Yep, you read that right. We have to change the name, and this is why. I got an email the other day that read:
I am sure you are not aware of the fact that Five Bu©k Frid@y is a trademarked named owned by a group of Florists. If you would like we can have the trademark information forwarded to you with our request for you to stop using the trademark.
I wasn’t mad or upset, because I am in the process of having the Manic Mommy name trademarked because there are others on the internet using that name and I believe to be the first who branded that name and I want to own it, so I kindly emailed the guy and said I completely understood his need to keep the name his. I told him that I would change it, which I am. However, I am putting those symbols in there for this post just so I can explain my need to change it. I figure the guy probably has a GOOGLE search on the phrase and he may check my blog anyway to see if I use his phrase again.
So, this is where I need your help.
We can no longer call our Friday fun game Five Bu©k Frid@y. We need a new name. I’ve thought a lot about it, and have come up with some suggestions. I could change the day. We could do Three Buck Thursday, and yeah, that would save me two bucks, but come on, that’s no fun for you! We could make it Six Buck Saturday or Sunday, but then that’s a lot more coming out of my pocket. Someone suggested Hi-Five Friday, which is very catchy and I really like, but then there’s that show on TV called Hi-Five, so what if I get in trouble for that?
We could call it $4.94 Friday and I could still give you five bucks?
So, in honor of having to change Five Bu©k Frid@y to another name, I’m gonna give away TWO FIVE BUCKs this week. One for the person who best comes up with a new name, and one for the person who can answer the Five Bu©k Frid@y question of the week!
Ready? You know how to play?
You get up to three guesses in the comments section, and there may or may not be clues as the guessing begins. Last weeks’ was WAAAAAAY too easy, so I’m making this week’s question really, really, really hard.
Today’s Five Bu©k Frid@y question is:
What is the man’s name who sent the email to me, and if you happen to BE THAT MAN checking in on me to make sure I am not violating any trademarking laws, which I am NOT, please don’t ruin my fun game, OK! Thank you!
Here’s one clue:
It is seven letters or less. How nice am I?
Oh, and here's another thing. If we happen to get to 100 comments without anyone getting it correct, which I find it terribly IMPOSSIBLE because come on, it's a guy's name, then YOU ALL LOSE! And you all have to admit defeat and you all have to send my blog address out to five of your friends and tell them I rock! OK? Deal? Fair. Fair!
Start your guesses my friends! And please, write in your suggestions for what we should call THe iNTeRNeT GaMe FoRMeRLy KNoWN aS FiVe Bu©K FRiD@y!
