    I know it's an apple with a question mark, but for a while I thought that the dot of the question mark was a nose, and the seeds were eyes, and it looks like a little rat apple

    Anyone else see it?

    I can kind of see what you mean. For the longest time, I never really noticed the question mark and then one day I just suddenly realised what the logo actually was. :eek:

    I just figured it out now :rolleyes:

    At least you didn't think it was a rat initially... LOL
    Although it does tie in with the rumorsss... no I'm trying too hard

    ...with an Elvis coif (sp?)!

    I actually noticed the apple and question mark the first time I visited the site - but I am in marketing and I tend to notice this kind of thing - but I never thought of 'a little rat apple'. But it does actually look like 'a little rat apple' now I look more closely.

    There was a thread awhile back about the MR logo and I drew whiskers on it...
    Let's see if I can find it...

    Ah-ha. Here we go.

    Personally, I think this thread is a bit more relevant. :p (If you read my linked thread, there's another link to yet, an older thread about the same subject, IIRC.)


    Well, I think it was previously coined, a "mole." :D Hm, this post actually. Heh. Two years ago. :p

    I know, me too. It's going to turn out just like the Fedex arrow. Why did I have to click on this link in Forum Spy?

    For an early April Fool's gag, Arn will now auto-wasteland posts from everyone that thinks his logo looks like a rat. :p

    Personally, I love it, so early-Applish. **sucks up to MR uber-God**

    Ditto, never realised there was a question mark there, or that it could look like a rat/mole.

    It's still going to look like an apple firstly to me though.

    You know, I've seen that logo what 1,000 times? I had to go back and look when you said that. Now that you have mentioned it, it seems really obvious...just like the arrow in the Fed Ex logo...
