Census Logo es Loco
I was playing around with some of the figures at census.gov today (yes, that's how I spend my free time, don't laugh) and I came across the following logo:
I can't help but wonder, why in the world did they choose this strange coloration pattern? Is it some sort of top-secret code? Will the men in black show up at my house if I try to crack it?
I checked the groups of letters against the Internet Anagram Server and found that the light-colored letters ("seura") can be rearranged to spell:
The dark-colored letters ("ucnssbueu") can be juxtaposed to spell out:
UN CUBES US
CUBS SUE UN
CUE US SNUB
CUE US BUNS
Is it really all A RUSE? Is the Census Bureau making a political statement about the UN? Are they secretly telling the Chicago Cubs that they should sue the UN? Was Bartman a secret UN operative?
Inquiring minds want to know!

|perhaps the answer lies in what the letters COULD HAVE spelled out if the bureau chose to sanely color every-other letter. In that case, "ucnubra" might have spelled out "CUBA RUN." Does the US-Cuba policy not allow for the support of anagrams that spell out names of communist countries? What if those anagrams start in Cuba but reach dry land? Don't we then have to give them asylum?
