Why should Charlie Sheen be the only one profiting off his bizarre rants?
It seems that singer Jimmy Buffett, known for songs like “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” is also hoping to benefit from the nonsense that Sheen is spewing–Buffett’s company Margaritaville Enterprises has filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to use the now notorious term “tiger blood” as the name for a new vodka and energy drink.

The phrase was just one of many Sheen utterances during his disastrous (and according to many, hilarious) series of interviews that led to his firing from CBS’ Two and a Half Men. Sheen was referring to his red-colored energy drink XANGO during an interview, which he called his “tiger blood.”
And though Buffett seems eager to profit from Sheen’s recent notoriety, the makers of XANGO don’t feel the same way. A spokesperson said that the company has “no commercial arrangement with Charlie Sheen, nor would it consider any formal association with the actor.” (Fox News)
