Lindsay Lohan Sues E*Trade Over Milkaholic

This is awesome. The New York Post reports that Lindsay Lohan is suing E*Trade for $100 million, claiming that the boyfriend-stealing "milkaholic" named Lindsay in the company's Super Bowl commercial above from Grey Advertising was clearly modeled after her. "Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E*Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Lohan's lawyer says. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan." It's anyone's guess why Lohan would claim that a two-bit skank was clearly inspired by her. Still, if she has stepped down to milkaholism from all that booze and blow, she might actually live to see 25. A rep at Grey tells the Post that the name Lindsay is "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team."
