(AP) The Trix Rabbit has filed litigation against his employer General Mills, claiming damages of 1.5 million dollars. His lawyer spoke to the press this afternoon, and explained that this case is based on defamation of character and loss of future income. "Our client is called `silly' numerous times in General Mills advertisments, and the other actors continually ridicule him. We feel that General Mills has permenently damaged our client's chances at landing other parts." The attorney went on to give an example, stating that "He wanted to read for the role of 'Crackle' in a Rice Krispies ad, but was turned away by a Kellog's representative who said `silly rabbit, this part is for a kid." When the agent for the Nestle Quik Rabbit was contacted, he said that his client had no intention of following the Trix Rabbit's lead. "Our relationship with Nestle is quite amicable. They pay him well, they don't make him look like a fool, and they let him eat all the chocolate he wants." The Enegizer Bunny had no comment, but his agent remarked that "As long as Everyready keeps paying, those commercials will keep going and going." At press conference later today, representatives from General Mills made an offer to settle out of court which consisted of 900 boxes of Trix cereal, but this was reportedly turned down. The Trix Rabbit himself is quoted as saying "Let them keep their @#!% cereal! They can give it to those stupid kids for all I care. I want some cold hard cash."
