To think you can get a patent for the translucent nature of some materials - bah!

Dear David,

This letter serves you with notice to cease and desist your unlawful use of the English word "bah", which our client has patented. To quote the U.S. Supreme Court, in their momentous and unanimous decision allowing patenting of exisitng words: "Sure, why not?" We refer you to the subsequent case of Sheep versus FoolYap, in which the defendant was found guilty and successfully sued for infringement, willful intent to cause economic hardship, and emotional damage.

Also, please note that a patent is pending for the phrase "bite me", so your plans for the future use of that phrase should be modified accordingly.

Yours, the law firm of Dewie, Cheatum & Howe, representing the emotionally damaged FoolYap
