Disney's on it! Trademarks 'Seal Team 6'

This is surreal. Disney has trademarked the phrase "Seal Team 6" and is bringing out "...toys, games, movies, snow globes ... Christmas stockings and Christmas ornaments..."

Snow globes? Christmas ornaments?

If this doesn't illustrate the madness of our world right now I'm not sure you'll ever get it. Wonder if Disney has plans for a toy titanium fanged German Shepherd?

Two days after U.S. Navy Seals Team 6 made headlines around the world for the dramatic raid that killed terror mastermind Osama Bin Laden, the Walt Disney Company trademarked their name, reports FishbowlNY.
This doesn't effect how the Navy uses the moniker for military purposes, but it does mean we may soon be seeing 'Seal Team 6' branded products and entertainment.
According to records viewable online with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Disney filed the Trademark paperwork on May 3, 2011 for 'Seal Team 6'.

Oh, and there's this:
The records show Disney applied to use the name for 'entertainment and education services'. [italics and bold mine]
