The Negative Plus

In the continuing feud between Visa and Microsoft
to trademark the world's richest dog, one company
issued a warning to allegedly cunning children

who have taken to looking all "3-D":
"We are going after everyone in Japan."
And e-mailed the reciprocal disclaimer:

"3-D art" could be "three-dimensional," but also perhaps
"three-day," as in "a three-day, two-dimensional,
hand-held rubber-stamping event."
