“Dude, her head’s bigger than her pelvis”.

That caption along with the image above was posted over at Boing Boing[HERE] last month which gave Ralph Lauren the angries. They got their lawyers to send over some stop-your-sh*t-now letters saying Boing Boing did not have the rights to post the image and they should remove it immediately.

Boing Boing did not back down and  instead let rip with some mockery and farted this in Ralph’s general direction:

“And every time you threaten to sue us over stuff like this, we will:

a) Reproduce the original criticism, making damned sure that all our readers get a good, long look at it, and;

b) Publish your spurious legal threat along with copious mockery, so that it becomes highly ranked in search engines where other people you threaten can find it and take heart; and

c) Offer nourishing soup and sandwiches to your models.“[Boing Boing]

Ha..well played there Boing Boing. Score one for the little guy. What do recon hey? Is that model bring sexy back or do you feel like throwing her a gatsby and some slap chips?

UPDATE: Ralph Lauren issues statement :”we have learned that we are responsible for the poor imaging and retouching that resulted in a very distorted image of a woman’s body” [More at Extra TV]
