Warner Bros. Goes Down Hard On Swiss Condom Manufacturer

Well, boys and girls, it appears that lawyers at Warner Brothers are out to establish that the combination of glasses and a wand is a rigid designator (in fact, an obstinately rigid desgnator).  They are suing Swiss condom manufacturer Magic X over their "Harry Popper" condom bearing the likeness of a young man in round glasses, carrying a wand, his tongue sticking out.

"Everyone who sees the condoms automatically thinks of Harry Potter," says a lawyer for the studio.

"Our product has nothing to do with Harry Potter," claims a spokesperson for the company.
