Nintendo Seeks To Trademark Ice Cube Lyrics

This is automatically today's weirdest story, I don't care what else happens today.

CNN is reporting that Nintendo has filed a request with the Patent and Trademark office to protect the phrase "It's on like Donkey Kong."

This also happens to be the first line in the Ice Cube track, "Now I Gotta Wet 'Cha." The request seems pretty well-timed to be used in ads supporting the upcoming release of Donkey Kong Country Returns, and at this point I'll only be satisfied if the song is used in the ads or if Cube appears in the advertising for the game. Anything less is a missed opportunity on the grandest scale!
While I'm making demands, Call of Duty: Black Ops players are now encouraged to force the following exchange whenever shooting another player. 

"You won, G!"

"Won what?"

"The wet T-shirt contest, motherfucker!"


Please act accordingly (and feel free to occasionally shout "don't go to court in Torrance" while playing any Phoenix Wright game).
