THE official story is that there never was a Cornucopia embedded within the Fruit of the Loom logo and not even Google is buying it. There are probably millions of people who will back me up on this one. We wouldn’t have the faintest clue what a Cornucopia is if it weren’t for Fruit of the Loom. For the rest of you who proudly happen to rise above our “bad memory”, it’s a tabletop ornament container shaped like a goat’s horn. People used to cram fruit into it, mostly for display. Seeing as how this is underwear we’re dealing with, try not to blush when I tell you that a Cornucopia is the horn of plenty, a symbol that stands for abundance and nourishment. It doesn’t take a sex therapist to figure out what the fruit is a stand-in for, but I digress. It’s missing. An important appendage on the logo, that is. And quite suddenly Fruit of the Loom feels, well, emptier.
The Fruit of the Loom is the latest update to my Mandela Effect research paper. You can give it a read in the PDF below.
