Disney’s trying to profit off bin Laden’s death

America . . . FUCK YEAH!

It’s inspiring tales of altruism like this that have really endeared large corporations into the hearts and minds of all Americans. Ohhhhhh sayyyyy can you seeeeeeee, by the dawn’s early light . . . From the Associated Press:

The Walt Disney Co. has applied for a trademark on the name “Seal Team 6,” the name of the unit of specially trained Navy SEALs that killed Osama bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan earlier this month.

Three applications filed May 3 – the day after the raid – with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office by Disney Enterprises Inc. state an intention to use the mark for a range of products, including entertainment and education services, clothing, toys, games and Christmas stockings.

Wait a second, something’s not right here. The company that made films like Snow White, Bambi, and Cinderella is planning on making a movie about a highly-trained team of killers? What kind of bizarro world are we living in? If I wanted to see a film that had a lot of explosions and bodies laying around everywhere, I wouldn’t watch something made by Disney. I’d watch something made by VIVID.
