Is the time ripe for Jesus Juice?
It seems odd that anyone would want to be associated with the alleged capers of Michael Jackson and young boys, but two people in California—one of them a longtime CBS Evening News producer who covered MJ's most recent child molestation case—have attempted to trademark "Jesus Juice," the term he allegedly called the wine that he offered boys. Lest that connection be too subtle for anyone, the logo, which is still under consideration by the U.S. patent office according to thesmokinggun.com, shows a Jackson-like figure with a black fedora and one sequined glove, in a pose like that of Jesus on the cross. Uh, despite recent successes of strangely named wine like Fat Bastard and Smoking Loon, we're not so sure this one will be a big hit.
