You know, I understand that a business should protect its product. After all, that's what pays the bills.

But sometimes it can get a little ridiculous. According to the Huffington Post, a tiny brewery in Missouri discovered the wrath of Starbucks after a couple people termed one of their beer concoctions a "Frapicino" on a popular beer review app.

Starbucks sent a cease-and-desist letter chock-full of legal jargon, veiled threats and some pretty unsubtle boasting. Scroll to read the entire letter the brewery's owner, Jeff Britton, posted to its Facebook page.

Rather than simply acquiescing, of Exit 6 Pub and Brewery owner Britton responded with an excellent letter of his own. My favorite part? "Us small businesses have to stick together."

In addition to the letter, Britton attached a check for $6, his estimated earnings from the drinks reviewed by customers. He also agreed to change the name to "The F Word," per his letter.
