Apart from my Alembic bass I also own a black Alembic hoody sweater which I love and end up wearing a lot in this currently cold European winter weather.

When the other day I came to work wearing this my precious black Alembic hoody, a (non-musician) colleague saw me from across the room and was looking at the logo on my sweater, partly obscured by the occasional folds, reading:

"bulimic? Is that what it says?"

After we laughed a round he explained to me how even the design seemed to make sense in this context, as the hand looks like reaching down into a big round throat with rays "evolving from it"...

Oh well, this sweater is size XL and I inside probably qualify for an even bigger size. It should have been pretty obvious that this logo was NOT about "bulimic".

Anyway, I thought it was funny enough to share with the forum. Any adults here, by the way, wearing Alembic hoodies size S or XS? Curious...

I laughed so hard I almost choked on this bag of cookies I'm eating.
