Whatever You Do, Don't Joke About Having Sex with Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra has settled a lawsuit with Turner Broadcasting, which has agreed to pay him a "substantial" sum for unauthorized use of his name in ads for "Sex in the City." In the ads, which ran in the spring of summer of 2004, one of the answers to a multiple choice question, "what is a yogasm?," was "having sex with Yogi Berra."

The lawsuit pointed out that Berra, 80, is "a married man and has children and grandchildren. He is a deeply religious man who has maintained and continues to maintain a moral lifestyle, and has a spotless reputation for integrity, decency and moral character."

He's apparently also a controlling humorless prick.
