If only The Situation had made a trip to the library...

CBS News reported yesterday that "The Situation," of Jersey Shore fame, had about as much luck with his trademark application as co-star "Snooki" did with hers. Both marks were rejected because they were found to be already in use.

I think the lesson here is that both "The Situtation" and "Snooki" would probably have benefited from visiting a PTDL to learn how to do a proper trademark search. In their case, the nearest PTDL by mileage from Seaside Heights is at Rutgers, though, for my money, the Philly Free Library might be an easier drive in end-of-summer traffic.
