    Forum University - is it saying F - You?

    I know this might be the obvious - but the way Forum University is done in their logo with the F and the U highlighted and the building resembling someone shooting the finger - are they secretly implying F#$k You?

    I know this is probably and hopefully just something I see in it - which if that is the case - i need to go have a few additional couch sessions.

    It definitely seems intentional to me. Pretty funny actually.

    I don't think Dennis would do that intentionally, or if he was thinking it could be interpreted in that manner. It's just F and U are the first words of their name. Not everyone interprets FU with telling someone to go firetruck themselves.

    I joined a few days ago and thought the exact same thing! Definitely down to the highlighted F U.

    Na SWR just has a wild side to him. Next you will see him sky diving yelling out FU...

    If you wanted to say that to someone, wouldn't it be FY? FU is Forum University. Nothing more, nothing less. :fu: <<< Hm...Wrong forum?

    I would have never noticed it..... Do you think they did and thought it was too late to change it at some point?
    Good thing it is not a real University

    I don't think there were any intentions (i've been generously paid to say that) but it is really funny. I didn't mean to start a conspiracy theory here - really just wanted to make sure I wasn't a sick individual for noticing it.

    Tyler (hehe) I suppose in literal terms yes it would be FY - but in a general more broad since - FU appears to imply the same thing.

    Again I don't think it was intentionally - but maybe when designing the logo someone's super id jumped in or they had a Freudian slip.

    But please don't let this take away from the awesome nature of the forum. It rocks and the guys behind the scene are amazing.

    Probably happened by coincidence, but it's quite funny and hasn't offended anyone yet. Besides, people will remember it, which works from an promoting aspect.

    I got a commercial for Forum University:::

    Billy Bob: Where do I go for Forum help?

    Jason: FU.

    Billy Bob: I'm sorry?

    Jason: FU.

    Billy Bob: You don't have to get testy. If you don't know that's fine but there is no sense in being crude about it.

    Jason: What are you talking about. I am trying to help you.

    Billy Bob: How is that helping me? I ask where to go for help and you tell me FU.

    Jason: Exactly.

    Billy Bob: Exactly What? What are you telling me?

    Jason: Im saying - FU!

    Billy Bob: Buddy - your are about to push me too far. If you don't know then fine - but the next rude gesture and you and I will have more to talk about than forums. Get my drift?

    Jason: Whatever. If you just go where I told you, then you will find what your looking for.

    Billy Bob: And where may I ask is that?

    Jason: FU.

    Billy Bob: Your an idiot. Bye.

    Jason: Well F*%k You then looser. See if I try to help.

    Thank you. I seriously think it would be a great commercial. Would beat out the GodDaddy ads.
