She’s finally gone and done it.

Not satisfied with having Disney-fied Hampden, Denise Whiting—owner of Café Hon and creator of Honfest—is going national. She has registered the word “hon” as a federal trademark, according to an article in the Baltimore Messenger. As the self-proclaimed owner of the word, Whiting has a licensing agreement with the Maryland Transit Administration to use “hon” in its ad campaign for fare cards.

Somebody better tell all those working-class women who created the term that it’s time to send in their dues.
