I think it's a TOAST reference? Which I'm not entirely sure even is, but I know it's related to ARG?

That's a logic program, which works for argument tech (arg tech), which I guess works as a pun, but it's not an ARG. Granted I think there are other icons which are essentially puns. I don't remember which ones though...

Headscratchers used to be called "It just bugs me," and had an actual bug as their symbol.

Anyways is the reason ARG's icon is a loaf of bread due to the pun on the TOAST system being ARG tech?

Well from that thread I found that it was a potato at one point (based on the portal 2 ARG), but it certainly isn't one anymore.

The only thing I can think of is that ARGs are composed of clues or "breadcrumbs" that add up to a bigger picture.


How well does it match the trope?
