Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry's, of kid-friendly, super-wholesome ice cream flavors like Cherry Garcia, is suing a porn company for trademark infringement, the New York Post reports.

According to the lawsuit, Caballero Video has been hawking a "Ben & Cherry's" series of porn videos, with ice cream flavor-inspired titles. So "Cherry Garcia" became "Hairy Garcia," Boston Cream Pie became "Boston Cream Thigh," and Peanut Butter Cup inspired "Peanut Butter D-Cup." Whoever came up with these titles must have been plastered.

Video covers also reporteldy lifted design elements from ice cream containers, like the innocent white clouds, blue skies, and grazing cows. According to the lawsuit, the side-by-side comparison "evidences defendants’ blatant and outrageous copying and misappropriation of the Ben & Jerry’s intellectual property."

Naturally, Ben & Jerry's is demanding all of Caballero's profits from the Ben & Jerry's porn movies, plus asks that all the movies delivered to them "for destruction," and they are seeking compensation for unspecific damages. We imagine the folks behind Caballero are all needing a stiff drink right about now. But now we can spend the rest of the day coming up with naughty ice cream titles (Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack already has high potential for innuendo).
