He-he. Good one!
But, just to clear things: jpeg is not neccesarily a lossy format -
although we usually make it lossy to save space.
So, be sure that you know what you are doing when you are being sued!
For example:
 - He came here after swallowing a piece of puzzle.
 - My dog suddenly ran in and that's his tail.
 - I explicitly asked the patient to smile but he refused to.
The possibilities are infinite.

(But the jpeg ITSELF is still not lossy, but it can be made to be.)
