Descriptive AND Disgusting

You thought Steve Martin was joking in The Jerk with “Cup ‘o’ Pizza“?  Apparently someone else did not.  For your consideration and to test your stomach’s mettle, I give you K! PizzaconeI guess the K was added because they’ve got to have something protectable on the trademark front, as the PTO has already figured out without too much difficulty that “pizzacone” is descriptive.  Here’s another lesson, kids: when your trademark identifies the thing you’re asking for and can be used in the singular and plural, you’ve got a term bound for Genericness Land. 

One review describes the pizzacone as having “a convenience-snack item texture, feel, and flavor.”  Buon appetito, folks – me, I’ll stick with watching The Jerk.
