Brian Burke isn't the Toronto Maple Leafs' general manager anymore, so he's got plenty of time on his hands. Recently, he discovered the internet, and the hateful nature of its commenters.

Burke couldn't let go of some particularly personal vitriol, and has decided to sue people from the internet for defamation of his character; people like "Sir_Psycho_Sexy" and "Poonerman."

Naturally, the lawsuit inspired Harrison Mooney of Puck Daddy to sing.
