Simon Cowell thinks up brilliant and witty riposte to the original One Direction

You'll recall the original band One Direction, who - somewhat surprised to discover Simon Cowell's band of gym receptionists trading under the same name - launched a lawsuit.

Cowell has now come up with a comeback - He's suing back.

Yes, that's right. Apparently, what to you or I might look like a genuine discomfort at having your band name pinched, to Cowell is something other. The Americans have:

"devised and perpetrated a scheme to exploit the goodwill"
Yes, they built a time machine, flashed back to earlier in the century, started a band with the name One Direction and then came back to 2012 just to exploit Cowell's creativity. It sounds plausible to me.

Reminds me of the bit in the Simpsons when Bart makes a reverse-charge call to Australia, and an angry Australian man phones him up to demand payment.
Angry Australian man: "You owe me five hundred dollars!"
Bart: "No! YOU owe ME five hundred dollars!"

PS "Simon Cowell's band of gym receptionists" - Awesome :)
PPS Cowell's an arse.
