Chubby Checker sues Hewlett-Packard over ‘penis measuring’ app. Sounds to us like Chubby is being a real prick.

Guess he doesn’t measure up. Guess he doesn’t have to worry about someone stepping on his blue suede shoes.

Maybe a compromise would be “Stubby Checker?”

I have to agree with Mr. Checker on this one. Besides, any app that makes that claim is obviously a joke.

I agree. I just measured my foot and it was at least two inches longer.

Good career move.

I guess it’s based on shoe size, which means Chubby’s ballerina slippers just don’t cut it.

As a woman married to a man with size 13 feet, I can testify that this app is correct! Just sayin…

Seriously though – I understand that this is the man’s trademark faked name. But the name actually “means” something. It is not a stretch to see where the app name came from (and most likely from someone who had no clue who the singer even is.) No one would ever confuse the app with the singer.

You know what? I think I am going to become a singer. I am going to change my name to Apple Pie. And ANYTIME anyone uses that term for any reason than to describe me, I will sue them. And I will get all kinds of media attention for it. So people will subscribe to my facebook and twitter because they are all mindless sheep. And I will be the next (taller and slimmer and fairer) Kim Kardashian. And I can’t even carry a tune in a bucket.

Taller would not be real easy, but fairer and slimmer would be a piece of cake! Don’t forget smarter and less annoying!

No prob on the taller – I am just shy of six feel tall, barefoot. By the way, that explains my husband’s size 13′s – he is 6’5″. So I can still wear heels, lol.

Well, I’m 6’2″, shoe size depends on what kind, but 12-13 is normal.
I will admit shoe, hand, and nose size means nothing here. All 3 are large, but that’s about it.

Karmaa, you could, and should, wear heels anyway, regardless of your husband’s height. I did an impromptu photo shoot a couple weekends ago in AZ, after hours at a RenFaire. The girl, Chelsea, is 6’1″, perfectly proportioned, and very good looking. She wears platform heels all the time. If you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Next year, she’s going to be working for us in the booth for our AZ event.

Maybe Fats Domino should sue Chubby Checker.

Big hands, big feet – you ladies know what that means, right?

Yep. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

The non-story of the day. Chubby Checkers is a washed up has-been who hasn’t done anything in 40 years. He needs the money so he’ll settle for a modest amount of cash.

Not done anything n 40 years?

How could you have forgotten about this?

Seriously though it is hard to think of a one hit (or is it two when you consider the twist sequel he had . . . or three when you throw the fat boys into the mix?) wonder that has gotten more mileage out of a song he covered from someone else.

I once shared a sauna with a 6’7″ pro football interior lineman. His hands and feet were wildly inaccurate prognostications about the size of other parts. Frankly, I was surprised he could have children. Of course, none of the rest of us dared say anything because he could kill us all with one arm behind his back…

I’ve heard that steroid use reduces things to vienna sausage and acorn size. I am no expert, but if I saw a guy that big and bulky with such disproportionate equipment, I might be suspicious. Not that I would ever look. Ever.
