For This Womens Day We Transformed 8 Iconic Brand Logos Into Female Versions

Many household brands that we’ve come to know and love over the years have cemented their place in our home. Mostly thanks to the addition of a quirky mascot. A defining, relatable character that champions the brand, a familiar face on the shopping aisles of the supermarket – all designed to catch and hold your attention.

Generally, you might not give a brand mascot much thought, but when you look past all the bright colors and charisma, there’s one thing that seems to be quite apparent about the bigger picture – where are all the women at?!

A Young Chicago Chef Pursues Wood-Fired Perfection

The James Beard Awards are often referred to as the "Oscars of the food world," and while Chicago chef Erling Wu-Bower has been nominated for three of them, he's lost all three.

"I'm like Susan Lucci!" he jokes, referring to the soap opera star who didn't pick up her first Emmy until she'd earned her 19th nomination.

Getting odd in the kitchen with the ‘Bob’s Burgers’ cookbook

When I first started Bobs Burgersthe animated Fox comedy about a weird and loving family who owned a struggling burger restaurant at the Jersey shorea couple of years ago, I had a couple of thoughts. One, it was consistently funnier than I ever expected it to be. Two, I wanted one of those crazy Burgers of the Day.

Rarely shown but always named (except for that one episode where they temporarily disappeared), the Burger of the Day is one of the shows running gags. The nameswhich are almost always food punsappear on the chalkboard hanging near the cash register in every episode just like the revolving owners of the building next to Bobs Burgers and the rat vans in the opening sequence. The burger names are punchy, cheesy, the puns have the right amount of dad-level humor, and they can get...
