Comfyballs Underwear Denied US Trademark Because Apparently Balls 'Is Too Vulgar'

December 11, 2014

Because this is the world we live in, Norwegian underwear manufacturer Comfyballs was denied a US trademark for their product (obtaining a European trademark was no problem because they're not so prudish over there) because, "The mark does not create a double entendre or other idiomatic expression... When used in this way, the word 'balls' has an offensive meaning." Seriously? What is the offensive meaning? That you're referencing nuts? How is that offensive? And, more importantly, does this mean they're going to deny my trademark for DongArmor?

Thanks to TonyPepparoni, whose name has been denied trademarks on several occasions, and not just in the US.

    How very typical.

  • but ... but .... but .... I want comfy ball's .....

  • This_Update_Sucks

    But "Ballroom Jeans", which serve literally the same purpose and make the same joke, are ok?

  • adsfadfs

    ah, but this is why they mentioned making it a pun...you could wear the jeans to a dance and it wouldn't be *only* about testicles ;P

    We can sell Truck Nuts, which are literally plastic representations of scrotal sacs meant to hang in public; but we can't have ComfyBalls underwear because the name might be offensive?????

    Reason has died in America.

  • adsfadfs

    the truck balls are banned where i live

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    They should change it to Baseballs.

    And yet they allowed a trademark for 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo', an arguably more offensive, disgusting and damaging-to-society "product". Great job protecting us guys, A+.

  • timeiskey

    that show wasnt offensive.
    the mother agreed to split the money equally amongst her children.
    thats something many moms would never have done.

    Yet I can purchase a product from amazon to be shipped to the US called "DryBalls" no problem.

    Boxers man.. there is no comfort in strangling your balls.

  • catallergy

    Only teenage boys wear boxers. Or women trying to look cute.

  • stuffsticks

    What? the last time i wore a pair of Tighty whities was back in high school. Having a respectable package means that i cannot comfortably wear any scrotal crushing sack. Therefore i am forever more a boxer or brief man

  • catallergy

    Never said anything about tighty whities. And as I mentioned below, any man wearing boxers that has a bigger than average dick knows the fabric wraps around and strangles anything that hangs low. Says more about you that you don't know that.

  • timeiskey

    jokes on you, my dick is small

  • KLanD

    LMAO!!.. Sorry, but any real man who's got at least half a package would rather go commando than wear tighty-whities.

    Unless you're gay or a douchbag.

  • catallergy

    Who said anything about tighty whities? Boxer briefs. And any man who claims to wear boxers doesn't have much of a package. The loose fabric of boxers wraps around anything that hangs low.

  • KLanD

    Man, you should stop buying cheap boxers then.

  • adsfadfs

    thats like saying women prefer to go braless..you just don't understand how heavy a proper set of testicles can get

    you've got the a cups who wear them because they dont dig into your flesh like they can on a larger set...and d-z. who *need* them so she won't throw out her back

  • KLanD

    Hey, if you like the feeling of your boys being strangled and twisted all the time, you have at it Hoss.
