The two that come to my mind:

Thing one, because it's such a loaded symbol. It means such different things to different people. For some it's a symbol of hate and oppression and dehumanization, while for others it's a source of pride.

And thing two, because it's three goddam circles. How in the name of Christ is that a mouse? It isn't, but we can recognize it as such immediately. Both trip me out.
