... first Michael Jackson allegedly used it to ply little boys and now a CBS producer and his wife want to bottle it to ply your little wallets.

This is one of those stories I'd rather bury, but I know most people will be just as offended as I am. Point is they have to see it and read it know ... right? Good!
It seems odd that anyone would want to be associated with the alleged capers of Michael Jackson and young boys, but two people in California—one of them a longtime CBS Evening News producer who covered MJ's most recent child molestation case—have attempted to trademark "Jesus Juice," the term he allegedly called the wine that he offered boys.
JJ Merlot Label
Lest that connection be too subtle for anyone, the logo, which is still under consideration by the U.S. patent office according to, shows a Jackson-like figure with a black fedora and one sequined glove, in a pose like that of Jesus on the cross. Uh, despite recent successes of strangely named wine like Fat Bastard and Smoking Loon, we're not so sure this one will be a big hit.
Excuse me? In this country, in this day and age? It will be the brown bag bottle of choice for every homeless soul by the turn of the decade; even Christian bums prefer a good merlot you know.
