i encountered the greatest case name ever yesterday:
Pirates Hyjacked Robbed and Stole Everything, Inc. v.
State Fair Park Exposition Center, 318 B.R. 502 (Bankr. W.D.Wis. 2004).
now, when you read that, what do you think is going on? i don't know about you, but after reading the caption i immediately assumed that the contract with the convention center was for some kind of geeky convention, maybe cosplay or LARPing. seriously, what other kinds of events would a company called Pirates Hyjacked Robbed and Stole Everything run?
well, i was completely wrong. the company was in the business of running trade shows. that's right, trade shows! sadly, they were not even trade shows for cool things like cannons, peg legs, rum, and pirate hats. they ran things like the "milwaukee home and garden show" and the "great midwest log home and timber frame show". this, of course, leaves me rather unsurprised that the company declared bankruptcy. who would hire a company called Pirates Hyjacked Robbed and Stole Everything, Inc. to run a SRS BSNS >:-[ trade show? on the other hand, it's equally hard to understand someone who wanted to name their business something as whimisical as Pirates Hyjacked Robbed and Stole Everything, Inc. running something as boring and mundane as trade shows.
however...if this law thing doesn't work out, maybe i'll buy the rights to that name from the bankrupt entity and use it for my company. i don't yet know what my company would do, but it would definitely involve cooler stuff than home, garden, and timber frame shows.
