The Acme Button Manufacturing Company, makers of the popular smiley face buttons, has filed a $20 Million lawsuit against a Melrose Park fireworks company, alleging theft of their popular button design. “Those bastards at the button company have made billions selling those damn yellow buttons”, said Tony Lomazzo, Chief Pyrotechnic Design Specialist and inventor of the face shaped fireworks. “How can you copyright happiness? We’re going to counter sue. Those pricks won’t be smiling when I’m done with them.” Pending outcome of the suit, the fireworks company has agreed to temporarily replace the smile with a round mouth hole.
