In a shocking declaration, the lovable and perma-depressed Eeyore announced his intent to sue the U.S. Democratic Party for the unauthorized use of his grandmother's image! Eeyore claims that the symbol used by the Democrats legally belongs to him, thus making him entitled to over 178 years of unsettled royalties.
"That's my Mee-Maw," the über-morose quadruped told the Underground Reporter. "They took her picture and stole our color."
Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean denied allegations that after being notified of the suit, Dean contacted the blue cartoon character and threatened to "fly down to Disney World and erase [his] a**."
A similar claim was filed against the Republicans by Babar the elephant and Dumbo, but was halted after they were apprehended and sent to Guantanamo Bay. VP Cheney released a statement that there was evidence connecting the pachyderms to Al Qaeda.
