Funny or Die

We're Suing The Landlord

funny or die landlord
Two years after Will Ferrell picked a fight with his tiny landlord in the video that launched "Funny or Die" ... the comedy website is now picking a fight with its real life property owners ... in a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

In the docs, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Funny or Die, Inc claims it signed a 2-year lease to rent space in an L.A. office building ... and threw down a $200k deposit.

Long story short, the lease expired ... and F.O.D. decided to move out in September. F.O.D. claims the building owners performed a final walk-through and decided everything was cool.

F.O.D. alleges that when it asked for its security deposit back ... building owners went off the radar ... and when they did reappear, the owners still refused to give the money back ... citing damage to the property that wasn't pointed out during the walk-through.

Funny or Die is now demanding the owners return the entire deposit ... plus other damages.

In the meantime, check out the "Landlord" video again ... so good.

Funny or Die is pretty hit or miss but I did watch a funny one last night - "Hannah Mantegna" starring Joe Mantegna as 'Joe Mantegna' and his teenage female alter ego 'Hannah Mantegna'

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! I wouldn't learn any other way, and it makes me look forward to come home from school and get right on. I'm in middle school and stress is not in low numbers, but even still, the language seems to flow through you in a way that's indescribable. BUY THIS PRODUCT!! http://www.ofrosettastone.com/ I'd also recommend taking the whole deal and purchase levels 1-3 or 1-5 because believe me, its worth it!

So what was the outcome of this? Instead of suing them they should challenge them into eating a whole wheel of cheese ;)
