A new addition to the extensive variety of Australian bar snacks:
A nutty snack company in Australia has won the right to call itself Nuckin Futs, despite an official ruling that it was offensive.
The Trade Marks Examiner had ruled a year ago that Nuckin Futs had to be rejected because it was scandalous and offensive.
The company appealed the ruling:
A solicitor representing the Gold Coast company argued that the name was not offensive because the words it suggested were commonplace in everyday Australian language.
Whereupon the Examiner, I imagine, went out and got totally fit-shaced.
