Yesterday we were faxed a letter written by New Yorker writer (and sometime Gawker contributor) Ben Greenman. It's addressed to actor and "Knocked Up" schlub Seth Rogen. Turns out that Rogen's next film, coming out in August, is called "Superbad." That turns out to be the title of Greenman's 2001 McSweeney's book. We're torn—we respect that Greenman didn't go straight to the lawyers over his (uh, dubious) claim, but we also think the letters are a big pot of crazy. Judge for yourself!
