[Paging Barbra Streisand!] Olive Garden threatens to sue satirical
twitterer for tweet congratulating it for no longer selling AR-15s


        Counsel for Darden Restaurants, owners of the Olive Garden, sent
        a legal threat to the Seinfeld Current Day Twitter account over
        a tweet reading "respect to @olivegarden for no longer selling
        AR-15s at all their locations."  The letter calls this "unlawful
        defamation" and "demands" that the tweet be deleted. This has
        sparked a hilarious twitter game in which people try to goad the
        Olive Garden into sending them C&D letters as well, using the
        #OliveGardenRetractions hashtag.
