KISS rockEr GEnE Simmons announcEs intEntions to tradEmark thE lEttEr ‘E’

KISS bassist Gene Simmons, the astute businessman who has helped to turn the legendary rock band into a merchandising juggernaut, has announced his latest business venture.

The Israeli-born Simmons, whose birth name is Chaim Witz, issued a press release stating he has successfully trademarked the letter “E”.

“From now on, whenever books, newspapers or Internet Websites use the letter E, they must now pay me a royalty fee of one cent per time,” Simmons said in the statement.

The rocker did say that he would grant an exemption for those who use the letter E in casual conversation, but politicians who use the fifth letter in the alphabet in political speeches must pay five cents per word.

Simmons, who was recently fired from Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, added: “I’ve merchandised everything imaginable with KISS, from crayons to coffins. I’ve gotten bored and needed a new way to make more money. So I thought, why not trademark the most commonly used letter in the English alphabet? This idea could indeed make me the world’s very first trillionaire.” (Simmons is estimated to be worth several hundreds of millions of dollars).

The rocker, who speaks fluent Hebrew, said he is even considering trademarking the Hebrew letter Aleph (א), which is the first letter of its alphabet.

What do Simmons’ family and friends think of his most recent venture? His longtime girlfriend, Shannon Tweed, had this to say: “If Gene weren’t so consumed with making money, maybe he’d finally get around to marrying me!”
