Tyler Perry just trademarked "WWJD?"

This is the man who holds the trademark to "WWJD?"

From the pages of The Hollywood ReporterTyler Perry has moved one step closer to owning the trademark on the phrase "What Would Jesus Do?" 

For whatever it's worth, he can only use it for entertainment purposes - a movie, live show or TV show - not wrist bands or tattoos or the like.

And, no, your T-shirt won't have to say "Tyler Perry presents," because there's a separate "WWJD?" trademark for clothing.
