False Advertising -- A gallery of parody. [via Life in the Present]

I clicked through half a dozen of these and none of them were funny. Oooh... "shitibank", how original!

The tagline, "a gallery of parody" sounds promising. Now that's false advertising.

I went through about 12 of them. It didn't get any better.

A buddy of mine had to do some parody logos in Advertising school. They where pretty lame, but funnier than these.
No hard feelings, Ljubljana.
You know what we need? A nick autocomplete feature, like you have in mIRC.
Any Firefox extension developers out there?

I wish these images were a lot bigger...not that it would make them funnier, it would just make me leave the site quicker since even these 26kB images take awhile to load.

Personally, I think its way more fun to make your own...get all the corporate logos you need from logotypes.ru and have fun :)

I think i've seen all these on t-shirts in Hot-Topic. Corporate logos cleverly reworked to insinuate the wearer is high! Or drunk! Or he or she rejects the corporate paradigm! Or he or she knows about ecstasy!

These have been around for a long time but they are still fun to look at ... thanks for posting Sister.

And then the site died. Or they just put it in intensive care, either way, visiting hours are over for now.
