Let's see the TMO reach into their pockets and come at 2,000 "ex"
initiators with their $3,000.00 suited-up Trademark lawyers costing
$700/hr. Yeah, right, like they could even have the "go-to lackies on
staff" to put together a war of lawsuits, let alone convince Girish to
pay for it.
And they'd be too stupid to come up with some response to the "2000
demons attack," that would make lemonade out of it as it hit the
headlines. "Hit the headlines" -- one of my better jokes. The
silence would be so DUH. No one cares.
But actually, I'm fucking miffed. I studied my ass off to pass
checking/puja tests. And then I performed for the TMO with tons of
But nooooooooooooooooo, I'm not a recert, so I'm fucking piece of
shit, and if you think I'm exaggerating, then you never had the course
office fuck with your head in the most Nazi-esque manner. If you're
not bringing in money to the movement you are a stinking fucking turd
-- you can feel it in their handshakes.
So: with all that l I did and now I can't put up a poster and, what?
-- they own my ass?
Fuck. That. Shit.
If I was still a believer, it'd be worth it to test the TMO's metal on
this and see if they'd sue me, cuz even small claims court would cost
them several large to get someone to show up in the physical to defend
the TMO properties. And they won't do that.
Because they know the territory would never produce enough initiations
to cover the legal expenses to protect the trademarks. They fucking
know that no one can sell TM very well these days, so there's not an
actual threat to them -- income-wise. And since no one cares, the
dilution of the Trademarks is insignificant, and if the TMO had a
vegetable cutter in the kitchen send out legalese sounding threat
letters, then that would be about it -- they'd have covered their
asses enough to keep their marks their legal properties.
Man-o-Man, if any of the biggies wants me to donate a thousand bucks
to the TMO, just offer me a nose to target with no repercussions.
Yep, I would spend that to konk that honker on Tubby B. Yes, I
would. I'd leave my desk right now at 10:20 P.M. and be in Fairfield
in five hours flat with cash in hand.
Think of the essays I could write after that!
