That’s pretty much it—your dumbest lawsuit of the week, people.
One note, though: the offending phrase is “If you want to get down — Jump Around!”, while anyone who went to middle school, high school or college in the early 90′s knows that the lyrics are “I came to get down, so get out your seat and jump around”. That’s what we call an oblique reference, making this case as misguided as the (imaginary) time a certain Robert Matthew van Winkle sued Smirnoff Ice.
Thus concludes today’s edition of “90′s Nostalgia You’d Rather Forget.”
(H/T to Death and Taxes for reading the New York Post so we don’t have to.)
