On most days, we'd say it's pretty safe to assume that pretty much everyone can tell the different between a rooster and a penis! However, one Welsh fried chicken company is stirring up a lot of controversy over this very question!
This all goes back to Dirty Bird, a fried food truck that travels to different music festivals and events throughout the country! The cock in question is from their logo, which at first glance appears to be a harmless cartoon rooster!
However, it doesn't take a genius to realize that this bird looks an awful lot like a penis!
The company started getting complaints from people who felt the logo was inappropriate, but designer Mark James says that is NOT what he was shooting for! He says:
"We were given the name Dirty Bird as the brief, and started working on ideas. We looked at the initials, DB. Then worked with the lowercase ‘db’ linking them to form the shape of a rooster. It’s graphic representation of a rooster incorporating the initials. It depends on how you look at it."
Wow! It's suddenly all making sense! The stuff shooting out of the rooster's head? Obviously that's just its comb! And it's pretty clear that what we first thought were the hairy balls are actually just feathers and wings! DUH!
But before you start thinking that Dirty Bird is 100% innocent, there are a few red flags that lead us to believe they know EXACTLY what they're doing!
First of all, the company's Twitter feed is pretty much only retweeting articles that are pointing out the phallic nature of their logo! That's probably not something you would do if you were trying to distance yourself from these rumors!
Secondly, Dirty Bird has gained a reputation for their not-so-innocent posters with messages like "Touch My Thigh" and "Touch My Breast!" Ha!
If you ask us, this thing is CLEARLY a penis, but their explanations make a lot of sense and are surprisingly G-rated! What do U think readers?
