Charlie Sheen aiming to trademark 22 catchphrases. Duh, it's a winning move.

Larry Solters, Charlie Sheen’s rep and “warlock-in-training” (his words), confirms to EW that the violent torpedo of an actor is seeking to trademark a total of 22 phrases he’s unleashed on the world since his public meltdown(?). Among the phrases that you may soon be able to wear shamefully proudly on your chest: “Vatican Assassin,” “Tiger Blood,” “Rock Star From Mars,” “I’m Not Bi-Polar, I’m Bi-Winning,” and, of course, “Duh, Winning.”

Unlike many of Sheen’s decisions over the past few months (like, oh, wielding a machete), I actually applaud this move. After all, it makes more sense than when Paris Hilton made “That’s Hot” her own and when Donald Trump tried to tradmark “You’re Fired,” a phrase originating in the late 18th century that is said by nearly everyone in the world at least once. Because even though the homeless man in the alleyway by your apartment may be just as creative, the phrases “Violent Torpedo of Truth” and “Rock Star from Mars” are undeniably all Charlie. Why shouldn’t he profit off of his (incredibly frightening) imagination? Of course, we’ll have to wait and see to find out how a “Vatican Assassin” trademark will affect whatever Dan Brown’s next book will be. I predict a novel full of ™s.

    Hopefully this means Sheen stories become too expensive for the media to print anymore.

    • bill

    • Melly

      Loved the picture – looks like he’s trying to squeeze out a fart.

      • anonymous

        That rash on his chin is so unflattering. Can only imagine how he got that !

  • Jim

    Stop wasting your website with updates about this bozo….

    • Tom

      Charlie is more interesting it seems, than any of the comicbook movies these days.. I have no idea why either.

  • margaret ramsay

    Oh my god, whatever next! Who on this earth cares about his so-called catch phrases, or anything else about him for that matter. He needs certifying that’s for sure though his enormous ego would probably prevent any mental help getting through.

    smart move.

  • Midori

    I’m trade marking every word in every language on the Earth.

    Now you owe me $56.78 million dollars for this article.

    • Templar

      The cheque is in the mail.

      • cameobrooch

        Don’t you mean, “The (TM) cheque (TM) is (TM) in (TM) the (TM) mail(TM)?”

      • Meg

        Let’s not forget the punctuation either.

  • SenorPlaid

    “Tradmark”??? Losing!

    • julio ortiz

      Winning is when c.sheen makes money

  • Don Alex

    Notice that the people who profess to not care about Sheen’s antics are always the one to post on articles about him. Hmmm. lol

    • @Don

      I’m guessing that like me they come here to express their displeasure about Sheen’s antics, which is our right.

      • Curtis

        Sure, it is your right to express your displeasure with his ‘antics’, just as it is his right to be able express himself through rants. If you dont like them dont listen to them. Let him live his life. Why do you care so much?

  • what duh

    lets see how fast he wears out the novelty of all this and the “fickle fans” move on to some other “celebrity” …

  • STFUCharlie

    Here’s another one you can trademark, Charlie. It goes like this… “STFU Charlie!”

  • DRG

    EW’s obsession with Charlie Sheen is starting to rival its obsession with Lady Ca Ca. Please, EW, on to something else.

  • Brett

    I think the Catholic Church already has the trademark on “Vatican Assassin.”

    • Templar

      Nope. Their’s is Vatican”s Assassins.

  • Jean Genie

    He should date Snooki, shouldn’t he? Didn’t she not only trademark her name, but also considers herself a “businesswoman”?

  • Jason M.

    Bored now.

  • Karl

    Like someone said,why wasting time with this bozo? This basket case needs to be locked up in a mental institution for a long time,winning?
    Sure,all kinds of booing and this is the beginning of the end.

  • jason

    i don’t think that means he makes money when the media talks about him and uses those phrases but charlie can make money anytime those phrases are used to sell something, t shirts hats etc. kinda like the term 3 peat is trademarked by pat riley, so when the bulls three peated twice every piece of merchandise that carried that slogan some $ went into his pocket
