Am I the only one who JUST figured out that the arrow below the Amazon logo is pointing from A to Z? I always interpreted it to be a smiley face! Wow! Sometimes I amaze myself at how out of it I am!

I had no idea!

But I don't think it looks like a penis, either At least not any with which I've been personally acquainted....

I didn't realize it until it was pointed out in a segment on 60 minutes.

I loved using the FedEx arrow at the beginning of the year to teach my kids about being observers. I think the “secret messages” in logos are fascinating.

Wow, you would think with the amount of boxes Amazon sends me, I should have seen that.

And hOkie, thanks for the link...that was fun.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who hadn't noticed this until now! But, an arrow in the FedEx logo? Now I need to go look!

I didn't notice until it was pointed out to me, but have seen many articles about clever logos (including amazon and fed ex) over the years.
