    What a complete waste of time and money. Really, Duke University? Do you think if there was a picture of John Wayne on the bottle we’d still be confused?

      Agree. I’ll bet the majority of the country knows nothing about Duke University or has never heard of it.

        Maybe the family should counter sue charging “Duke University” with impersonating a major well know university.

        John Wayne founded a university?

    In a related story the syndicators of Brad Anderson’s Great Dane cartoons, in order to head off the wrath of Duke, have changed the Dog’s name to Marmakrzyzewski.

    Meanwhile, the Earl of Duke was unavailable for comment.

    And I would bet much of the younger generation has no idea who “The Duke” is. He died in 1979 – before many of them were born.

      I don’t think my kids know John Wayne was referred to as The Duke, and my husband is a huge John Wayne fan.

        You should ask them. I’d be interested in the answer.
