      What do you see when you look at the image above? Do you see a D and a B neatly placed together so as to form the initials of the Dirty Bird fried chicken brand? Or is it perhaps just a drawing of a rooster? Or, alternatively, do you see a pair of hairy testicles and a penis, which appears to be spraying orange sperm directly upwards in a thick, viscous stream? Yeah, you and a lot of other people.

      Whatever your personal interpretation, the somewhat phallic design is causing a bit of a stir in the Welsh city of Cardiff, where it's displayed across the van of fried chicken street food vendors Dirty Bird.

      "I was queuing up with my two young sons when I looked at the logo and realized what it represents," a customer named Abigail Griffiths told Wales Online. "It is not the sort of thing that should be on display around children."

      "The food was finger-licking good, but when I saw the logo I was a bit shocked," Denise Leyshon, 43, added. "I would still come back for seconds."

      But maybe the whole thing is an innocent mistake. When asked about the logo looking a bit like a dick and balls, Dirty Bird owner Neil Young said that the company "never really thought about it like that."

      "Our designer created a D and B for 'dirty bird,' then pushed them together to make a cockerel," he said.
