Pitbull (the Rapper) Sues Maker of Pit Bull (the Cocktail)

Entertainer and vodka-company entrepreneur Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his trademarked name, Pitbull, is suing competitor New Amsterdam because of a cocktail it promotes called the Pit Bull. And it’s easy to see why: Pitbull may be part owner of the low-cal fruit-flavored vodka that “everybody wants,” but in a rare turn of events, it doesn’t bear his name. As such, the worst possible thing for completists would be to sidle up to a swanky bar wearing a Pitbull shirt, Pitbull Man cologne, and Pitbull varsity socks, slam his Pitbull blinking shot-glass on the counter, then mistakenly order the wrong drink.
