Alex sent along this little gem.
WELCOME BACK, BY DESIGN! WE MISSED YOU!
Yes, one of our most infamous, hated trends, by design. A fail all on its own. Though, I must also make the observation that no matter how tempting making a logo out of initials might be, if you initials then form a butt, you have failed. Butts by Design. Cut and print.
This logo was submitted by an anonymous barfer.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but all I can see in this logo is a butt. Tilt your head to the right. Wait….. see it? It’s a butt with a stick figure tattooed on it!
If nothing else, this gives me a great idea for my next tattoo. Also: how not to design a logo.
Nothing says sexy women’s clothing like a bit of cat butt. Or a cat butt in the shape of the X Box logo. Or as many devil horns as POSSIBLE.
Thanks to Barfer Joanna for sending in the logo for Quotabl.es, which touts itself thusly:
“Quotables is where quotes live online, serving up hot little nuggets of the memorable, magical, wise and wonderful.”
Yes. Hot little nuggets. Also, you know your logo is a butt, right? Maybe when you’re out of beta you’ll have a better logo.
Another plastic surgeon’s logo. This one is positively baffling.
I can’t even begin to comprehend what’s happening here. People are pressing their butts up against a woman’s torso as a visual metaphor for bariatric surgery? She’s grown extra boobs and they’ve sloughed off to the side?
It’s like a Rorschach test. What do you see?
Barfer Neon O’Mad sent us this find, a logo for a fishing boat outfit, and commented:
Note that the “A” and “B” in the logo seem completely unrelated, and the left and right oars are shaped differently…the artist seems to have lost his concentration for some reason.
Neon O’Mad also pointed out that this logo is a, ““tribute” to the logo of Scotland’s own 70’s R&B kings, the Average White Band!”
I think the boat guys just like butts.
We’ve noticed yet another barfy logo trend. Ah, the charity/company/otherwise organized 5K. Pay a little cash, get a little exercise, maybe even score a free t-shirt! Well, if you hit up any of these barfy 5K’s, pass on the tee. You don’t want to be seen in public like that.
Crutches: You’re doing it wrong.
This is an especially difficult 5K, a run BY spaghetti FOR spaghetti. Due to the required meatball headwear, it’s generally difficult to see… albeit DELICIOUS. Good luck.
Man, it’s one of those days that I’ve eaten so much sugar that I start to see mind-numbingly-scary anthropomorphic hands running around again. I better get some exercise.
Are YOU a horse butt? Have we got the opportunity for you!
I’ve never actually seen a shamrock with knees before. Someone tell him he’s about to run smack into those festive words in a circle.
We run as one…. scary, blobbish, misformed chalk outline.
