We know that the patent and trademark office is messed up.
What made me really think it was messed up was when I was in a restaurant today and I saw a poster on the wall for an advertisement that they had for a product featuring an ice cream cone. On the ice cream cone there was the phrase "Eat-It-All".
OK, so I looked at it and shrugged my shoulders until I read at the bottom of the poster that the phrase "Eat-It-All" was a registered trademark of Kelloggs company. Seriously? That's trademarked!? It's just three words! What crackpot granted that trademark!? Damn, the patent and trademark office is seriously messed up!
