El Reg obtains snap of OGC logo reveal

Shock image of stunned staff

LogoWatch NSFW Hot on the heels of our exclusive and shock exposé earlier this week into the new Office of Government Commerce logo, we're delighted to present this afternoon a quite remarkable image of the moment at which London design outfit FHD revealed the revised brand frontage to the HM Treasury tentacle's staff:

The moment at which the OGC's new logo was unveiled

Concerned readers should note that the three OGC foot soldiers seen here paralysed by uncontrollable laughter have now made a full recovery.

Sadly, Pippa and Hanna of the Strategy Boutique, who made the presentation, were detained by the armed operative on the right under the Prevention Of Spunking Taxpayers' Money On Blokes Cracking One Off Logos Act (1984) and are currently undergoing an intensive, and likely illegal, deprogramming regime at a secret government location designed to make them physically sick at the sound of whalesong or even the faintest whiff of joss-sticks.

The OGC, meanwhile, has yet to do the decent thing and protect innocent kiddies from its onanistic filth by pulling the logo and replacing it with something which doesn't promote the joys of dancing with the one-eyed sailor. Watch this space. ®
