The Arby's Logo...

The Arby's Logo...

Just what the fuck is it?

On the one hand, it sorta resembles a hat... but not really. Maybe it's a mitten for someone who has whatever Lobsterboy had. What either of those two things has to do with roast beef, I have no idea... The first time I went to an Arby's, I was really in the mood for a hamburger... I was like "what do you mean you don't serve hamburgers... What the fuck do you do here then???" Instead they handed me a sandwich of flacid warm beef coated in a velveeta mush.

Perhaps the logo is the view of someone's throat as they gag when they're handed such a disgusting treat...

Or maybe, it's really a fish to further confound their customers:

Possibly it's some dude rocking out with his cock out. I know that some have this reaction to sweaty meat:

I know... It's some sorta allegory as to the roast beef being safer for you than the much more processed hamburger meat. The logo is an obvious condom, safety first!

They're opening up one of these shitholes near my house. Somehow, I don't think I'll ever bother eating there.

You would be wise to avoid Arby's, but if you ever go, get a Jamocha shake. They rule. The arby's sauce is good too, but not worth the trip alone.

Sooo, I'm getting the idea that you don't like Arby's much then ;). They certainly should fire whoever picked that logo

A friend on another message board that linked me to this charming bloggy suggested "butt plug". I like the cock-out / sweaty meat theory, though.

It is supposed to be a cowboy hat, although it may not appear that way. Here is a picture of the old Arby's sign that might help you see it:
Arby's Sign

And the red color was chosen because the color red is proven to stimulate the appetite. Most Arby's units will have the color red in their buildings or near their menu boards.

I still think it looks more like a condom than a hat... Besides, The first Arby's were in Ohio. There are no cowboys in Ohio, but plenty incentive to use contraception.

But don't take my word for it, check it out... Here are a bunch of cowboy hats.

Here are a bunch of condoms.

It's definately a condom.

If you think it's an ovenmitt you probably also think that there is such a thing as red licorice.

Funny post, but pretty pointless. The whole idea of Arby's is fast food OTHER than burgers. Being pissed at Arby's for not selling hamburgers is like being pissed at Wendy's for not selling tacos. The logo is a caricature of a Texas 10-gallon hat. Look at some of the old Arby's signs and it's obvious where this modern logo originated. Why a hat? When the Raffel brothers started the chain they wanted to call it "Big Tex" but the name was already taken. So they took the initials of "Raffel Brothers" (R.B.) but kept the big texas hat logo.

Man you must live in a big ignorant hole if you have never heard of Arby's. They are one of the FEW fast food restaurants out there that actually serve anythinhg OTHER than burgers. How self absorbed are you to think that you can just walk into any restaurant and expect them to not only make you a hamburger, but to put it on their menu. You are also obviously either too young or at least too oblivious of the rest of the world to be able to recognize their logo is indeed a HAT. The US wasn't always full of saggy pants gangster punks showing their ass crack as a fashion statement.
You shoudl really get out more often

Arby's is a great place to eat, not your average everyday fast food joint that sells greasy burgers and salty frys. They have great food served fresh and sliced when you order, they dont sell burgers because they are a cut above...Burgers have been done and done and done again...but no one has ever come close to doing great food like Arbys has. As far as the hat goes.... Every seen a golden arch fry in your mcdonalds bag? Better yet wendy jumping out of your Frosty? A logo is a logo, you make it up and it takes on the name of a company and then people associate that company with that logo...IE: gp, levis, dooney and Burke, KFC.....Get a clue folks. I give Arbys mt vote and my business anyday! I'M THINKING ARBYS'

You must be joking. It was more like some sort of congealed ham slime jelly rather than real roast beef or anything a human would consume. The restaurants in your area of the world must be pretty shitty if you're always thinking arbies. If you really eat this every day, you might want to save a couple dollars and just shit on a piece of squished up bread. I bet it tastes the same.

And the logo... Obvious condom... OBVIOUS.

wow, this is a very controversial thread/post/blog/topic whatever, i actually came upon this as i am a current worker of Arby's for two years now, and we are making shirts for our store team for Halloween. and as someone who has worked there for a while (I'm the longest running employee at my store other that our First Assistant Manager, and close friend of mine)started when i was 16 now I'm a shift manager. I'm sorry the creator of this topic doesn't like Arby's, and although i am Vegan, i used to like arby's (except the Beef 'n' Cheddar sandwich, gag me...) anyways, to my point. Arby's does indeed serve fresh food made only when you, the customer, order it, and we only use the most fresh products at our disposal. (if our products are non-servable, we will venture out to our local market and purchase good products, i have had to do this on more than one occasion) we, the Arby's crew, try our hardest to make our food properly, but to be kind and friendly to our customers. we practice something at arby's called "QF3" which means Quality Food, Fast, and Friendly. it we do not meet those standards at some of our chains, you might be going to a franchise store (lol), or you might just need to call and complain. because not only will they apologize, but they will also make sure that the next time you come through, that you are very well taken care of. as for our food, I'm proud that arby's cooks Roast Beef fresh everyday, along with lightly toasting every bun that gets meat or sauce on it. it is also nice to be able to go somewhere and eat something other that "Big Mac's" or "Whoppers" all the time, but to have the same kind of variety as other places. maybe a Regular Roast Beef sandwich, maybe a Market Fresh Turkey and Swiss sandwich. Curly Fries or Potato Bites. Soda, Bottled Water, or a shake. along with our many promotions that are always going on, there is always something new to enjoy. I personally am very proud of Arby's for not just the fast food joint down the block, but a fine establishment where nice people always greet you and are willing and ready to serve you hot fresh food just the way you order it.

You are all morons for even having the debate. Maybe you should interact in the real world sometime.
