Charles Carreon

When this attorney accused The Oatmeal's Matt Inman of libeling alleged humor site Funny Junk after Funny Junk helped itself to thousands of Inman's cartoons, he had no idea he was about to take on the entire Internet. But not only did Carreon refuse to back down, he accused Inman of siccing Web vigilantes on him, filed suit against more mockers, and tried to block Inman's efforts to donate $210,000 to charity.

Inman eventually won, the charities got the money, and Carreon backed off, but only after he'd posted a video about Inman called Psycho Santa on his Rapeutation.com website. Hey, Chuck: Just because you're named Carreon doesn't mean you have to act like a vulture.
