Black Eyed Peas v. Pooping Unicorns

BMG is suing the makers of Poopsie Slime Surprise for ripping off "My Humps" with their own song, "My Poops."

Poopsie Slime Surprise comes from MGA, who are responsible for the Bratz line of dolls. According to the lawsuit, "My Poops" plays on one of the dolls when you press a button on its belly, leading both to dance moves and to a less savory movement: the toys "excrete sparkling slime." [...]

"My poops, my poops my poops my poops," the unicorn sings. The lyrics continue, "Whatcha gonna do with all that poop, all that poop," and adds, "I drive my parents crazy, I do it every day."

BMG alleges that Poopsie Slime Surprise has made MGA tens of millions of dollars and that the company ignored cease-and-desist warnings. They are asking for a steaming $10 million in damages.

    The most surprising thing about this is that Hasbro has not already glassed the product line and everyone associated with it.

    Rave culture lead to this, hasn't it?

    Kids versions of pop songs are so common, I wonder how this could happen. I mean in Finland Smurfs have published 24 CDs.
