So many of you have wondered: “Who are the laziest designers on earth?”
I’m always happy to answer your most urgent questions.
- Laziest Designer Who Ever Lived #1: The one who designed the Cleveland Browns’ helmet.Take a look at this design failure:
Really?You first pick the ugliest color in existence – dark, dirty, burnt orange – and then, for the logo, you… you do nothing!And the Browns, being so brilliant, oh they have changed the helmet many times. Each change was the same helmet! (Search the helmet’s history and you’ll see.)It’s embarrassing to call this an NFL team. They should be playing soccer.
- Laziest Designer Who Ever Lived #2: The one who named the Grapefruit.
Really? G-r-a-p-e-f-r-u-i-t? We already had grapes. We’ve had grapes since at least Noah’s day. Everybody was happy with grapes. Grapes are great.So, we now have the buffoon who named this top fruit family embarrassment:
It’s 10 times larger than a grape. It’s not purple or red or white. It isn’t sweet like delicious grapes are. It’s got tons of seeds, unlike most grapes that have one (or none these days).
So, why did he name it a grapefruit???
Plus, we know it’s a fruit. We don’t say Apple Fruit, Banana Fruit, Cherry Fruit, or Orange Fruit.
Note: Don’t get me started on how lazy the guy was who named the orange. He easily comes in #4 in the list of Laziest Designers Who Ever Lived.
The only question that can be asked is: Which is the bigger crime? The fact he stole the name after a completely unrelated fruit, or the fact the English-speaking world accepted this term?
- Laziest Designer Who Ever Lived #3: The designer of the Japanese flag.Wow. This sure took a lot of thought:
Seriously, wouldn’t you think that a nation that designed the Nintendo and sushi could do better than a red circle on white cloth?
