Just Try to Stop the Who Dats!

You remember this cute tee shirt that supports my Saints and a clever local business. 

Do you also remember the lawsuit for trademark infringement by some guys who lucked into obtaining a mark based on some obscure, unsuccessful song filed against the NFL, several local businesses (including Fleurty Girl), the state of Louisiana, and the Saints organization ?  The Louisiana Attorney General has weighed in with an opinion, along with Junior Senator David Vitter.  Now it's coming to a head, even though trial isn't scheduled until next summer, with hearings on pre-trial motions this week.

The Saints organization doesn't seem to be backing down.  It has responded by starting the tradition of a "Who Dat!" chant before the beginning of every home game led by the game's honorary Captain from the 30 yard line right before kick-off:

And, after a brief period of time having its Facebook page shut down by various powers that be, Fleurty Girl returned on Wednesday with a vote for its latest tee shirt design!  And the winner is:

You gotta love entrepreneurs!  The original lemonade-out-of-lemons people. 

You can pre-order the shirt here, but only for a limited time.  I'm thinking everyone on my Christmas list could be sporting a Fleurty Girl creation this year!

I'll keep you briefed.


  1. Dang. Forgive me, but... "Only In America!" Which is prolly copyrighted by someone, somewhere, too.

    I'd LOVE to see a judge... ANY judge... say "Get the f!#k out of my courtroom! Dismissed!"

  2. It is clever beyond belief, isn't it!

    I'm witcha, Buck -- just any measure of judicial common sense would be greatly appreciated these days.

  3. Watch what happens next week. The law will prevail.

  4. oh.. a few more factual tid bits:

    The idea of the chant at the start of the game was in agreement with Who Dat?, Inc. and Drew Brees.

    Evidence will come out proving that Fleurty Girl actually had an agreement with Who Dat?, Inc. that she broke. It seems she knew she would make more money playing the "victim", and the media along with a lot of people played right into her hands.

    Stay tuned kids... the truth will shock you. Have you ever been surprised at how wrong you were about something? Well get ready to be humbled again.

  5. Looks like there's somone trolling!
