PostSubject: An example of how stupid I am   Mon May 28, 2012 8:13 pm

So I'm looking at the BoB logo on the home page. I'm stareing at the two pipes leaned into oneanother brim to brim. I ask my self......, "Why in the world is there some kind of silouette of a very pudgy Kiwi bird walking over the pipes? I go away for a few hours and look again. ...."For the love of God!! This makes NO SENSE at all!! What's with the Kiwi bird?!

I just realized it is supposed to depict smoke.

This is NOT a knock on the designer of the logo.... Its just how screwed up my brain is. bounce

I asked the same question a few years back. And you're right, you'll never "not" see it again.

I always saw a kiwi bird; never saw smoke. Now I see smoke; where'd the bird go?

Not to ruin all the fun but the kiwi was deliberate. If memory serves me,
The designer was a New Zealander or a shoe shine boy.

Huh. I always saw a thick-necked female elephant seal moving to the right. That was after the kiwi, though. I got bored with the kiwi.

Now I have a choice of elephant seal or kiwi I'm confused. It's like that spinning ballerina all over again...

I never noticed that before. Geez.

I heard Kiwi dabbled with stem polish at one point though.

Oh-em-gee, great prank: take your buddy's pipe, "polish" it with black shoe polish.

Black-lipped pipe smoker. cheers Everyone laughs, except the victim. Reminiscent of the shoe-polish-on-the-telescope gag.

Probably wouldn't work, though--they'd smell it or smear it beforehand. Just funny in my head.

Cool

Shoe polish on the stem- diabolical! Oh yeah. Kiwi's got to figure in the next BoB Bombers run. Cool

I always thought kiwi was a fruit, and now at 46 I find out it's a bird. I am really looking forward to alzeheimers, just as long as I can remember where I put the penzance. Sleep

This should clear it up for you, Dutch:



I don't know which part they make the shoe polish from.
