Snooki Memoir Coming?

FEBRUARY 16--Following in the trailblazing footsteps of "The Situation," fellow "Jersey Shore" cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi wants the federal government to issue a trademark for her nickname.

According to this February 7 filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the 22-year-old Polizzi is seeking to use the trademark for two separate commercial classes: "Entertainment in the nature of personal appearances by a television personality," and--in what will terrify fans of fine literature--"Printed matter, namely books."

The Marlboro, New York resident's USPTO application (which set her back $650) was submitted by an intellectual property lawyer with the Buffalo-based firm Phillips Lytle. Sadly, Polizzi's filing did not include a "Snooki" logo, just a simple type treatment of her nickname.

Her application came a few days after TSG reported that "Jersey Shore" mook Michael Sorrentino had filed for a trademark for "The Situation," the nickname he has given his abdominal muscles. (5 pages)
