Stoners Are Not To Be Trusted


It’s not every day that a fine news publication like The Onion dips its toes into trademark pool. Given this, I was pleasantly surprised to see this parody about troubling competition to Yellowstone National Park. Granted, this article came out a couple months ago, but I still think its poignant.

Although plainly presented for comedic purposes, the article presents some entertaining observations and illustrations about how real competitors might run up against each other in the marketplace, particularly where one competitor is a slavish rip-off artist. For example, Yellowstone has Old Faithful; Yello-Stone has Old Reliable.

Please see full article below for more information.
