Whip it! Whip it Good!

Devo is suing McDonalds. Yep, you heard that right.

Apparently, McDonalds has released a series of "American Idol" toys (don't get me started on *that* particular show - *sigh*). The 80's toy is called "New Wave Nigel," and is wearing a Devo-hat on his head. A COPYRIGHTED Devo-hat on his head.


Devo is none-too-pleased about this. Especially considering that Devo took it's name from "De-Evolution" - the idea that society, with the help of things like McDonalds and American Idol, has de-evolved/regressed. Irony!
