Kudos to the graphic artist who designed the logo for the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center:
It was a perfect design. The man or woman who designed this logo chose an eagle, to remind us of the federal government's authority. But it's a rather … threatening eagle. An almost obscenely threatening eagle. Exactly the sort of eagle that government tech dweebs and lawyers who, to be honest, are third tier or why would they be working for a department whose mission is to seize fake Rolex watch sites?, need to see to pump up their deflated sense of self-worth.
I mean, fighter pilots don't use logos that threatening. Bikers don't use logos that threatening.
Well, maybe the bikers do.
That image, to people who know what the letter "M" stands for (13th letter in the alphabet, got it tattooed on my biceps!), is so iconic that only a government tech dweeb or a lawyer so useless they put her in the agency that seizes websites selling fake Rolex watches (because fourth generation Kennedys have to work somewhere), wouldn't recognize its similarity to the NIPRCC logo.
All that's missing is the mouse:
Yes, whoever designed this logo was sending a big, fat LAST ACT OF DEFIANCE to a government that's owned, lock, stock, and barrel, by The Man. My hat is off.
And my hat will be off to YOU, Popehat reader who has talent with Photoshop, and I know we have some of you (I did this from a hospital waiting room with Microsoft Paint), who can add the mouse to the logo properly.
50,000 Quatloos to the Photoshop artist who forces the government to redesign this logo!
