Why are there more chocolate stains on my clothes now than there were when I dropped them off?

The logo of a Manhattan cleaning company:


And the logo of one of Hershey's various brands:


I've passed the storefront of this cleaners before, and have always wondered at what exact point the decision to copy the candy bar logo took place. Did they pick the name Symphony first, and then decide, "You know what, someone has already figured out a font in which that word looks good; let's just go with that," or were they wandering the candy aisle looking for inspiration? "How about '5th Avenue'?" "Well, that's pretty good, but we're not located on 5th Avenue. Just use the one next to it."

When I read the subject line, my first thought was that you should sue for $67 million.

Someone's gonna sue for a lot of money, anyway.

But wait! Maybe we're making an unfounded assumption... perhaps it is the cleaners who are being maligned here.

There's never enough starch in a Symphony bar, anyway.

I don't see it.

I mean, come on. The S and the y aren't even touching! It's completely different!

This has been bugging me for years. I think there needs to be an investigation.

My Rookledge's is, alas, not easily available. What is that? It's kind of like Ballantines Script but not quite....
