    Hey - he moved the silos!

    Needs some red.

    Foghorn Leghorn is still the winner in my book.

    How does corn on the half-shell (or any of the previous incarnations of the HT Logo) qualify? I'm perplexed.

    (Nice Python reference, by the way) :)

    It's a very tenuous relationship, but I'm assuming the "polytheistic references" refer to the original "Venus on the half shell" (actual title "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli) and its link to ancient Roman mythology.

    I was going to paste in the actual painting -- but I didn't want to get in trouble for posting nudity! :nono:

    But I think it's meant to refer to corn as a pearl in an oyster.

    Nothing tenuous at all... it visually plays on the image of venus. I was just being a smarthind. I figured if it wasn't me someone would say it. I like the various logos..... it's given us all something to talk about if nothing else.

    I liked the cow being beamed away... but I find the evolving logo funny when I think about someone hitting the site who has never been here and... beaming cows!

    Too funny.

    I found that if I saw the cow being beamed up out of the corner of my eye, it looked like Zippy the Pinhead!

    That was Foghorn? I wondered, it wasn't very clear on my monitor.

    I just figured the site was getting sponsorship money from Shell to promote ethanol made from corn! :shrug:
