Rock-and-roll legend Chubby Checker has apparently sued HP and Palm over a webOS app designed to calculate penis size. In a press release, attorney Willie Gary argues that Checker (aka Ernest Evans) has been caused "irreparable damage and harm" by the app, which is also called "Chubby Checker:"

Despite numerous attempts to cease the "app," Hewlett Packard refused to dismantle the operation and, therefore, continues to perpetuate degrading and derogatory content directly linked to Chubby Checker. The "app" adversely affects Chubby Checker's brand and value and if allowed to continue, will cause serious damage to the Plaintiff's goodwill and will tarnish his image that he has worked to maintain over the last 50 years.

We've reached out to both Checker and his attorney for further comment. HP hasn't actually produced Palm devices since 2011, and webOS is currently open source, but Checker is reportedly seeking $500,000 in damages, presumably including profits from the $0.99 app. Magic Apps, which developed the offending software, no longer appears to even exist, and it's highly unlikely anybody could really be held responsible at this point. If Checker is genuinely worried about the brand, this is a classic example of the Streisand effect

in all honesty, we're not even sure how he found this obscure app for a nigh-dead platform in the first place.

He probably just google'd his name (brand/w/e) like the rest of us do periodically.

The story doesn't tell if the "irreparable damage and harm" was cause by the name of the app or the result given by the app after he tried it.

"Pecker Checker" would have been a better name.

I hope you're joking...

Ever heard of the Palm Pre? Palm/HP Touchpad? That's what it ran.

How sad of a human do you have to be to even need or want an app like this.

Have people become that stupid that they don't know how to use a ruler. :shiftyninja:

They really had no right to use his name for the app. It's seems like he is endorsing it and he is not.

I wonder if they will have to prove the validity of the app in court and just how slanderous it is to CC?
