Check Out That Set of Euphemisms


The INTA lists serv was nostalgic or something this week and I wasn’t blogging in 2000, so I may as well as bring up the BODACIOUS-TATAS.COM decision  in which the UDRP arbitrator, and perhaps, the complainant, the Indian firm TATA, were seemingly unaware of the connotation of the term BODACIOUS TATAS.

Narcissistic Complainant press release suggesting that the Bodacious Tatas site had intended to free ride on the image of the famous TATAS mark here.

List of breast euphemisms here.

The term ‘bodacious’ was, we are told, coined in the comic strip “Barney Google and Snuffy Smith” (Snuffys wife Loweezy pictured here), which strip is available for syndication from the good folk at King Features.
