HOLLYWOOD, CA - An attorney for the Wolfman filed suit in federal court against actor Joaquin Phoenix for emotional distress and copyright infringement. "My client is famous for a bushy appearance," said attorney Gibson Butler. "He has no control over this look once the full moon has risen and the wolf bane blooms. Mr. Phoenix, on the other hand, has grooming options." In addition, Butler felt Phoenix' recent appearance on the David Letterman Show had damaged the Wolfman's self-esteem. "People mistake my client for Mr. Phoenix and ask him if he's high. And while my client then rips out their throats and drinks their still-warm blood, his feelings have been devalued. This must stop."
