Now there's a logo we can all get behind.

I'm sure many are bent over in awe of that logo.

It looks like a thingy going in a bum!

Best logo? If I were to create a list of great logos, I'd place that one near the bottom.

It looks like a Temple with the sun setting behind it. Kind of boring I'd say.

That logo needs further analysis.

C'mon you guys. You're giving this logo a bum rap.

The translation. No hiding their feelings about the East there.

Here I was, ready and rearing for something great, but it's really just totally banal. What a bummer.

Yes, I'm sure Metafilter will provide just the sort of penetrating analysis we've all come to expect, hengeman. Penetrating. Analysis.

If that logo had been posted without text, and I'd been asked to guess what it represented, my response would have been
"National Cornholing Week"

I was "pooing" yellow stuff out of my "red ass" as I scrolled down the comments. It was nearly "diarrhea-atic."

You were very asstute to find that!

Go crap in another thread, Mach3avelli. We gave our honest assessments, and I'm hurt that you would suggest they're full of shit.

That is truly the best of the web.

But this thread is seriously lacklustre.

You guys are such tightasses about a little logo.

Some of these comments are really stretching it. This isn't the sort of thread where you can just put something into the box.

The Babelfish translation of the pages (especially this one) sounds remarkably like The Manolo.

I tried to think of a funny bum pun, but I'm at my wit's end.
