Cease and Desist?
Oh dear. Found this on my site-tracker tonight:
For those of you who have never read the "Flippism" link in the sidebar, "Flipism" made its first appearance in a Donald Duck comic in the mid 1950's. The villain of the story, Professor Batty, was a pitchman who sold Donald a self-help book entitled Flipism Is The Key. Donald took its advice literally, basing all of his decisions on flipping a coin. Needless to say, disaster ensued. When I started this humble effort Professor Batty was just one of a number of fictional characters (thankfully, this early version of the blog has been long deleted.) When I started writing regularly I took up the Professor's persona- that of a fast-talking con-man- but applied it to broader and more non-fictional uses. I had actually used the Flippist name for a record business in the 70's and 80's; there is even an IRS tax number under that name.
So, if you are from Disney legal and are monitoring this blog- give me a break, please. I've got a case for prior use, and at least I spelled it right.
