Imagine, if you will, some nut job (me) who had too much money (not me) and
went about trade marking colors for different uses like some people squat on
domain names.  Could be a mess.  Interesting but still a mess.  I bet there
are safeguards someplace for that.  Has to be.

I want to trademark the smell of bread.  If you want to make bread that
smells like bread, you need to pay me a royalty for every loaf.  

I bet it could partially fly, or at least get me on the Howard Stern show.
(gag)
