Author Free to Call Women 'Hot Chicks,' Men 'Douchebags'

A New Jersey judge has revealed the secret to calling someone a "douchebag": Make it clear you're just kidding! That's why the Honorable Menelaos Toskos cleared the author of Hot Chicks With Douchebags of defamation.

Jay Louis, the creator of hotchickswithdouchebags.com, turned his blog documenting the couplings of attractive ladies with unattractive men into a book in 2007. He was sued, first by three of the hot chicks in question, and then by one of the douchebags.

Toskos, a New Jersey Superior Court judge, ruled that the women's photographs were "used for humorous social commentary" and that the book was "replete with obvious attempts at satirical humor." In his decision, he wrote that he had "carefully scrutinized" the work in question. We bet. The sad part of Toskos's decision: It comes too late to redeem the tired insult of "douchebag."
