consultants are sandburs

But Mr. Richardson does not think the company’s argument would hold up in trademark court. “We believe it’s pretty clear, the issue of dilution and confusion aren’t really triggered here,” he said. “There’s no one out there that’s going to come forward and say, ‘I thought I was buying a Chick-fil-A product but I got this T-shirt.’ ”

The headline is a late paragraph, from N.Y. Times reporting, re the "Eat More Kale" boutique t-shirt maker. You would think the chicken man would stay busy opening more outlets and hating gay people. Kale is good for you. Factory raised chicken, less so.

You would be hard pressed to find any dedicated people, t-shirts and all, advocating a "NATIONAL FACTORY RAISED CHICKEN DAY."

And, is there a next in the chicken man's trademark crosshairs?

More: here and here.

___________UPDATE__________
Google's profiling users and making money selling targeted advertising based on their maintaind database of profiles is a well known privacy concern. However, their search capability, their algorithm mix, is great. In posting I was unsure if I had the linking correct and pasted the entire headline into the google search box, and got this.

Take the bitter with the sweet. Per Googling, here, here, here, and even in the thread here (do a page search, "kale"), for more kale-is-apart-from-chicken-meat web content.

Two images. Are you confused?

Last, chicken man gotta shut down WebMD, they perniciously sub-headline, "Eat More Kale."
