    Can`t read half of them, and that "Krank" one doesn`t look like one

    I love that the IAB link says "brain-numbing" while the article itself describes them as "amazing".

    I`m with IAB on this one.

    It has to be readable in the first place to be an ambigram. Most of these are disqualified.

    All of those look horrible. And all for the lame effect of being read the same upside down. It would look better if they didn`t do that.

    Angelmassb, it`s 1984.

    Most of these were terrible, some weren`t even ambigrams.

    Angel, yes it`s supposed to say 1984. Whoever rated this over a 1 should be shot. These are pathetic.

    "All of those look horrible. "

    no, some of those were interesting and wisely done, but most of them were trying WAY too hard, I could hardly read half of them.

    the clean/dirty almost pulled it off except how off-set the `y` was

    Yeah some of them were too difficult to read, but I thought Shark Attack (3) was pretty cool.

    The idea of an ambigram is to be able to read it...

    I couldn`t read over half of those.
    The person who made the collection should have subtitled them.

    The one on the right in number six is not an ambigram, it`s a foreground/background relationship

    It kinda defeats the whole purpose if no one can read it. I like the Princess Bride (in the comments, not the link) because it is very easy, but I think the absolute most impressive one was the one on the link that said "City of Brotherly Love: Philadelphia."

    Meh.

    If it isn`t immediately legible without hints, it`s not an ambigram.

    IAB wrote "bnrain-numbing" when it in fact meant "illegible".
    The only good amibigram is a legible ambigram.

    I`ve seen loads of ambigrams and now I just decide if I like them based on if they look cool as there are so few that are actually legible. :|
