UK Office of Government Commerce new logo is for wankers

Here's another one for you lot who love to giggle at phallic logos.

This is the new logo for the UK Office of Government Commerce.

This is the logo turned 90 degrees

The Register says that a spokesman gamely explained:

"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 organisation that's looking to have a firm grip on government spend!"

    If you read the comments on the original article, you'll find one referencing the animated GIF version for anyone who can't quite see what the wanker headline is all about.

    Hope the person posting that has loads of bandwidth!
