Funny. I suggest Ku Klux Klan bedsheets. Why limit ourselves to literature when an ignorance of it is probably related to little memory of history overall? The branding opportunities are immense! What's a bit frightening in all of this is that much of the consumer reaction to the story has been smug, snippy celebration of ignorance, as in "so it's a word, what's the big deal?" I've written a bit about the brand marketing implications of this situation at DIM BULB, if you'd like to check it out: http://dimbulb.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/02/doomed-to-repea.html
