Sole survivor: Stallone in Pyrrhic victory over shoe fetish website

A federal judge in New York has tossed out a million dollar copyright infringement suit filed by a foot fetish website against Sylvester Stallone‘s magazine, Sly.bigpic_fishbowl.jpg

The website, slymagazine.com, had filed suit against Stallone’s lifestyle and fitness magazine for men over 40 alleging the similarity in name would confuse members.

Sadly, a spokeswoman for “Sly’s” owner American Media – no doubt wearing (pant, pant) cruel, six-inch spiked (pant, pant) patent leather heels showing lots of toe cleavage – (ahem) said that “The last issue is on the newsstand and there will be no additional issues.”

We’ll let you be the judge: Slymagazine.com vs. Sly’s magazine.
