Washington Redskins Finally (Kind Of) Admit Their Name Is Offensive — But They Have A DISGUSTING New Excuse To Keep Their Mascot

no title

This is unbelievable!

The Washington Redskins are trying to preserve the trademark for their highly offensive nickname, and the NFL team is now going to great lengths to defend their position.

On Friday, the team — along with controversial owner Dan Snyder — filed an opening brief in an appeals court in the hopes that they could keep their nickname after a court just ruled the name was highly offensive.

But this opening brief has to be seen to be believed!

It seems the 'Skins are no longer arguing that their name is not offensive, which had been their argument up to this point.

NOW they are conceding it is offensive to some — but they're arguing that since trademarks have been granted to dozens of other highly offensive (and NSFW) names, the Redskins ought to be allowed to keep theirs, too:

Taylor Swift Heart Sign Stolen! Patented By Google!

Is Taylor Swift going to have to stop using her iconic heart hands?

Taylor has practically trademarked the lovely bit of sign language over the years, but Google decided to do her one better and patent it! For realz!

Google patented the "heart-hand gesture" for use with their new Google Glass technology, allowing people to use the sign to "like" things they see through the lenses.

Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) to see the legal evidence of the pilfered patent.

Thanks to Google, soon everyone with the fancy specs will be doing their own Swifty impressions.

Hmm… Maybe the occasionally foul-mouthed singer will be able to think of another hand gesture for them! LOLz!
