It’s time some of the excellent submissions to the “I [shape] X” entry got their own post. The selections displayed here do not cover all the comments on that post, as some of the images have become elusive. Plays on the original heart make an appearance, in addition to symbols that don’t have a Unicode representation, like a food cart. There’s also one without any symbol at all, calling the reader to supply his or her own.
I [food cart] street food:
I [raindrop] Seattle:
I [dice] Las Vegas:
I [heart heart heart] polygamy:
I [?] Unicode:
I [glove] MJ:
I [ ] organ donation:
I [tomato] my farmer:
I [foot] Madlibs:
I wish I could find an image, because this is a good one. I remember seeing a t-shirt for sale in 2004 at the Traverse City (Michigan) Cherry Festival. The shirt used a picture of a cherry to say “I (cherry)-sh TC” – “love” became “cherish” in an almost perfect blend of word- and picture-play.

The worst one I saw was the I NY. Came out about a year after 9/11.
