It’s probably fair to say that most people–irrespective of profession– look for humor in their daily routines.  As a trademark attorney, I spend a good bit of time poring over USPTO records, which (as readers of this blog probably already know) can contain quite a bit of humor (whether intentional or unintentional).

The marks themselves are generally the most obvious source of humor, but I sometime get a kick out of design codes (e.g., The iconic MR. PEANUT logo gets the following designation: “Monsters (not robots); Other grotesque including men formed by plants or objects”).

Self-proclaimed BRAND GEEK® Lara Pearson shares some trademark-related humor at her blog by the same name.
