A Hard Case to Prove

Michael Minelli wants you to know he's not a douchebag, or at least, he doesn't think so. That's why he's suing the author and publisher of the book "Hot Chicks With Douchebags" for including him. The libel lawsuit should be interesting, as the lawyers will have to establish the relative "douchebaggery" of Minelli. I think the prosecution might have a hard time after seeing a picture of Minelli, who claims the book has caused him to receive "hatred, contempt, and humiliation" and has resulted in "friends, acquaintances, coworkers, employees, and strangers alike" calling him a "douchebag." Here's a quick excerpt of the page in question:
[Minelli's] popped-collar, spikey-haired presence was so far beyond regular douche, so far beyond uberdouche, he could spontaneously create a new element on the periodic tables--Douche Nine.

But what if he's in cahoots with the book people? His lawyer cousin phones it in for $500 and loses the trial; they get the free publicity for "the book they tried to ban", and it turns out his uncle is the publisher or something. Still douchebaggery, maybe just a different kind of douchebaggery.

"The fantastic thing about suits like this is that the DB in question has zero chance of winning, and at the same time he is both drawing tons of attention to his douchbaggery, and helping promote the book, making his enemy tons more money.

So not only is he a DB, but he’s a fool to boot."
