Hall & Oates Are Suing The Makers of Haulin' Oats Granola

Popular 1980s music duo Hall & Oates have had a sense of humour failure, or so it seems.

According to The Guardian, the pair have lodged a complaint against Early Bird, the Brooklyn-based manufacturers of Haulin’ Oats granola. 

The lawsuit is based on the musicians' claim that, "the name and mark Haulin’ Oats is an obvious play upon Plaintiff’s well-known Hall & Oates mark, and was selected by defendant in an effort to trade off of the fame and notoriety associated with the artist’s and plaintiff’s well-known marks."

Early Bird have also had the temerity to make their breakfast range out of edible products, in an obvious effort to trade off the fame and notoriety associated with other well-known edible products. With such overwhelming evidence as this, it's likely Daryl Hall and John Oates will end up having them for breakfast. Legally-speaking, rather than literally.

In recognition of the band’s intolerance, let’s all listen to their 1983 hit, I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do).
