Logo: In the eye of the, ahem, be-holder

It's hard to see anything offensive about this straight-up new logotype for the British Office of Government Commerce. But when presented to the agency's employees, a few of them, upon viewing it with a 90-degree head-tilt laughed at its obscenity. Huh? When I look, I guess I can see someone flipping the bird, but a few pervs in the crowd saw a man holding his, er, willy.

Writes The Register:
“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.”
