Airbnb, the widely popular home and room rental community, has a very awkward new logo [1]. It's called Bélo [2], and it's supposed to be the universal symbol of belonging. We won't disagree that it's a beautiful idea — but let's be real: the company's new identity looks like a mashup of, um, human genitalia (here's a really NSFW post [3] for those interested).

The dark and twisted Internet recognized this rebranding disaster immediately and responded with some downright hilarious mashups. Read on for things that strikingly resemble Airbnb's new upside-down heart logo. Don't worry: we kept this post safe for, er, public eyes.
