Rebranding BP: Top 10 New BP Logo Ideas

Ideas submitted to for a new BP corporate logo run the expected gamut -- from the unprintable to the printable lowbrow, and from the obviously angry to the utterly despondent. Let's start with the lowbrow at No. 10.

[Editor's note: Let's face it, every aspect of the BP oil spill is of tragic proportions, so trying to rank the events in order of importance is about as useless an exercise as analyst attempts to put a price tag on BP's financial price tag. We won't attempt to rank these logos "in order," but we encourage you to submit more ideas to, or to BP or the White House. President Obama did say earlier in the oil spill crisis that anyone who has good ideas should feel free to contact him directly.]

Anyway, to start things off at No. 10, believe us when we say this logo wasn't even close to the lowest of the lowbrow, with some new BP logo offerings on that might lower the taste rating of a celebrity sex video. The much-maligned yellow and green BP star, or whatever that weird shape is supposed to be, has found itself attached to some inappropriate places in the human anatomy, to say the least.

The one point that the bathroom humor logo, and all of its sibling logos do make about the BP oil spill crisis, is that BP just can't keep a lid on worsening situation.

While the environmental impact of the BP oil spill will take years until its final toll is exacted, the economic impact to BP can be measured day-in and day-out in its incredible market losses. Some frustrated Street analysts are saying that panic has set in and BP at under $30 just isn't a justifiable selling trend. However, until someone can put an exact, definitive price tag on the worsening BP financial crisis, which they can't, it is safe to assume that BP's stock price may remain in the toilet.

Finally, it is safe to assume the image above is not the "containment dome" that BP hoped would come to represent the oil spill crisis.
