Who does she think she is, HON!

Sorry, Hon, it's trademarked: Cafe owner owns rights to word

Does anyone really believe it's not about the money?

But the part that really pisses me off is this:

"I took ownership of it," she says of the word "Hon." "No one along the line has celebrated it or created as much with it as I have. When I started doing Cafe Hon in 1992, 18 and a half years ago, where was the city then? Where was Hampden? So you could say I took a little word, celebrated it and created change. Big change."

Who the hell does she think she is????? Hampden has been around a lot longer than her overpriced cafe and "Hon" was a celebrated Baltimore term or endearment long before her stupid pink flamingo. It just wasn't full of nouveau kitch. There were "hons" and beehives when I lived in Hampden in 1975.

Oh, puhleeze! My brother lived in Towson back in the 70s when he was working for the Inner Harbor project and he gave me a t-shirt that said "It's Bawlmer, Hon!" in like 1978 or 79. She needs to take a chill pill and pull that wedgie out.

Anyone remember the "Welcome to Baltimore" sign on the northbound BW just past 895 that someone had spray painted "Hon!" on?
