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.
