Fark trying to trademark NSFW (oops just cost myself some money)

Apparently FARK is trying to trademark NSFW and it’s not a hoax. Drew Curtis finally responds to the backlash on his blog (btw, gotta love those crazy Germans and their poor English skills, makes for good reading when they get really upset!):

“About the NSFW Trademark Application, I can say three things:

1) Yes, we applied for it.

2) Can’t comment on the prank angle other than “stay tuned.”

3) Muhahaha.

I’ve gotten a few email complaints about the NSFW trademark ap. It bears mentioning that I received 10x as many complaints about the DealNews ad with the picture of some guy’s ass in it (removed already, whoever over at DealNews thought that was a good idea needs to be punched in the face), and 100x as many complaints when we moved all the boobies links over to Foobies.com (NSFW™). There’s an interesting yet unsurprising cross section of the priorities of an Internet audience for you.

I’m guessing the complaints are from people who don’t read Fark, otherwise they’d know our end goal couldn’t possibly be suing everyone using NSFW out of existence.

So far, this one is my favorite:

How about you stop being dick heads and leave acronyms you didn’t create alone. don’t fuck up the internet by being cock licking monkey fuckers. If you go around trademarking things like NSFW then you WILL screw the internet up for everyone else you greedy ass sucking granny douching shit eaters.

You make me so angry!”
