'The Situation' Trademark Situation

2/2/2010 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Two different people are dying to put the "The Situation" on your butt -- in the form of underwear -- in what appears to be a race to score a trademark on the greatest nickname to ever emerge from the "Jersey Shore."

The Situation
Two applications were filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the hopes of sealing the deal on the phrase for use on clothing -- however, neither one of the applicants is Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino himself.

One application was filed by a porn company owned by The Situation's brother, Marc Sorrentino, on December 28. Another app was filed by a corporation called Vadio LLC, and according to TheSmokingGun, the corporation is headed by a guy named Matthew Hunter.

So who's best situated to score The Situation trademark?

Stay tuned ...

I love The Situation..actually he is the ONLY one of the few that I actually do like on Jersey Shore. He is funny as hell and I liked the way he tried to keep things clean and tidy..it was cute.

Response to post #9 by Marco!!!!
MTV created a TV show they did not create any Characters. This dude gave himself the nickname('The Situation') long before MTV ever thought creating this TV show.
When you call them characters it makes me think you believe that the people on the show are acting. I can assure you they are not actors or characters.

I wonder if "BIG ASS LOSER" is trademarked. That would be perfect for him.

He's a decent looking guy but why doesn't he get that hideous mole removed off his face?? It makes me physically sick when I see people on TV with moles all over them. Seriously people! There are Dermatologists on every freakin corner!!
