    I bet alcohol was involved. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    DirtyBeerDogDemon or the original GECKO would have to answer that. Gecko may have been beamed back up to the mother ship though. It's pretty much right up there with the Coca-Cola symbol though as a pop culture icon so I can't see changing it.

    I always thought it was an upside down cow. Actually it reminds me of the Mooby cow.

    I dunno. Bit I cant imagine you without you holding a giant hot dog. It's disturbing and comforting at the same time. I throw up in my mouth a little but somehow it taste like coconut so its okay.

    It's 2 things, it's an upside down monkey head and a guy riding a bike if you were looking at the rider straight on.
