McJob. McDonalds Corporation recently threw a fit over the fact that Mirriam-Webster admitted the term "McJob" into the latest edition of their dictionary as a term meaning "a form of low-paying, short-term drudgework available to the unskilled". McDonalds swears that this terminology is unfairly denigratory to the tiny percentage of their associates who actually have jobs worth keeping and has demanded that the word be removed. A company named McJobs—that places the nearly unemployable in unskilled positions—has also filed suit, claiming that entering the name of their company in a dictionary entry unfairly dilutes their trademark. Note that McJobs®—the company—doesn't particularly dispute the definition.
