Patent office cancels trademarks for Washington football team
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the trademarks belonging to the Washington NFL team due to their “disparaging” nature.

Call yourselves the Unicorn Turds for all I care, just get your asses off your shoulders and win some damn ball games…
