Gee, What Do You Think Attracted Obama to This Ice Cream Shop?

From Doug, with thanks to Will.

Yesterday, President Obama was photographed outside the Mount Desert Island Ice Cream shop in Bay Harbor, Maine:
Notice anything familiar about their logo?
It’s pretty much the same thing as the “black power” logo, except with a spoon
Here’s a review of the shop from 2008:
A sign outside Mount Desert Island Ice Cream in downtown Bar Harbor features a familiar emblem in an unfamiliar way. The logo of the black power movement — a raised fist — clenches a spoon.
Shop owner Linda Parker thinks the tongue-in-cheek sign adds some spice to typically bovine advertisements.
“Everyone has seen enough cows in the hillside,” she says.

That product is WELL known.
They take vanilla, and other flavors and squish fresh fruit into it.

Awesome stuff.

Bar Harbor (not Bay)
This is just plain stupid. Take it from a former ice cream business owner.... the sign has no where near the meaning you are trying to append to it!
