Dana brings the case against his friend Brendan. Several years ago, Brendan started a Hulk parody twitter account, and he used Dana's real name in the Twitter handle. Brendan says the account is funny; Dana says it's bordering on impersonation. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Vernon Maher, who named this week's episode! And thanks to our expert witness Jon Ronson, author of the upcoming book So You've Been Publicly Shamed!

JG: "I actually thought that was you for a good year and then I found out that it wasn't you."

DD: "You thought that was me?

JG: "I did."

DD: "Okay. For a year?"

JG: "Someone told me that it wasn't you and I was like, 'Really...', because it really didn't seem like things that you were saying."

B2) Testimony from Victoria

"I assumed Dana Durell Hulk was Dana Durell because he is a a self aware young man aware of comic books and his own silliness and could be making some meta commentary."
