Trump wants to trademark "you're fired".

Wigged out news of the week - Donald Trump wants to trademark the phrase "You're Fired".
No seriously. If you don't believe me check out the The Smoking Gun who has posted the papers filed at The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

That's right, if The Donald gets the nod from The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, he'll be able to exclusively slap the words "You're Fired" on clothing and "games and playthings," and use it in connection with "casino services." Along with peddling overpriced apartments, Trump runs some spectacularly underperforming Atlantic City gambling joints. Trump's two trademark applications, which you'll find below, were made after the January 8 debut of "The Apprentice," the NBC hit that has thrust Trump (and the alleged billionaire's swirling hairdo) back onto the front pages.

update: Robblink just posted the Trump Verizon ad where you can hear his: "You are fired you minutehoarding clockwatcher." and be hypnotized by his teeth
