Charlie Sheen may get trademarked

Bob Moon Apr 5, 2011

And a final note. Call Charlie Sheen what you want, but one thing’s for sure: He’s enterprising. There’s word a company with ties to the actor has filed trademark applications for 22 of his now-famous sayings.

Picture a slot machine with the catchphrase “Duh, Winning.” Or a drink mix with “Tiger Blood.” And someday, there could even be a bra to make any woman one of “Sheen’s Goddesses.” You can’t make this stuff up.
