Especially with this photo, it’s like the designers are getting more and more nearsighted and just keeping zooming on in.

Thanks to the anonymous submitter who sent this blood center logo our way. It’s weak to begin with, but she pointed out that once you see the vulva herein it cannot by unseen.

T-Square Overload

by Earl of Hurl on January 5, 2011

Need DIY or Fixit help? Why not ask The Natural Andyman?

If not for the helpful URL below the logo (not to mention the Registered Tradmark – always important) I’d really, truly think Andyman was a new vocab word. “Andyman: A traveling hippie who dispenses wisdom and pharmacological herbs to drifters.

Thanks to Barfer Heather for sending in this illegible logo.

Barfer Amy C implores us to visit:

“Welcome to picturesque Hansville, WA. Known for its lighthouse, sweeping views of Puget Sound, and luxury beachfront homes.  Please stop by our visitor center to check the latest tide and weather info on our state of the art Apple IIe.”

We checked. Hansville doesn’t seem to have a logo. But someone designed this sign, and…it’s horrible.
