'When Harry Met Sally' Deli

Sues To Stop Knock-Off Orgasms

3/12/2014 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE




The NYC Deli where Meg Ryan faked an orgasm is coming after an impostor in court ... claiming it's the only deli that can trade on phantom gratification.

Katz's Deli -- one of the most famous in New York -- claims Katz & Dogz -- a food truck that touts its Reuben Orgasm -- is jacking its act by creating an orgasmic theme.

Katz claims in its lawsuit ... it's become an icon of NYC as a result of "When Harry Met Sally."  In fact, the lawsuit touts that customers line up to sit at the Sally table to fake their own ... which probably makes lunch really annoying.

They even make groaners in laying claim to the franchise.  There's a placard on the table that says, "Where Harry met Sally ... Hope you have what she had!"

So Katz is indignant that a cheap, 4-wheeled imitation is trading on its name and rich history.

Katz wants the food truck permanently garaged.  They also want all the money from those delicious -- though undoubtedly greasy -- Reuben Orgasms.

There's a problem here    

It was cute at the time because Meg Ryan was so damn cute (before she messed her face up with surgery) and always played the sweet-girl-next-door type so the fake orgasm was cute in the movie. In real life, it was kind of hokey. Those internet babes and women of porn can do a lot better than her. Not that I would know anything about that ...

Just because a movie showing a fake orgasm was filmed in your deli, you do not own the word orgasm.

I was only about 8 when that movie came out, always wanted to go to Katz's (to see what all the hype is about) but I'll be sitting as far away as possible from that table.

Well you tried it just for once
found it all right for kicks.
but now you found out that it's a habit that sticks.
And you're an orgasm addict, an orgasm addict.
Sneaking in the back door with dirty magazines.
Your mother wants to know
about those stains on your jeans.
And you're an orgasm addict, an orgasm addict.

That's funny! Katz deli, who exploits for profit a scene made famous in a movie that the deli had nothing to do with other than allowing filming, is pissed that somebody else is using "orgasm" as a marketing tool? This lawsuit is about as frivolous as they come. If anything, the studio should sue Katz deli for exploiting the success of the movie.

I did know orgasms were the soul property of any place or anyone. If they were, my wife and I would really be in big trouble.

I can see how anyone could become confused between a deli where people fake orgasms and a truck. I can't tell the difference myself.

I'll tell my wife to stop faking them too, just in case they sue us.
