The Huffington Post reports:
The Republican National Committee unveiled its official logo for next year’s presidential convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday, and the unusual design has some people saying “ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.”
Some people thought the logo looked like an elephant in front of an octopus. Others saw a mind flayer from the hit Netflix show “Stranger Things.”
Still others thought it looked like the logo for Hydra, a terrorist group in the Marvel Universe. And many saw Cthulhu, one of the dreaded Great Old Ones from the tales of early 20th-century horror author H.P. Lovecraft.
Bold of them to just straight up put Cthulhu behind the elephant now https://t.co/UBJ1exhER1

Reminds me more of Spectre from James Bond than Hydra. pic.twitter.com/6cqbinqePY
