Timeout, What The Fuck Is Our Logo?

Anyone else catch this thing? Am I the last one? As the captain of this ship I probably should have taken a look at this a little further at some point.

For those of you that don't know, this logo was the brainchild of co-blogger Craw and an unknown amount of hours of Microsoft Paint. I'm not mad at it, because this has been our identifier for the past 1.5 years, but I'm definitely at a loss at what's really going on here.

Is it just me or is it some sort of hybrid human-spider creature that graduated from a top 50 business school and now works as an entry-level accountant pondering what he should get for lunch? Now that I think of it, this logo is perfect for the blog. Just represents what we're about over here. Minimal effort for a solid product. Despite the "total hours" Craw spent making it, I bet there were a couple snack breaks, a bathroom run, and a few trips upstairs to see what everyone is doing. Basically spent like 4 minutes cycling between the paint bucket and the eraser to come up with a pretty damn good/weird logo.

Kinda like how every blog is made. Here's my "Secret Blog Formula": Come up with a weird idea/scan the web for a weird idea, vomit words on, absolutely don't proofread, publish post, blast that shit on Facebook and Twitter annoying people, and go about my night. Process takes about 4 minutes. Not saying I'm doing it well, but no one can knock that efficiency. I'm like a robot that somehow managed to get drunk and forgot how to spell some words.

So if you really think about it, the logo is anything you want it to be. Or a spider-dude sitting at a desk.

    Always figured it was a dude leaning back with a pen in his mouth.
