Chippendales Lose Court Case

By Wyatt Earp | October 3, 2010

Everyone loves the Chippendales dancers. Well, most ladies do, I guess. They’re in great shape and jiggle their goodies for rabid, sex-starved women. Women who obviously don’t appreciate the wit and talent of certain Philadelphia bloggers.

Any hoo, the Chippendales tried to trademark their, um, trademark bow tie and shirt cuffs. They wanted the trademark so badly that :

The male erotic dancer company Chippendales stumbled on Friday when an appeals court ruled that it could not trademark the bow tie and shirt cuffs that the men wear.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said in a ruling — which included a sketch of a fit gentleman shown from the waist up wearing only a bow tie and shirt cuffs — that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office was correct in refusing to trademark the “Cuffs and Collar” costume.

Damn. I was gonna trademark my usual blogging attire – tank top, no pants – but I guess I won’t bother now.

    Wyatt: I consider posts of this kind to be shameless pandering to the Crankipants Coalition!
    Now publish something with Christina Hendricks in it, or we’ll show you what cranky really looks like!

    Chippendale Dancers are gay men with steroid shriveled testicles who sleep with Colgate whitening strips on their teeth. I think I’ll pass.

    And they shave their bodies and grease up before a show.

    It’s a shame that I know that…

    Tank top and no pants…. As long as you have undies on.

    “Chippendales jiggle their goodies for rabid, sex-starved women.”

    And I suppose your pole dancers shake their stuff for distinguished, upstanding gentlemen?

    Tough getting the Oreos out of the nether regions there Wyatt? We have a wide range of products that may be able to help with the clean up and keep you from pestering Mrs Earp at the same time…

    Richard – I learn from my mistakes. The new computer chair is cloth.

    Proof – Mrs. Crankipants has a coalition? Trust me, she has seen me in person. Clothed. And she almost retched. She certainly doesn’t want to see me without pants.

    Mrs. Crankipants – I sleep with my stuffed bear.

    GroovyVic – No worries there. I’m like a Sasquatch under my clothes!

    Kim – Depends on the temperature in the house.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Well duh! Why do you think they’re called “Gentlemen’s Clubs?”

    Dyson – I love your products!

    I love to dance, but watching other people dance to get all hot and bothered…not so much, besides it’s hard to tell what kind of critters are crawling all over that junk. Also, I’ve always hated really muscular guys, I like the normal ones who aren’t obsessed with working out and have a healthy view on their body.
