What was a mostly unremarkable name as little as a year ago is now a registered trademark. Apparently sexy Russian spy Anna Chapman has recently trademarked her name, which, believe it or not, is not actually "sexy Russian spy Anna Chapman" but just "Anna Chapman."
Why would she do such a thing? No one knows for sure, but an officer at Russia's state patent agency, which broke the news, told Reuters, "Maybe she wants to open the Anna Chapman dry-cleaner, or make cookies."
Cookies? Nice try, old man — Reuters ended up getting a more salacious tip elsewhere:
Chapman, nicknamed Agent "90-60-90" by the Russian press, referring to her alleged measurements, asked to register her name as a trademark for eight lines of merchandise, including vodka, clothing, and watches, popular daily Komsomolskaya Pravda reported, saying the trademark would last until 2020.
So get ready to spend the next nine years of your life getting wasted on "Anna Chapman tonics."
