Logo Gets Excited, Rubs One Out


This, by far, is the best logo fuck up ever. Even better than that pedophilic one from that pediatric center. While the goof has been found out and may (or may not) be corrected, that didn't stop employees of the UK's Office of Government Commerce from having a laugh over it. Flip the logo 90 degrees to the right and you'll understand the gaff.

Oddly and with perfect British wit, an OGC spokesman defended the logo: "The proposed version, which you have sent over, has been shared with staff, and is now going through final technical stages. It is true that it caused a few titters among some staff when viewed on its side, but on consideration we concluded that the effect was generic to the particular combination of the letters 'OGC' - and is not inappropriate to an organization that's looking to have a firm grip on government spend!"

Oh my god that's hilarious. I really thought the pedophile one was bad, but this is just amazingly poor.

What's just as embarrassing is that originally I thought the logo was a blatant rip off of The OC logo. Great find!

Whomever came up with that design is a real jerk-off.

Or some horrible art director who just gets off on this kind of thing...

It must be the class of reader who thinks of shit like that - who the hell is going to flip the logo?

David: NO ONE will flip this logo just for the hell of it. But that's not the point.

PLENTY people will happen to see it sideways and there will be no mistaking the image. Take those mousepads. How long before someone sees that sitting on a desk, vertically?

Better hope that individual doesn't have a mouthful of anything when that happens.

Sure, Pat! Someone could catch a glimpse of this logo sideways on their desk...if they're lying on it, masturbating.

Of course, they'd have an ironic chuckle--followed by a wave of shame. Hot, filthy shame.

Oh yes, it'll never be seen sideways because the chances of them ever having a horizontal banner or stationery are, oh, right, pretty good actually.

They really pulled a boner with that design.
