Chubby Checker sues Hewlett-Packard over app to measure penis size

Rock'n'roll pioneer Chubby Checker is suing two computer companies for allowing his name to be used as the title of an app that guesses the size of a man's penis.

Checker's lawyers are seeking half a billion dollars for the "irreparable damage and harm" caused by the Chubby Checker, an app for Hewlett-Packard's Palm OS platform. "This lawsuit is about preserving the integrity and legacy of a man who has spent years working hard at his musical craft and has earned the position of one of the greatest musical entertainers of all time," explained lawyer Willie Gary.

The creator of the Twist is demanding "all profits" amassed by the defendants in association with the Chubby Checker - an amount that somehow approaches $500m, according to his lawyers' press release. As noted in response by TCPalm, one software website shows that the $0.99 app has been downloaded just 84 times.....soon to be 85 times if they put the app back up.

What the hell is going on over at Hewlett-Packard?!
