bush should advertise for diapers

this news just sent me rolling on the floor.

from the article:
A Beijing businessman wants to trademark the Chinese name of US President George W. Bush to market his disposable diapers.

The applicant, surnamed Guo, filed an application with the General Administration for Industry and Commerce of China, stating he wants to use the two-character phrase “Bushi” as a trademark, the Beijing News reported.

“I hit upon the idea by chance,” said Guo, who became a Beijing resident three years ago.

“Back in my hometown in Henan Province, the pronunciation of ‘Bushi’ sounds exactly like ‘not wet’.”
