You’ve read my previous coverage of the absurd steak bomb patenting story HERE and HERE, but for those fascinated by this story like I am, check out the WMUR local news report on the situation.

    Don’t these clowns at USA Subs realize that every subshop sells steak bombs. If they wanted to trademark something and then enforce it, couldn’t they have been a little more creative, and not used something that has been around for 50+ years. Good luck franchising out now that the media has exposed you as the fools that you obviously are.

    Great video!!! This guy wants to make sure theres no confusion between his Steak Bombs and everyone else’s?? What a foolish statement. There’s a thousand subshops that sell Steak Bombs that are very much similar. Hopefully people no longer eat his steak bombs, that would be a great distinction.

    After returning from vacation last week, I was reading through back issues of the Concord Monitor that I had missed while I was gone. I was amused to read the Aug. 30 article about USA Subs in Derry getting a trademark on the name Steak Bomb. What is next for him? Why not trademark “sub” as well? That name originated in Pennsylvania in the early 1900s with a woman named Mrs. Agostino DiCostanza.

    When I was stationed at Fort Jackson, S.C., in 1967, guess what all the pizza shops were selling to us hungry GIs? That’s right: Steak Bombs. When I was in high school prior to going into the service in 1967, there was a little café on Bow Street in Franklin called the Blue Moon, and guess what one of their sandwiches was called? Yep, the Steak Bomb.

    How can USA Subs, which was formed in 1986, make claim to a sandwich that was in existence at least 20 years prior to that? An even bigger question is: What was the government official who issued that trademark having for lunch that day?
