    No, no, no... the arrow is pointing you towards the toilet to remind you to do your daily duties after eating breakfast and before going to work.

    But what about the tuning fork in the capital E? Is that to encourage you to expand your cultural horizons by learning to play a musical instrument?


    Or maybe they're trying to say have fun riding your Yamaha to work.

    Yamaha made its bones as a piano manufacturer.

    I think the four points in the x all coming together in the center are telling you that your boss has got you between a rock and a hard place and you're on the verge of losing your job.


    And the captial F means you're...

    They've got cultural horizons pretty well covered with the pyramids in the X. Clearly, they are recommending that discerning yuppies visit the Great Pyramid of Giza.

    Man, I had no idea that FedEx was such a culturally diverse company. :wow:

    :rofl: :rofl:

    Well now every time I see a Fedex employee I'm going to say "hey you know there's a hidden picture in your logo?" and after they roll their eyes and say "yes yes.. we know... an... arrow" I'm going to be like "oh.... I was going to say a measuring spoon.. but the arrows kinda neat too, I guess.."

    I think we've got FedEx figured out. I'm gonna start analyzing that Hooters logo...

    I'm 43 years old, and been a hunter since I was old enough to hold a long gun steady. Imagine how stupid I felt when last summer I was staring at a Browning logo on the back glass of a pickup at a traffic light, when I realized that inside of the buck's head was a doe's head. :brickwall:

    Mulva??? :rofl::rofl:




    Clearly, it means FedEx is a white supremacist group. Arrow-an nation, anyone???

    I guess I'll be using UPS from now on. :steamed:

    Both of my parents are retired FedEx Memphis employees. When the logo changed, my mom was still working there and they had an "unveiling" ceremony. The arrow was pointed out to them during that (in case anyone missed it).

    Clearly, any situation can find its way back to a Seinfeld reference. ;)
