On Wednesday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office was very busy as they denied Ohio State the rights to copyright the word “The” and turned right around hours later to deny LeBron James’ trademark application for his beloved “Taco Tuesday.”
The USPTO has refused the TACO TUESDAY trademark application filed by Lebron James’ company LBJ Trademarks, LLC.
The refusal, issued at 6:26 PM today, finds that TACO TUESDAY is a “commonplace message” and therefore fails to function as a trademark.#TacoTuesday

If you follow LeBron on social media, then you’d know that Tuesday is a great day in his household as it marks Taco Tuesday. Each week, he puts out a new video of himself yelling “Taco Tuesday” in the camera with his family.
The only problem is that “Taco Tuesday” has been around for at least 20 years or more. We have been using that since the 90s so we don’t understand why LeBron thinks he should own the term.
If anyone should own “Taco Tuesday,” they should be a Latino since that is who originated the term. NOT LeBron!
It’s Taco Tuesday at the James residence tonight! ????
