Lindsay Lohan's so vain...

...she thinks any reference to the name "Lindsay" is about her.  She's suing E*Trade over the use of the name "Lindsay" in one of their talking baby ads, claiming it's an intentional besmirchment.  The ad agency says "Lindsay" is a common baby name and also happens to be the name of one of their staff.

Lohan's lawyer has ruined her own case, I think, by saying, "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."  In that case, then I guess she missed the class in law school that explained how parody is protected.
