Charlie Sheen TM'ing catchphrases for game use

"Duh, Winning," "Vatican Assassin," "Tiger Blood," and "Rock Star From Mars" amongst terms being locked down with the US Trademark and Patent Office.

The past several months have seen actor Charlie Sheen become the focus of a maelstrom of media coverage. Following a health scare, the film and TV star engaged in a series of media interviews during which he espoused a series of bizarre catchphrases that soon found themselves in the popular lexicon. (The totality of those comments led to him being fired from the popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, which airs on GameSpot parent company CBS.)

Now, the Associated Press reports that Sheen has hired an outside company to trademark many of those phrases for use in a variety of fields--including games. According to the news service, Hyro-gliff, a company associated with the actor, filed a flurry of trademark applications between March 19 and 22 for 22 terms. These include "Adonis DNA," "Duh, Winning," "Vatican Assassin," "Tiger Blood," and "Rock Star from Mars."

Vatican Assassin: The Game?

The trademarks were filed for a variety of fields, including drinks, candy, women's underwear, gambling machines, and, yes, video games. Exactly what form a Charlie Sheen-based game would take--or whether one will ever be made--has yet to be determined. The actor is currently on a speaking tour of the US and Canada, and he will appear in Cleveland, Ohio this evening.

Pope Benedict, Tony the Tiger and Marvin the Martian are already filing appeals. Enzo Auditore will be filing a amicus curiae in support.

I like how this jackass makes millions of dollars everyday by trying to sue the people that made him famous in the first place.

An indie game called "Tiger Blood" must now be made. These trademarks aren't going to stop me from saying them - WINNING.

Looks like he's really grasping at straws now on how to make money and capitalize on the public's morbid obsession with watching celebrities implode. Charlie Sheen needs help, not an audience.

I don't understand people's continued fascination with this jackhole. It's one manufactured publicity stunt after another, and some people still insist on handing him there money.

@jkowal7: "People whining about the fact he's copyrighting words, yet he's coined most/all of them" So, he invented the words? And here I thought tigers had blood in them.

At one time he was actually a pretty darn funny performer and a great guest on Alex Jones, but it seems those days have long since past.

Charlie Sheen is having his moment in the spot light, but it's soon going to crash and he's just trying to clamor to it. I thought it was funny at first, now it's just kinda sad.
