I'm sorry, comic strip author Charles Schulz has a copyright on the
Charlie Brown expression "Good Grief!" and you must pay his estate
$1000US every time you use it, even if the reference has nothing to
do with comics, starting in 1954 and continuing until 50, or 70, or
90 years (extended repeatedly by US congress) years after his death.
The alternative is a costly court battle. Pay up, or change your name.
