Colombian Coffee Growers To Sue Over US Cartoon

Colombian coffee growers are brewing up a lawsuit over a U.S. comic strip joking that violence is so rampant there, maybe 'there's a little bit of Juan Valdez in every can' of the country's java.

The Colombian Coffee Growers Federation says it has consulted with U.S. lawyers and will sue 'Mother Goose & Grimm' cartoonist Mike Peters 'for damage and harm, detriment to intellectual property and defamation.'

Dear Colombian Coffee Growers,

Your coffee isn't that good. Get over yourselves, and learn to take a joke, losers.

Ummm, I guess they don't quite grasp the concept of "Freedom of Speech." The american lawyers, that is, not the coffee growers.
