Can I trademark a vowel?  I would go for the letter E and sue the pants of them for patent infringement

"The University of South Carolina" did this decades ago.

For some reason, they decided not to trademark "The Gamechickens."

So shouldn't they be trademarking TOSU for the bumper stickers?  Or would that be tOSU?

My alma mater continues to sink to new lows in stupidity.  I personally refuse to put 'the' in front of the school name.
