THE WORD “BREASTAURANT” IS NOW TRADEMARKED---it's about time
Doug Guller, owner of Bikinis Sports Bar and Grill, has trademarked the term “breastaurant” through the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The name is used to describe restaurants that feature waitresses walking around in skimpy, bikini-like outfits, such as Hooters and Twin Peaks.
And now, no company other than Bikinis can market or even publicly describe itself using this term.
“We’re really excited about receiving this federal trademark,” Guller said. “Our team has worked hard over the last seven years to offer a unique experience to our fans. It just further solidifies that Bikinis Sports Bar and Grill is America’s ONLY breastaurant.” (IBTimes.com)
PINTEREST FOR GUYS
Pinterest is a hugely successful content-sharing social network.
Unfortunately for guys, it’s dominated by women, who end up sharing pictures of clothing, fingernail art, and fruit kabobs.
A new website called Manteresting is looking to give guys a place where they can share their favorite stuff by “nailing” pictures to “workbenches.”
The stuff being shared leans toward muscle cars, tools, and bacon pancakes.
It’s a Pinterest for dudes. (BusinessWeek)
SURVEY: Sex With Robots
A new survey shows that Americans are a bit uncertain about the future of robots replacing human sex partners.
In the poll, 58 percent of Americans said that robots will be cleaning our homes by 2030 – but only 18 percent thought sexbots will be available by 2030.
Nine percent said that they would have sex with a robot if they could.
And, 42 percent thought that sex with a robot would be cheating. (HuffingtonPost.com)
SEX TOYS CAN BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
An accountant in Texas was able to write off $200 in adult toys for his client – who happened to be a webcam stripper.
The accountant, Vincent Porter, explained, "If a roofer can deduct the cost of his tools used in his line of work, then an actress may deduct her tools used to generate revenue as well.” (CNN)
