Teardrops on Naked Cowboy’s Guitar

The Naked Cowboy does not have a monopoly on near-nude, cowboy-themed minstrelsy. Or so decided U.S. District Judge Barbara Jones in the Naked Cowboy’s most recent attempt to protect his brand.  The wannabe lone ranger’s lawsuit against the CBS soap opera “The Bold and The Beautiful” was thrown out because the Judge found that the similarities between the costume worn by the soap star and the Naked Cowboy were “minimal at best” and the show never spoke or showed the words “Naked Cowboy.”
