Chubby Checker Sues

Penis-Measurement

Is NOT My Forte'

Chubby Checker (the singer) has his panties in a twist over Chubby Checker (the penis-measuring app) ... and now he's suing to jock-block the people responsible.

The 71-year-old music legend has filed a lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard and Palm (ha, palm) ... claiming they violated his trademark on the name "Chubby Checker" ... by releasing "The Chubby Checker" app, which "enables women to estimate the size of a man's penis based on his shoe size."

Checker says HP and Palm have offered the app in the Palm App Catalog for a long, long, loooooong, time. 

Chubby (the singer) says he fired off a cease and desist letter back in 2012 ... but the companies ignored his demand, so he was forced to take their asses to court.

According to the suit, Chubby not only wants the companies to shut down the app ... he also wants a ton of money for damaging his non-penis measuring reputation.

A rep for HP tells TMZ, "The application was removed in September 2012 and is no longer on any Palm or HP hosted web site."

i myself believe we can find out by adam's apple and if he has a deep voice. i actually worked in urology and we had many discussions re: this. the truth is, if a man has big hands, ( i'm not talking finger length ) chances are he will have big feet, proportinate...then you can assume everything will follow. now, if you meet a shorter man with average hands and feet, deep voice and adam's apple, chances are he's packing.

This is what you do: Go to a bar with your friends, Everyone wearing you're best pair of clown shoes. When some pretty girls show up someone from your group says: "Look at this new app that just came out." The rest is history!

Men's Penis sizes can't be measured by how tall or how big their feet or hands are... sorry... it's like women short women can have big boops and tall ones can have small boops ( what a dumb thing ) beside ... men who knows how to USE IT are the ones who are good lovers *** simple like that ***

Hate to say it, but no matter how big a guy's dick is it's never going to be able to compete with all of these high tech dildos that a lot of women are using these days.

It reminds me of an old Richard Pryor comedy show where he's standing there complaining to his woman "all I got is just a dick!". Richard was a genius comedian.

THE PREDICKTOR app on the front page of Google Play Store is way better !
Women and men can use it to estimate any man's penis size using height and hand size and sexual preference - ALL shown to be correlate...unlike shoe size which is NOT.

What difference does it make if he can't use it? I wouldn't use that crap anyway. The only way to know is to see him happy.
