    it’s a snowman with a boner!

    Best. Government response. Ever.

  3. scottfree says:

    It’s funnier if you consider the right hand to be using the back door.

  4. Silva says:

    I’m pretty sure a lot of people call them just that, so it’s appropriate

  5. Kyle Goetz says:

    Perhaps it’s my Buddhist nature or my Asian background, but I’ve always thought OGC was a monk praying with one hand, not someone fapping.

  7. hedztalez says:

    “and is not inappropriate to an organisation that’s looking to have a firm grip on government spend!”

    If thats what they’re calling it now. Hey baby, touch my government spending….yeah that’s nice.

    as predicted by dinosaur comics:

    hmmm … as the designer of this logo three years ago:

    I feel that a) I’ve been ripped off and that b) I wish I’d spotted the masturbating snowman before.

    OGC is master of its domain.

    @1 Mintphresh: AKA Snowbone.

    Who stands like that?

  12. Ned613 says:

    This is going to get a lot of mileage on the Internet. Something tells me they will redesign it in a few months after it makes several cicuits of the globe.

  13. Earth Man says:

    @#4 Kyle: What is the sound of one hand fapping?

  14. donopolis says:

    Firm grip on spend indeed….

    and spend is sooo slippery.

    not only does it make you go blind, but apparently it gives you rickets, too!

  16. Xopher says:

    Kyle 4: I’m not Buddhist or Asian, and I saw it the same way you did. The single hand, edge on, held upright at the bottom of the chest, yes? Took me a few seconds to see the wankery inherent in the system (“help! I’m bein’ repressed!”).

  17. Jake0748 says:

    Wow, on first look I thought it was a guy flipping the bird. But now I can see it the other way too. I guess it’s like that picture where you either see two faces or a vase, and can switch back and forth.

  18. jimh says:

    @#4: That’s a pretty low gassho.

    I think the broad, even strokes of the sans serif face combined with the vigorous kerning make this logotype a polished example of visual identity that both grabs the viewer and sticks in the public’s memory.

    So OGC stands for Onanist Gratification Commission?

  20. anniel says:

    check it out animated in this Maryland Terps thread!

  21. French Blue says:

    Very funny, and the Govt wankers deserve it – but this is also utterly tragic graphic design. It’s irredeemably awful, totally lacking in any perceptible thought, style, skill, wit…still, it’s said that clients get the work they deserve.

  22. pepsi_max2k says:

    not the only thing they’ve got a firm grip on! hehehehe….

  23. creative intuition says:

    Its not dirty, you guys just have dirty minds. It could be a monk, a cop aiming a gun at a robber, a snowman with a boner, a snake, or someone sitting playing a small flute. Just like the ink blot tests the picture is a reflection of you not of the letters.

  24. highjumpman says:

    Actually, it’s two people seen from above, with the left one holding the right one’s…

  25. arkizzle says:


    That was their joke.

  26. Takuan says:

    please….I call it making love with someone I care about

  27. doctorpsycho1960 says:

    Davidhorn, it would appear that in the course of wanking, your snowman dropped his butt plug.

  28. Antinous says:

    With your eight tentacles, you must be able to give yourself quite a reacharound.

  29. jimh says:

    playing a small flute heh heh heh
