After the Crisis Once this economic crisis blows over, a lot of companies will need their logos redesigned. Here's a dozen or so.

Their sub prime primer comic is pretty good too.

I wish each of these had "AMIRITE?!" after them.

So, they do a logo for Ferrari, which is booming, but they don't do one for Honda, which is asking for a bailout? Sure, the Ferrari logo was an easy one to parody. But Ferrari is a long way from troubled.

I really wanted to like this but the execution and research were lazy as hell.

What's that Nike thing meant to be? A smirk? A flamboyant mustache? Sperm?

These are exactly the possibilities that went through my mind, too.

Had some merit, but the selection of logos is just weak:

Ford - only member of the Big 3 not to need bailout money
Yahoo! - had problems long before the economic crisis
Best Buy - who just lost a main competitor

If by "driven" you mean, "visited on the web on the recommendation of a fpp."

Sorry, what? Honda isn't at the verge of bankruptcy by any means. They did ask the Japanese government for some loans; supposedly this is to help them fund more car loans to individuals in the USA, given the decreased availability of credit here.

I was really hoping this would somehow involve a comic book spoof.

So these are kind of like Wacky Packages without the funny?
