Jack Thompson... What Is This Guy's Major Malfunction?

Some may not know who this otherwise forgetable ambulance chaser is. J.T. is a two-bit hustler lawyer who has latched onto grieving families like a hooker who uses Dura Bond instead of KY. He gives them a shuck and jive and apparently goes through their home theater cabinets looking for the "smoking gun." Whether its one of the Grand Theft Auto series or Barbie Dream Horse Jack Thompson is there to raise the rabble of the wacko assault brigades to his cause. They quickly leave their "Ban Tinkie Winkie" marches and their "Resist Sponge Bob" prayer revivals and follow this yutz off the edge of the of his legal flat earth.

Doubtful Reason reported on Jack "Mack Daffy" Thompson contacting the Seattle police about the Entertainment News site Penny Arcade on Thursday (Link). Well folks we have entered into the 6th Dimension the Jack Thompson Zone.

For the latest development in Jack's ongoing battle with sanity you should check out He is apparently trying to sick the “Feds” on us now. I’m not sure how he imagines we are extorting him. We are not demanding he pay the $10,000 to charity. In fact we paid it for him. Case closed end of story. In my mind we were finished with him.
Apparently many of you took it upon yourselves to send some extremely well thought out complaints to the Florida Bar I have a feeling that might explain Jack's most recent attack on us. I want to stress that I don’t think anymore mails need to be sent to the FBA. I feel like by now they understand what the situation is. He can send these silly letters from hell to breakfast but all they amount to his a bunch of legal dry humping. He’s not actually going to accomplish anything with these faxes and they really don’t have the intended effect on us. That is to say we are not scared. This will become another funny story for us to tell at conventions just like American Greetings, eFront or Kiwi Publishing. Again I’ll tell you guys not to worry about us. We have absolutely top notch legal representation. Should Jack actually decide to come after us we’re quite prepared. Until then he’s more than welcome to send ridiculous faxes to any uninterested third party he wants.

Jack has officially eneterd into the realm of the child playing divde and conqueror with his parents. "WAAAAA! Seattle police, help me against these nasty people who tried to make me keep my word! Oh yeah well.... I'm going to ask DAD!" What's next Jack are you going to hold your breath until you turn blue or run away from home. If there is a vote I cast my ballot for number two!.

To keep this firmly in Jack Thompson's realm, that of the ridiculous, it seems that a letter has surfaced that could be decisive:

I'm sorry to make a news post before today's strip is posted, but the news team has just received an anonymous tip that the saga between Jack Thompson and Penny-Arcade has just taken a frightening twist.

As reported at, Jack Thompson has faxed letters both to local Seattle authorities and the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, in relation to Penny Arcade.

An anonymous tipster has just forwarded a leaked document showing that Thompson may have possibly contacted a third institution in relation to Penny Arcade. can neither confirm nor deny the credibility of this information.

A mirror of the letter is here.
