Is the Amazon Logo a Penis?

Illustration for article titled Is the Amazon Logo a Penis?

Amazon has been using its current logo for 18 years. The online retailer started using the logo in June 2000, shortly after it expanded beyond selling books. The logo shows the company’s name, with an arrow that points from the “A” to the “Z” in the name.

The design is supposed to convey that it sells everything from A to Z. To me, it conveys a penis. And I am far from the first person to notice this.

Amazon did not respond to a Gizmodo request for comment on its logo’s semblance to a penis.
