    There's a "too many cooks spoil the broth" joke here somewhere.

    Yeah, unfortunately, they're starting to look into her other magazine (called "Travel Source Magazine") and finding that it's got copyright infringement in it too. I suppose, if you ever wrote articles about travel, you'd probably better go take a look to see if she stole from you.

    Imagine that.

    But I can't help but think of all those Dracula movies where the stake didn't *quite* do the job and he kept coming back.

    Hmm.

    Cookula Has Risen from the Yeast!

    Countess Cookula and Her Copyright Infringing Ride!

    Revenge of the Advertisers! (The S.F. movie starring Darth Cooker)

    Billy the Kid VS Cookula.

    Cookula's Daughter! (Starring Paula Dean)

    Cookenstein VS Cookula (Starring Alton Brown and Gordon Ramsey)

    Okay, I'll stop now. I just finished a tough writing gig and need some silliness.

    I have a friend who takes great pride in soothing ruffled feathers when's she's offended someone by saying, instead of a sincere "I'm sorry," something more along the lines of a gushy "I'm so sorry you took it that way. I should apologize for any lack of perception on your part that might have caused you to think less of me."

    That's what this kind of pseudo-apology reminds me of.

    And #3 on Cracked's "The 6 Most Distasterous Attempts at Internet Damage Control" (2011): http://www.cracked.com/article_18954...ontrol_p2.html

    But honestly, Monica, those were some good times ....

    Ooh, I do love a good blast from the past. A reminder of train wrecks that were fun to watch. Until they weren't fun to watch anymore.

    I could have done without the 57,212 (give or take 10,000) Facebook complaints about the missing apostrophe in the magazine's title, however. I guess those people never heard of magazines with names like ... Publishers Weekly. ETA: Not to mention Veterans Affairs and Diners Club, among others.
