In a story bound to shock the world (or at least bits of the first world) Formula One also ran (thank you) Jenson Button is suing the makers of the movie "The curious case of Benjamin Button" as well as the estate of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote the short story on which said film is based.
In an interview Jenson has stated the idea was ripped off by Fitzgerald from his great grandfather Benjamin Button. originally the story was told by Granpa Button to fitzgerald over a cup of hot liquid (records are sketchy on the precise liquid) and the "curious case" was a reference to a suitcase that Benjamin had that he said was shaped like "Tim Henman taking a dump on a wooly mammoth".
It was curious as Mammoths had become extinct and Tim Henman's had yet to be born.
"I was willing to ignore the book due to the silliness of it but now the bloody thing's gonna make millions at the Box Office and I won't stand for it" said Button, sitting on a chair. "I mean why would people even prefer the story of a child born old that gets younger when compared to the story of one man's rather weird suitcase? It baffles me", said a baffled little button. "They'll be hearing from my lawyers thats for sure". he then trailed off and picked up a yellow pages. "er, why is there no section for lawyers in this f**king book?" swore the butt.
We then left him after telling him they are called solicitors over here. Twat.
A spokesman connected with the movie issued this statement in reply: "Obviously, with the greatest respect, Mr Button is a moron. a total numpty"
Right on the button we'd have to agree!
