    ALL RISE: Da Bear has entered Da HNZ room. ...HNZ stole stuff...

    Back in 2010, Heinz seemed to solve an age-old problem routinely faced by fans enjoying its ketchup on the move. With the new “Dip & Squeeze” packet, consumers could both easily spread the condiment on burgers and sandwiches, as well as use it as a dip for french fries.
    But according to a recent lawsuit, the "Dip & Squeeze" idea may have been stolen. Scott White, an inventor who works as a risk analyst at the Chicago Housing Authority by day, is suing Heinz, alleging the condiment company stole his CondiCup design after he pitched it to them in 2006. (Hat tip: the Wall Street Journal.)
    White argues that his container, while designed to fit into a car's cup holder, was the first to allow consumers to either peel off a small portion of the lid to squeeze a condiment out, or to remove the lid entirely for easy dipping.
    White was granted a patent for the design last month.

    C Yaz - Da Bear Cares [CGDGE] (Heinz bad, very bad. Da entire management group should get at least 50 years for this heinzous crime. )
