I'd rather see them paint

Susan Bees Portrait of the Artist as a Young Pig, 1983, Brooklyn Museum
  • Susan Bee's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Pig," 1983, Brooklyn Museum

Brummett has a funny column today about the Razorbacks' absurd move to trademark the phrase "We didn't come to paint." What the hell does it mean, anyway? We're not sissies? We're not going to paint your kitchen? We'd rather be dead than wear smocks? You'll never catch us in art class?

Can anything be trademarked?
