"Life Is Good" is a trademarked name

While driving in Arlington yesterday, I was behind a pickup truck with a “Life Is Good” image (embedded on a picture of a tire) on the back bumper, and I could even see the trademark “r”.  I thought it was interesting that a phrase of such common words could be trademarked, so I looked it up, here. It is both charitable and commercial.

I looked it up at USPTO and found it pretty recent (2011), with a description “Entertainment in the nature of festivals featuring live musical performances, games, speeches and food”.

The phrase for my own domain “Do Ask Do Tell” still has only the one abandoned attempt from 1995.
