I never thought much about the Starbucks logo before, but yesterday, I stopped at the “original” (colloquially, at least) Starbucks location, and I realized that the old logo was kind of cool.
A topless Melusine (two-tailed mermaid) holding up both tails, beckoning people to consume caffeinated beverages is … at least … weirdly original.
As I stood there gawking at the drawing, however, I couldn’t help but wonder why the boobs had been drawn in such an uninspired, physically-improbable way.
I mean, her knockers are way too far apart, and seeing that this is all fiction anyway … I would have spent a few extra bucks to give her a little Jessica Rabbit action on the front end.
Even though it’s a far cry from visually perfect, dare I say that the old logo is far more endearing than the Big Brother’s Eye that we have today:
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find this logo to be completely and utterly un-fappable.
Wait a minute …
Never mind, I take that back.
The old one is still better, though.
