    Oh man

    I laughed for about a minute straight.

    going to give it to my friend who is a graphic design/typography instructor at the local coolege to use in class as example of good logo/bad client.

    It took me several minutes to see what all the fuss was about. I think it's quite a stretch to call that logo suggestive. People must just have really dirty minds...

    If you don't get it click there for the GIF "describing" (possibly NSFW)

    I was checking Reddit in a cafe and I started snorting. A girl sitting beside me looked at me strangely so I showed her the article. I think we stopped snickering after about a minute.

    I do wonder if the designers were sneaking it in for a laugh.

    Oh... so this is where it came from. I saw this on a "fail" page. I hope they'll change it... unless they're giving the mouse pads to kiddies with unpolluted minds.

    The latest news that came out on the blogosphere (so is most likely unsubstantiated nonsense) is that apparently they are grasping the bull by the, er, particulars and going with it.

    I didn't find it that amusing, but that's probably because I'm fuming for not receiving royalties for using my image.
