I AM glad I bought a sixpack of "ole Leghumper" pale ale when I was in Ohio visiting a gal friend. It has a Barkley Dog on the label.

The distinction is that while you can call your product an indecent name, you can't trademark an indecent name. So now anybody in the country is free to produce his own "Ole Leghumper" ale, but, hey, that's free enterprize for ya!
