Tom Turkey v. Turkey Tom

I found this amusing in a “funny story at the end of your local newscast” kind of way: Jimmy John’s is suing another sandwich shop over sandwich similarities. Sassy!

Halsted Street Deli, which has all the appeal of a street, has a sandwich called the Tom Turkey. Jimmy John’s has a sandwich called the Turkey Tom™ which, as you can see by my liberal use of the trademark symbol, is actually trademarked and has been since 02. Halsted also offers a Hunt Club, countering Jimmy John’s Hunter’s Club™.

This has really put a damper on my plans to open a restaurant of copycat foods. I guess I’ll need to revise the menu to not include the Wooper, the Big Mc, Chicken McNugs, You Select Two, Twisty Fries, or Coke Zero.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
