According to TMZ, Jimmy Buffett has filed papers to trademark the term “Tiger Blood” for vodka and energy drinks:

“According to documents filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and obtained by TMZ  — Margaritaville Enterprises LLC, owned by the singer, filed two applications on March 15 to trademark “Tiger Blood” for use in vodka and energy drinks.

As TMZ previously reported — Tiger Blood is Charlie Sheen’s codename for his mangosteen-infused fruit smoothie,  Xango juice. 

Interesting … if Jimmy’s application goes through, Charlie won’t be able to capitalize on what he made famous — but then again, there’s more to life than vodka and energy drinks.”

Last month Charlie Sheen quoted from “A Pirate Looks at Forty” in an interview, saying “love me some Jimmy Buffett.”

    hmmm…not too sure about this one, Jimmy. He’s definitely a shreud business man — just look at his empire (music, restaurants, beer, alcohol, books, a hotel). But I can’t get past capitalizing on the psychotic rants of Charlie Sheen. :( I guess you go where the money is….

    How embarrassing. I don’t think he has all that much to do with the “bidness”, but you are right Tara, exploiting an obvious manic episode of an addict is beyond the pale. Guess who won’t be buying any more Buffett related products…and I’ve been a Parrothead for a very long time. Just plain sad.

    I think it’s hilarious, and only the future will tell whether Charlie is manic or shrewd and/or whether Jimmy made a good move or not. But my gut feeling is that the filing was chicken feed in terms of money spent and was a pretty good shot in the dark.

    Anyway, I actually thought that there was a product on the market called Tiger Blood so we’ll have to wait and see whether Jimmy’s application is approved or not.

    Turnabout is fair play. Sheen quotes jb, jb quotes sheen and takes the quote. Sounds like a pirate move to me! Go Jimmy!

    This isnt surprising to me…Buffett doesnt care about his Parrotheads at all; he’s more into making a buck these days. He knows he can put anything out, and put his name on it, and people will buy it. He’s a fake and I’m glad I stopped admiring him a long time ago. Hopefully one day Parrotheads break away from this guy, and see the real man he is….
