"That Milkaholic Lindsay" E-Trade Baby Prompts $100 Million Suit From Lohan

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is feuding with the E-Trade babies.

The actress has filed a $100 million lawsuit claiming a television ad for the Wall Street firm that aired during the Super Bowl and Olympics was modeled after her.

Talking babies in the ad engage in chatter that refers to "milkaholic Lindsay." The 23-year-old actress has famously sought substance abuse treatment.

Lohan's name was never mentioned. But her New York lawyer contends that "Lindsay" is an equally recognizable moniker for her client - like that of Oprah or Madonna.

Lohan's legal team is seeking an injunction to stop future airings.

An E-Trade spokeswoman is declining to comment.

    No Jethro, apparently, moveon.or and soros are working the posts, not witn or enquirer. Are you a koolaidoholic like Nathan? I have a really cool recipe for Koolaid pie...full of Pelosi, Reid and covered with Obama topping...when you eat a slice, nothing happens, you owe a lot of money, everyone thinks you are a dork and you continue to smoke and drink in the whitehouse...let me know if you want it...Oh, sorry, Pelosi is going to shove that bill down you throat too....gosh, she sure is inventive...

    CRAZY!!! She's gonna "milK" it for all it's worth huh? She must really think that she's all that and that E*Trade would model a commercial after her. Get over yourself Lindsey! You're not special enough. Now, if the baby had been drinking whiskey and popping pills, then I guess you'd have a legitimate complaint! DON'T TAKE E*TRADE BABIES OFF THE AIR! THEY ARE HILARIOUS!!!

    I'm sorry... did someone refer to her as a "starlet" in here? lol No no no... She was never in that category. Being a celebrity these days is far different than the stars and starlets of the past. Looking at that picture... eek!
