I just couldn’t leave this one alone.

The “iconic” Lindsay Lohan is suing E*TRADE because one of the babies they use in their commercials shares her same first name.  Yep, for real!

I guess I didn’t know that Lohan now owns the rights to that particular name.  Maybe parents should be paying her royalties every time the legion of American Lindsays write their name on term papers, create a YouTube or Facebook account, or even-dare I say-get a job as a radio or television personality.

Lohan claims by default is this case that her first name is as recognizable to her as Oprah, Tiger or Madonna.  Hmmm…

Here’s the funny part to me, and really the answer to why this is so rediculous.  Lohan’s attorney, Stephanie Ovadia, suggested to The New York Post, “They’re using her name as a parody of her life.  Why didn’t they use the name Susan?”  Are you friggin’ kidding me! 

Here’s to hoping Sarandon, St. James and Lucci aren’t as sensitive as Lohan, as they are all clearly more important in the entertainment industry.

Ovadia, as an attorney, isn’t it your job to have some sort of grip on the real world?  Perhaps someone in your position could provide some measure of level-headed thought to clients such as Lohan who obviously are living in a world more akin to Alice in Wonderland than planet Earth?

Check out the commercial here and let me know what you think?

Thank goodness B. Anthony has passed and she has her own coin.  Hopefully that is enough for her ego.
