A reader at Neatorama reveals the dark Masonic secret of the Toblerone logo: a hidden bear! If you look closely at the mountain that’s on every bar of Toblerone chocolate, you can see a bear standing on his hind legs. It also looks like there’s a goldfish cracker near the base of the mountain, but that might just be because we’re hungry. [Neatorama]

Purina On Virgin Mary-Esque Packaging: They "Reflect The Close Bond Between The Consumer And Their Pet."

We received a response tonight to the inquiry we sent Purina on 4/09/07 asking if there was any truth to the rumors (which we spread) that the recurrent “Woman And Kitty” imagery that bedecks numbers of their pet food packages seemed to recall, if not draw directly from, the “Madonna And Child” motif (undoubtedly to serve manipulative marketing ends).

Dear Purina: Why Do You Love The Virgin Mary So?

As we mentioned last week, the packaging on several kinds of Purina cat chow feature pictures that seem to be influenced by the Madonna and Child motif. To get to the bottom of the mystery, we sent Purina this letter:

Purina Pays More Homage To Madonna And Child Motif, For Some Strange Reason

Yesterday we posted about how a package of Purina Naturals cat food bore striking resemblance to the Madonna And Child motif, a central icon of Christianity, represented in hundreds of paintings through thousands of years of human history.

VIDEO: Remove Cellphone Logos With Sugar

Remove Cell Phone Logos With Sugar?

We haven’t tried this, but if you’re sick of having a logo on your cell phone, you can try to remove it with sugar. Warning: You might mess up your phone. That being said, go for it. They don’t own you! From Instructables:

The key is to scratch of the logo without leaving and marks on the surface of the phone (in my case PDA). Sugar works perfectly.

KFC = Kentucky Fried Chicken

Thank god for small favors, “KFC” is back to Kentucky Fried Chicken after over a decade of trying to make us forget the “fried” part. Or, come to think of it, maybe it was the “Kentucky” they were worried about. Anyway, it’s back, and the Colonel himself has undergone a bit of a redesign. He now sports an apron, which is a nice touch.
