Sit back down, Sir Osis of Liver!

More Bugs Bunny slapstick from the land of Warner Brothers: In the litigation over whether the Anaheim Angels' name change to the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim" violates the terms of the lease with Anaheim, the City of Los Angeles has now weighed in with an amicus filing -- admittedly unorthodox in a contract dispute -- arguing that the City of Angels doesn't want these particular Angels, either:

"The Angels were here, went to Anaheim and abandoned the name," [Deputy City Atty. Edward] Jordan said. "There's no connection between the Angels and the city of Los Angeles any more."
Well, some of us think L.A. is hell, so maybe we should rename the team . . . . Oh, never mind.
