Department of Innovation logo is a perfect metaphor for government
Have you figured it out yet? How hilariously perfect this logo is for any government agency, but when it's used for the Smithsonian's blog called Department of Innovation, it approaches the sublime?
Three gears interlocked in this configuration cannot turn at all. Much like the government itself, they are locked in position, unable to do anything useful. Plus, the spacing of the teeth on the smaller gears is way off. Even if they could turn, you wouldn't get more than a few degrees of rotation before the machine chewed itself to pieces....heh heh.....perfect!
