jack in the Box is being sued to pull this commercial. Do you think they went to far or was the commercial just trying to be stupid and funny? Should they be sued for this ad?

Burger wars: Jack in the Box sued over ad (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18894390/) - The parent company of the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast food chains sued rival Jack In The Box Inc. on Friday to stop TV ads that it says suggest Carl's Jr. and Hardee's use cow anus to make Angus beef hamburgers.

CKE Restaurants Inc. sued Jack In The Box in U.S. District Court on Friday over an ad in which executives laugh hysterically at the word "Angus" and another where the chain's pingpong ball-headed mascot, Jack, is asked to point to a diagram of a cow and show where Angus meat comes from.

"I'd rather not," the pointy-nosed Jack replies.

Here is the commercial.
