www.news.com.au said:

A SNACK called Nuckin Futs will go on sale after a lawyer's successful argument that the word "f..." is a normal part of Australian speech and so cannot be deemed offensive under trademark rules.
The trademark application for "Nuckin Futs" was at first rejected by the register as being scandalous and offensive due to its similarity to the phrase "f...ing nuts".
The Trade Marks Examiner ruled that "Nuckin Futs" was an "obvious spoonerism" and deemed it ineligible for registration under section 42 of the Trade Marks Act.

I would not say commonplace. I hate this bloke, he makes Australia look like the land of bogans. I wont be buying this crap. Shock tactics are so passe. I find them childish. Not an instance where I can say "I am proud to be an Aussie". As bad as that tosser with the Wicked Camper vans a little while back.

In Texas, there was a chap who decided to open a night club for the younger set.  He managed to get a good deal on a former furniture store by the name of "Sofa King".  Seeing the name, he decided to keep it, and simply add the word "Awesome!" under it, as the name of his club.

:w00t:

I just could not chomp on Choppers Nuts. That is just sooo wrong LOL. That, like the fellow Aquatus1 referred to though is being clever, a play on words, this guy is just making us all look like bogans.

Is swearing more commonplace in Australia than anywhere else? That seems a tall order.

Love the parliament suggestion, not that's using the noodle! :D Ever heard of KFC's Gillard Snack pack? Two extra small breasts, two extra large thighs in a red box. :lol:

I knew a guy that opened up a fish and chips shop in North QLD called Mullet Up! and a Coffe lounge, in Townsvillle I think, I know it was called "How The Foccacia". Hard to forget.

Holy crap, are we really bogans?

Anyone remember those kid's lollies " F A G S " ? Made to resemble cigarettes, may have just been an Aussie thing. Those things had no chance of surviving into the present, on two separate grounds. But Nuckin Futs will probably get through.

Showing my age no doubt, but yes, I remember them, they were rebadged as FADS I am pretty sure.

Many adults gave these to me as a kid! How strange that we promote smoking in this way!

Does not look like the aussie cover I have seen, but this is how it ended up.

KFC would be mortified lest they lose the trade of the rusted-on Laborites. Something similar was circulating in the 70's with the Gough Whitlam deal containing left chicken wings only. But, true to form, the modern version of the joke is heavily vulgarized for the times.

All this reminds me of that 'little' tribe in Arica called the ''Wherethe****areweee'' tribe. They are a pigmy tribe standing at most,  3ft tall.   Apparently, where they live, the grass grows to 4ft and in the summer they can be seen jumpiing up and down shouting ''Wherethe****areweee  wherethe****areweee''   :w00t:

It would seem that we are vulgar according to the Nucking Futs lawyer, but are we bogans?
