Heimo Sued by Wicked Pictures Star
German Animatronic company Heimo recently received a lawsuit from Wicked Pictures. The adult film company’s star Woody Ruffwood said the amusement park company has stolen his image and name for their new "Woody Ruffwood, the Talking Tree" concept.
"It would have been fine if I could get some royalties or something, but this is ridiculous," moaned Ruffwood. "I plug women for hours on end and this is the respect I get. What is this world coming to?"
Paulaner Franziskaner, Heimo’s PR Director, said he didn’t know what the confusion was about. He commented, "Ve don’t know why Herr Ruffwood has such a hard-on for our tree. It is just a piece of wood that makes people happy."
The object in question is Heimo’s new Woody Ruffwood attraction, a freestanding animatronic object that includes woodpeckers, beavers and owls with hooters that many swear are direct from nature.

The professional plunger says the similarities are obvious. "Look at his nose; it hooks to the left, just like me. In addition, he can go for hours without stopping. I don’t know if he had that nasty case of crabs a few years ago, but it wouldn’t surprise me."
Despite the problems, Heimo has refused to take the tree off the market. Franziskaner commented that the company will "stand hard and firm" against the "laughable allegations."
