'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 hate how anyone can now trademark a name, whether it's yours or not, commonly used or not. I don't like Mike but since he obviously coined the term and used it on TV as his nick then he should have at least the option of trademarking it himself. It would be like some shmuck trying to trademark 'you're fired' or something.

Pauly D gets his hair to stand up by using a generous slathering of human anal leakage- After his hair dries-- he goes ahead and washes it in the indide of a toliet (why do you think he styls it just like the head of a toilet brush.

Loser douche bag. The "situation" is that this one-way m-f'er is such a liar! Love how he stepped back and watched his new bar buddy punch a girl in the face. What, and his hooker for the night in Atlantic City couldn't wait for him to walk J-Woww upstairs to her room and then come back down? The bar was in the same hotel! He's a jerk! And six-packs don't last forever so he'd better make the most of his 15 minutes.

The people who watch this show must have the brains the size of peas. The good news is that this show will soon be over and the idiots on it will disappear into oblivion. The bad news is that MTV will create a new show with a whole new bunch of idiots for the younger generation to idolize.

I do not go to Seaside Heights anymore because of these typs of idiots and yet they are making money doing that. I am soooo confused about this world. Also, they admitted on Chelsea Lately that they are NOT EVEN FROM NJ! Hellloooo I would love to make $10,000 an episode to act like an inmature a..hole!
