Minnelli makes a song and dance over potato promotion

IT'S the spud-she-doesn't like. Liza Minnelli has reportedly taken exception to a Scottish potato breeder's use of a picture of her from the musical Cabaret to promote its new strain of spud, called Cabaret.

"Cygnet Potato Breeders"?

Maybe we should tie this in with the Swan Lake thread in "Issues"?

One UK company promotion used drawings of famous people without naming them and this was ruled as impervious to a court challenge. On the other hand my memory is that a photo image would have been treated differently.

So Cygnet seem to be at risk to a successful court. Would that make them a lame duck?

It might well be their swan song.

Is someone writing this stuff for you or are you just winging it?
