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."

Duh. What he should sue them for is not gauging it by hand and finger size which is the most accurate measurement.

The boys at TMZ are always thrilled to talk about penis. They just can't help themselves. A bunch of nobody's who bully and pick on anyone. Harvey Levin is a piece of crap who surrounds himself with a bunch of children. He is the same as Jerry Springer. Levin will do anythig to push the gay agenda no matter who he insults. Get used to it.

Chubby for a pecker denotes a fat member that is not well hung. So what this really is is a vanity device for the average Joe who is less than eight inches.
