before we get the new valentine's day logo, remember last year's?



a big kerfuffle ensued about the "misspelling", with allusions to Barnabe Googe being made!

The strawberry's stem is the L.

The strawberry itself is extraneous; the chocolate spill is the g.

Of Course, why would you need fruit if you already have chocolate?

The g wasn't in question, but otherwise:

Oh, that Barnabe Googe! The one with the Goo-goo-googey eyes.

How do you-all do that? Get just the image of the logo, I mean?

But: I can't see all the letters that are s'posed to be there. I guess the lady's right arm plus the balloon strings are a tilted l; I was thinking the man's back could be the o but I simply cannot see a g after it. The man's back plus down to the bottom of his right leg could be the g, maybe--but in that case where the heck is the o?

Weird image, seems like they are in hurry. Hurricane coming up?
Do they have to represent those characters always?

he's the O, her reflection makes the rest of the G, I suppose.

I think the idea is we all know what it says, anyway, so...
