Donald Trump - You're Fired
New York real estate mogul Donald Trump has a huge ego. It is no wonder then that he attempted to trademark the phrase “You’re fired” he made famous in the hit realty show “The Apprentice” in 2004. Trump’s request was sparked by the considerable amount of merchandise featuring the phrase that was being sold in the wake of the show’s popularity. Unfortunately for him, his request to trademark the phrase, which originated in England during the late eighteenth century, was denied.
