Chabela's Versus Cabela's

There's an amusing forum row between two people going by "miaomiao" and "Woofwoof" over a new restaurant opening in Wallingford called Chabela's. Most people believe that the Chabela's trademark looks too much like the Cabela's trademark...

Maybe not news of the world, but definitely an amusing half-hour of Wallingford neighborly absurdity.

Rick sent this days ago, but the thread is still going. Everyone should hold hands with Dave Matthews and take some deep breaths.

Weird, I guess restaurants called Chabela's just like script fronts.…

Making it yellow with drop shadow sure takes it up a notch, though.

Last Cabela's I was in smelled like a broken bottle of deer piss, an association I'd avoid if I were opening a restaurant. Then again, Furr's buffets do well for themselves, so what do I know?

I have no idea what the culinary attractions of Chabela's might be, but, for me at least, Cabela's is probably the foremost retail outlet as far as enjoying the male eye candy goes.

Yeah, I see a cease and desist letter in their future.

See I'm thinking it's obvious that miaomiao and Woofwoof are the same person. I imagine some good Gollum/bad Gollum thing going on with their reflection in his or her laptop screen.

Funny. Since its happening in Wallingford it's silly and laughable. But when it's a Capitol Hill Newspaper blogger beating up a Coffee shop owner it's serious journalism and political activism.

"Miaomiao" is one of the latest incarnations of a frequent commenter (and name-changer) on the blog. She may have picked the name because someone else recently said she had cat food for brains. She has already changed her name to yumyum, but it's pretty easy to recognize her comments.

Oh, look. A comment thread about a comment thread.

How awesome.

If you're up near the Tulalip casino anyway, it's worth checking out the new Cabela's, if only for the spectacle. They kind went all-out on their live-and-once-living animal displays. And the people-watching is entertaining, too.

disintegrator, today YOU are the commenting champion. Let's just close the thread now, because @8 has walked away with it.

the embedded link about the Eat More Kale vs chickfilla battle was far more interesting

Wallingford... That's north of here, isn't it?

Thanks Wilbur@work, the Eat More Kale link was my post. I think it is too bad the name is so similar to the hunting/"sporting" good store. Won't stop us from trying it though, unless there are no vegetarian food options.

Not as good as the one about the new Walgreens.

Multiple blogs, tons of comments, and not a single bit of real information about the current situation or how trademark infringement even works in the first place. Great job everyone.
