Cousin Vinny's Hot Grinders

Business has not ended well for ex-franchisee Anthony "Cousin Vinny" Agnello, who offered "Subway-style" grinders by day and exotic lap grinders by night. He has been sued successfully in court by the Subway chain.

A federal judge ordered him to stop using the trademarked goods in his skin scheme and forced him to pay more than $12,000 for the chain's legal fees.

It seems that Vinny's career in his new strip joint was even shorter than being a Subway sandwich franchise owner. Vinny states, "The money in stripping isn't as profitable as it used to be."

Neighbors were outraged, and Doctor's Associates Inc., the owners of Subway, took him [Vinny] to court. He has since posted a public apology on the wall of the store, asking the locals for forgiveness for his filthy plan.
