I know it's not a joke in the sense of a gag with a punchline, but I found an amusing notice in my local free newspaper and I thought I'd share it here. The additions are, of course, my own.

The aussie ISP with arguably the worst reputation is called 'Dodo'.

Naming your company after a bird best known for being really stupid and extinct, Sheer Marketing Genius.

Then there's the logo for the New Zealand Air Force.

That little critter in the middle is a Kiwi, a nearly-extinct flightless bird.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Ypsilanti Michigan has their own wireless network called Wireless Ypsi. It's a small, grass-roots project put together by a couple of guys that thought it'd be a good idea. It seems to work pretty well, but their choice of logo is, well... humorous. To fully understand, first you must understand the infamous Ypsilanti Water Tower.

Needless to say, Wireless Ypsi's logo is an homage to the infamous structure...
