> The toy is part of a line of VIP Products called Silly Squeakers that mimic liquor, beer, wine and soda bottles. They include Mountain Drool, which parodies Mountain Dew, and Heini Sniff’n, which parodies Heineken. A court in 2008 barred the company from selling its Budweiser parody, ButtWiper.

Props to the folks at VIP Products for their refined sense of humour.

Costco has a line of these toys but it's mimicking their Kirkland Sig line of booze and other products with similar puns. Even a dog toy membership card. Wonder if other lawsuits are incoming.

Some co's will let things slide. But "butt wiper"? Yeah, don't poke the bear.

Budweiser probably holds the copyright to ButtWiper.

They certainly hold the recipe.

Hey, dont insult the people who like eating crap. Now those who like chewing on products that clean crappy butts….

i would think they could argue that there is no infraction here because the products are non competing...

But let's be real, Budweiser is aimed at dogs.

If I recall correctly, Budweiser's primary complaint against ButtWiper was that butwiper also tasted like budweiser. Or that Budweuser tasted like buttwipe, i don't remember exactly.
