“This New Wave Nigel doll that they’ve created is just a complete Devo rip-off and the red hat is exactly the red hat that I designed, and it’s copyrighted and trademarked. “They didn’t ask us anything. Plus, we don’t like McDonald’s, and we don’t like American Idol, so we’re doubly offended.” Yep. Devo is suing McD’s and American Idol over the use of the “Energy Dome” hat. And Robert Mugabe was sworn in, hands on the Bible, afer winning the “election” in Zimbabwe.
Who wins the Most Ridiculous Award in this head-to-head? A band that railed against the de-evolution and dysfunction of American society that uses the very tools of that society to battle its corporate icons… Or a guy who steals his 184th election and swears that the results are legit? At least Devo’s move has some cunning irony. Mugabe must be drinking Viagra milkshakes every day just to keep his balls in shape.
