INDUSTRIES FIGHTING SLANG

It’s pretty well known that the company that makes SPAM has tried incredibly hard to try and prevent the use of the word Spam when referring to junk mail. But who else has tried to fight off the power of slang? Who hasn’t, but should?

Cottage Cheese: If there’s one thing that stops me from eating cottage cheese (besides it tasting gross) is the words ‘cottage cheese thighs.’ I haven’t heard the cottage cheese industry crying over it, but I bet that slang alone costs them millions each year.

Lesbians: Yep, these people have actually sued organizations for use of the word lesbians. Who am I talking about? Why, people from the island of Lesbos near Greece of course. What did you think?

Okay, that’s all I could come up with. Anyone have any more?
