Lawsuits of the Stupid

The filmmakers behind “Indiana Jones” are real-life tomb raiders, a lawsuit says.
An archaeologist from Belize is suing Lucasfilm for featuring a replica of a stolen Mayan “crystal skull” in its most recent sequel, starring Harrison Ford.
Scientist Jaime Awe claims Hollywood hot shots used a model of the swiped Belizean relic in the 2008 flick, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” to rake in “illegal profits.”
Awe, who is suing on behalf of the Central American country, demands the company fork over a portion of the movie’s $768 million profit to his homeland.
In other news, Jim Carey is suing Jamie Awe for re-establishing his Dumb & Dumber character, Lloyd Christmas, without permission.   And, the inhabitants of the Ukraine in 10,000 BC are suing the Germans for use of the Swastika.
