.com got so many hits per day. They simply wanted to cash in on it and that's pathetic because they were not the ones who built the WWF acronym to be so popular.

Anyway, Vince McMahon might not be done with them just yet:

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Former? McMahon was still a billionaire the last time I checked. He doesn't just own World Wrestling Entertainment.

Reminds of Dave Coulier and his nauseatingly stupid Jackalope voice.
