It was inevitable really. The much maligned new Vancouver logo has taken to Twitter to defend itself.

The spoof Twitter account at @covlogo was launched on Saturday, three days after the new Gotham font logo, which cost $8,000, was revealed.

In its first tweet, the poor logo explained that he had “birthed himself”, because the official City of Vancouver Twitter account had not yet adopted the new logo.

The City has said the new logo was designed with social media in mind, to make the city’s brand easier to read on a small screen. The new logo seems to disagree.

Pretty disturbingly, the new logo refers to Mayor Gregor Robertson as “Dad.”

And it would appear the new logo believes Coun. Andrea Reimer is his mother.

He’s also certainly not afraid to acknowledge his heritage.

Although the poor little guy’s future is uncertain…

And this doesn’t look good for the family relationship…
