OK, let's see....

Bounty = 6 letters.

Brawny = 6 letters.

Both names start with an upper case "B" and both end with a lower case "y".

Seems there are potentially millions to be made by lawyers exploiting this similarity.

Seriously, I don't think the average consumer gives a rat's ass about the design on their paper towels. They just want them to absorb spills and clean up messes. We but what's on sale and use the generic "paper towels" when writing a grocery list. One is as good as the other.

Hope no taxpayer money is being funneled into this frivolous lawsuit. And we wonder why our country's economy has gone down the toilet.
