“All was well as I popped up this cheery 21st birthday banner for my step-son. However, imagine my surprise upon suddenly discovering the hidden message” – Neil.

The hidden message would be something like “Hey, kid! Be glad you didn’t waste your time and money on SEGA products!”

What does the spiral symbolise here? Stars are bright and cheery, and can be easily associated with a party. But what’s a spiral? What’s happy about a spiral?

Neil also attached this picture. We think by mistake. Let us know if we should take it off the internet, Neil. Only we think it might turn out to be a bit more popular than your Dreamcast logos :(

“UNDER SECAF RONALD SEGA CHALLENGE COIN”

To some, this badge presented by Ronald M. Sega might be considered a prestigious military honour and a mark of extraordinary service. To us lot, it’d be a nice badge to put on our little rucksacks.

Submitted by reader “VMS”. Hope you found the other thing you were actually looking for.

“This guy was having a great time dressing as Sonic for a contest during the Classic Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, but he lost out to a small child dressed as Peach.”

“I mean the child was dressed as Peach, the man didn’t lose to him while dressing AS Peach. In shame he made his son wear the head.”

“I can only imagine at some point the kid is going to take the head and spike it a la Lord of Flies and sacrifice some old Genesis carts to get some great blue skies going. Words are hard.”

“These were taken at a surprisingly huge size available upon request if you want to really see the fibers” – Tenno.

Well done, Pete! You’ve graduated to the world of the normal, even getting one that doesn’t mind if you stop in the street to take photos of the signage for sending in to the internet. You give hope to everyone, Pete.

“Here’s a pic I found of Sonic being used to advertise some dodgy arcade place while I was on my honeymoon in Hong Kong. Needless to say I dragged the missus in to have a look. No Sonic to be seen anywhere. :'(” – Pete.

Has a big brain, made some nice games.
