So one of my clients is a trading firm and, like many financial environments, has TV sets on the floor tuned to the financial networks. CNBC is a popular one...
If you watch CNBC, you will notice that there is a bevy of young attractive female reporters, lead by one Maria Bartiromo. Funny how their male counterparts tend to be older balding men.
Maria was a trail blazer in the field, and for this she has earned many nicknames. Some call her "Econo Babe", but the most popular one is "Money Honey(tm)".
So why am I writing about this? Because I just found out that the term "Money Honey(tm)" has been trademarked. by none other than Maria Bartiromo! Didn't bother to check if she also trademarked "EconoBabe"...
