Corporate Stupidity...... amok.....

God Squad told to cease-and-desist
Virus infected your computer? Call the Geek Squad.

Temptation infected your soul? Ring up the God Squad - just don't expect Father Luke Strand to show up in the car he's been driving since his days in the seminary.

The young priest's attempt to add a little fun to his ministry has apparently run foul of some corporate lawyers who care more about strictly enforcing trademarks than eternal salvation.

Best Buy, the Minnesota-based electronics retailing giant, recently sent Strand a cease-and-desist letter concerning his car. The black Volkswagen Beetle has oval door stickers that read "God Squad" in a logo very similar to the black, white and orange logos on black-and-white Geek Squad Beetles driven by the computer and electronics trouble-shooters.

The car has been around for at least two years, when it was featured in a photo of Strand and his then-colleagues at St. Francis de Sales Seminary. The car has a white square on the hood, to mimic a priest's collar, and the license plate reads, GODLVYA.

And by the way, Fellow Catholics, the first line of this Blog...."Virus infected your computer? Call the Geek Squad."????

Bah! I wouldn't shop Best Buy if they were the only retailer left in business. I won't get into the rant on how many ways I detest that despicable dishonest unethical company.

This story is just one more reason to boycot their miserable existance.
