Story about Menu Icon
Don’t let these three simple bars fool you—our free menu icons are in high demand. The famous menu icon project was created by internationally renowned user interface designer Jørg Smellssonn. Each icon actually originates as an individually hand-carved block of cheese from a recipe passed down through generations of his family, scanned in 3D in Smellssonn’s underwater design lab, refined by a team of overpaidnerds in Silicon Valley, and then deposited on our worldwide network of fiber-linked servers just for you to download quickly. Smellssonn's team then eats each cheese sculpture and immediately deletes each icon file as soon as it is successfully downloaded, ensuring that each of the menu icons remain unique.

So the next time you are bored out of your wits, just grab a random menu and take a hard look at it. The fro-yo permutations are endless!
