(Newser) – Well, it looks like the internet will have to find something new to make juvenile sex jokes about. Raw Story reports a day after the Trump campaign unveiled a Trump/Pence logo that was widely mocked for simultaneously evoking both toilet paper and sexual intercourse, the offending logo is no more. The interlocking T and P no longer appear on the websites for the Trump campaign or Republican National Committee. USA Today points out the new logo also didn't appear anywhere on stage during Trump's Saturday press conference with Pence. Political commentator David Axelrod tweets that it “seems the joint logo rolled out yesterday to the great amusement of many has been axed.”

NBC News reporter Ali Vitali tweets the Trump campaign sent out a newer new logo with a fundraising email Saturday. The newest new logo is simply the names Trump and Pence without the original's TP flag design. It's unclear whether what Raw Story characterizes as a "day of ridicule" had anything to do with the replacement of the logo. But CNET reports it's evidence that the "chattering, battering hordes" of Twitter can have some small effect on presidential campaigns. Either way, we'll always have this NSFW GIF from Full Frontal With Samantha Bee. (Read more graphic design stories.)
