On the subject of ill-advised logos, here’s one that’s been around for a while and never fails to impress foreigners visiting here, whilst most Czechs seem blithely unruffled by its presence in their kitchen. This dapper fellow has been used to promote quality meat products (what else?) since 1917. Look at the cock-gorging fool! Given the potential messiness of the operation he seems rather too well dressed to be performing fellatio with such terrifying relish, but those were the heady days of anticipation of Czechoslovak independence and perhaps his creators thought he should be afforded such luxuries. Almost a century old now and still going strong. Will the mullet also survive to mark its centenary in these parts?
