“So you’re admitting there’s an infringement of copyright here?”

“Hey, man! I never said that. I only meant that I’ve always admired Dig’em.”

“Objection! Badgering the witness!”

“Overruled. The prosecution may proceed.”

“Thank you, Your Honor. Let me ask you this, Mr. For Sure—”

“It’s actually pronounced Fo’ Sho’. As in ‘Yo! These Honey Slaps are tasty fo’ sho’!'”

“I see. I understand the breakfast cereal you represent recently changed its name. Is this correct?”

“Objection! Leading the witness!”

“Overruled. Please continue.”

“As I was saying, could you please tell the jury what your cereal used to be known as?”

“Uh, yeah. It was Sugar Slaps up until 2004.”

“Interesting. Were you aware, Mr. Fo’ Sho’, that your main competitor, Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, had been known as Sugar Smacks up until one month before No-Name Brand Foods changed your cereal’s name?”

“Objection! Argumentative question!”

“Overruled! The defense will come to order! The prosecution may proceed.”

“Thank you, Your Honor. Would the witness kindly answer my previous question?”

“Umm, yeah. I do recall something about the sugar content and Kellogg’s trying to change the Sugar Smacks image.”

“Do you remember your employers explaining why your cereal’s name had changed?”

“Yeah. Something about being ahead of Honey Smacks alphabetically in the National Registry of Food Brands or something.”

“Thank you Mr. Fo’ Sho’ the Honey Slaps Toad. No further questions, Your Honor.”

“Does the defendant have another witness?”

“Yes, Your Honor. The defense calls Macaw Sam, the Fruit Circles parrot to the stand.”
