An utterly trivial observation

In one of those 'actually looking properly at something for the first time' moments, I've just noticed that the Microsoft Excel logo contains both an X and an L. Up until now, I'd always just thought it was an X with a weird twiddly bit in the bottom right-hand corner.

Okay.....
Cool. I just looked at the Outlook one and realised it's not a clock at all, it is a small L in a big O :)

Anyone know what the "pacman eating a sandwich" Powerpoint icon is going on about?

Re: Okay.....
I think it's just a pie chart and some text - no cunning hidden letters :(

But I'd not thought of Outlook being O & L before...

Eighteen years ago, I was disabused of the notion that the Montreal Expos logo:
It's the Expos logo, take my word for it.
consisted of "elb" rather than "M."

Less than a year ago, I realized the "e" (for "Expos") really is there.

Deleted and reposted because my first-string image host was not being co-operative.
