    I’m not sure if this is an April Fools prank or just unfortunate timing for such an announcement.

    Kmart Sued by McDonald’s for Copyright Infringement over Easter-themed TV Commercial

    Corporate executives for Kmart awoke the day after Easter this year to a hangover more serious than the usual sugar overload. The retail giant received notice today that it is being sued for trademark infringement by McDonald’s over an Easter-themed commercial that featured a fictional animal called a “lamb-bit”, purported to be half lamb and half rabbit.

    In court filings McDonald’s claims the Kmart ad damaged its planned introduction of a new menu item by the same name. The “lamb-bit” commercial gained wide popularity, despite a having only a short run on one cable network, because of rapid viral proliferation as an online video.

    “It took almost seven years to develop the recipe for the Lamb-Bit, and we’ve held the trademark for the since 2009,” said McDonald’s house counsel T.C. Mits in an interview with trade publication Fast Feasts. “It took Kmart just thirty seconds to undo all that.”

    Mits added, “No child will ever agree to eat a Lamb-Bit, much less ask for them, after seeing it portrayed as a live, fluffy Easter gift.”

    A friend of mine brought Krispy Kreme donuts into work today.

    All of her coworkers were thrilled… Until they bit into them and found that they were filled with mayo.
