Wow. The winner is a MUCH better demonstration of figure-ground confusion than the standard candlestick-faces thing.

I haven't laughed this much in a while.

From personal experience, Head products lead to a lot of bad puns. I have a Head bag, and people really love taking it from me and then saying, "heh, you gave me head."

gurple: yeah, but try using that image in a classroom!

I think the best one is the Atherton Car Center, because that is certainly the largest one in real life. It's up there, next to a highway, and thousands drive by, aroused for a reason they know not.

That was good. Thanks. I feel like I could have a cigarette.

Hilarious. I liked the Bellwether best. That shriveled cock *has* to be subversively intentional.

Winners should be given a Hugo Award.

In a similiar vein: I once did a collage of all the corporate logos that resemble swastikas.

The winning logo may very well be the funniest thing I've ever seen linked to Metafilter. (Although gurple's got the best comment today....)

These logos, they vibrate?

Does the winning logo look to y'all like its going up the hershey highway, or is that supposed to be the head?

Goblindegook, my father designed and made the bases for the Hugos given out at WorldCon 1998 in Baltimore. He used wood from the U.S.S. Constellation. Here's a picture of one of the trophies.

Just thought y'all should know that.

This, this was what the internets were created for!

My favorite: the Czech sausage co. because apparently only Joel Grey from "Cabaret" look-alikes gobble sausages.

Looks like the brazillians changed their mind about the logo, the old mefi link now says "under construction".
