News from the Natural World: Ticks are suing Nike for copyright infringement.
Ticks all over the world have gathered to deliver a sting blow to the retail and fashion giant. Some critics have accused them of being a blood sucking parasite who secretly sucks the blood of innocent people, and that’s just Nike! Imagine what they think of Ticks!
What are Ticks? They are tiny arachnids, a micro spider. They are around 3 to 5 mm long and part of the superorder Parasitiformes. Ticks are external parasites because they live by feeding on the blood of mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians. One of their favourite meals is humans. They latch onto skin, bury their head into flesh and start sucking blood. Their body balloons in size as they will up with the red life giving liquid and they’re notoriously difficult to dislodge.
Ticks sue Nike
The Tick community across the world had began to hear rumours and stories of a new type of Tick. This imposter was becoming incredibly popular and humans almost seemed to be worshipping it. The Nike Tick was its name. The Ticks decided to look into this rival and find out who this wannabe blood sucking parasite was. But they were in for a shock. It wasn’t even a real tick, it was an imposter! It was something called a “Retail Giant” and didn’t look anything like a normal blood sucking parasite.
Since the 1970’s Nike had been using horrific sweatshops across Asia to make their shoes. Nike had originally denied the claims and said they had no control over sub-contracted factories. But in 2002, Nike admitted its culpability as photos emerged showing children in crowed and cramped conditions making their products. Since then they have spent more money on PR and Legal campaigns to cover up the problem rather than actually dealing with it. With annual revenue of $30 billion this is the true definition of a blood sucking parasite.
Nike uses horrific sweatshops
Ultimately the Ticks were livid that Nike was tarnishing their name and stealing their reputation as the worlds foremost bloodsucking parasite. The Ticks are confident that their former glory will be restored. Ticks will sue Nike for copyright infringement.
