Facebook trademarks the word ‘book’
Using its billionaire dollar empire, Facebook intends to purchase creative ownership of large portions of the English language and a significant portion of the air you breathe. A Facebook executive explained: ‘It's not like this word has ever been used in conjunction with anything else ever before. Everyone knows that we invented the book and any evidence prior to the Internet is just hearsay or from some weird paper-thingy fastened together with a hinge at one side’.
‘No one had a Face until we branded it. And we’re in discussions with the human race to see if they can attach something else to the front of their skull that does not infringe on our copyright. How about a big sign with a phrase not in usage – like ‘Chattymouth’, ‘NoseyEarLips’ or…’My Space’?’
