    Local record shop who’s owners name is Warren, had these shirts printed up as the locals call his place “Warren’s Record Buffet” (think place to eat). Anyway, since he’s in Omaha he figured he’d use Warren Buffets name and likeness till he finds out, then make use of the free publicity if he gets a cease and desist order. I bought a couple shirts to give out at Christmas. A few days later he posted that the Buffet family stopped in and instead of threatening to sue, bought 4 shirts, laughed and left. The little guy wins once in awhile! Or at least doesn’t get squashed.... 984761AC-764C-4675-89B5-F93AFB4C0529.jpeg

    Hopefully they weren't just collecting evidence.

    The wording is okay.

    The inverted cross and fangs might bug Mr. Buffet.

    It would me a bit, were I famous, but OTOH I believe I'd file it under "any publicity is good publicity" for folks like him. Any suits would just increase public awareness of the tee-shirt anyway, and maybe make Buffet look like a jerk. Plus, there must be some give-and-take in a society which grants freedom of speech; hard to see how this record shop's tee-shirt causes any real harm for Mr. Buffet.

    It will be interesting to see if any other Buffetts get involved in this.

    Yeah, I think it's in reference to King Diamond...... that said, I think you have to take it as tongue in cheek and get some humor out of it. I think that's what the intent is anyway.

    These and the tee-shirts got us a cease and desist letter from Volvo's legal department.
    Some of the executive types just can't take a joke!!

    Warren Buffet is not a Christian and is known to support local business, so he probably has a sense of humor about it if he himself is aware of it at all.
