A brief rant
Imagine my surprise when I logged on to Washington Mutual's digital banking site and saw one of my favorite celebration phrases. Usually when I look into my checking account this time of month, I'm trying to see whether the mastercard payment is going to overdraft the account, so Woohoo! is never at the forefront of my mind. So, I took it as a modest but ignorable affront until, UNTIL I saw that the WAMU folks felt a need to TRADEMARK "Whoohoo!"
Now I'm really going to go broke. I can't possibly pay them everytime I use "their" phrase. As an act of civil disobedience, I'm tempted to print a T-shirt today with "their" phrase on it...
Whoohoo! Whoohoo! Whoohoo!
