    Lol, I'm hoping very few fell for that. It is cute though, using the Federal notice. Now though I'm curious if the Feds would deem using that as illegal. God only knows, the way they are going with the infringement crap.

    You can have a recursive joke. You use a joke about infringement using infringing material. You get an infringement notice about infringing infringement using infringing material. After a while, the Internet explodes.
