    I just realized something about the name Massive Black

    The company's name is Massive Black.

    The logo is a cock. A black cock really.

    So, Massive Black = Massive Black Cock?

    I thought that was funny.

    I think it's pure coincidence. I wouldn't imagine them come up with something so vulgar!

    Hahaha, I thought someone must have figured it out already. I'm sure it was intentional:p

    Yeah, El Coro actually mentions it in a Bobby Chiu interview. That's when I realized. xD

    I think they did it to spice up the search results people get when looking for their work.

    Heh yeah people tend to forget that a cock is a male rooster (though for some reason I easily remember that a donkey is a jackass), which threw me off when a friend said that Mel Gibson voiced a cock in Chicken Run.

    Hmm, and now Mel is completely acting like a cock. Come to think of it, he's being a real jackass now too.

    I thought i had read that somewhere that they actually wanted to call it massive black cock (please don't hurt me, i am being honest when i say that i think i read t somewhere) but they thought that they would not really get away with it so they shortened it and did it as a logo.

    At the end of our course we had to pick an animal that we identified with in some way to be part of our end of year show and when this rather strict teacher, who was in charge of getting the students to give her the animal they were thinking and making sure there were no doubles, asked a very very shy asian student - well i thought she was going to seriously blow. The poor girl obviously knew the name of the animal that she chose, a rooster, as a cock. When she said it the teacher almost could not get out the words "excuse me?" out. The student got flustered and repeated the word. LOL freaking funniest thing i saw but i quickly jumped in and bridged the gap of understanding. The funniest thing was when the teacher understood and finally looked down at the paper to write it she actually said "i don't think i can even write that word now!" HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
