Councillors in sex shop mishap

25 February 2014

Pendle / LoveHoney Those blessed souls at Pendle council have had to scrap their brand new logo, as it looks a bit too similar to that of a sex shop.

The branding for the Lancashire borough was drawn up by a local councillor, but was deemed too similar to that of Lovehoney - the sexual happiness people (aka a drop-in centre for all your lube and gag treats).

After spending a whole £3,000 on the project - and wasting no end of councillors valuable time - they insisted that no taxpayer's money was wasted on it [Not that councils find a myriad of other ways to waste our precious money, eh? - Ed.]

Upon seeing the results, Councillor Ann Kerrigan told her colleagues: "It wouldn’t do much for Pendle and I don’t think we should be associating our logo with this kind of thing."

They should've kept the symbol as both symbols represent a cavalcade of spectacular tools.

    No, it just needs scrapping because it's yet another clichéd swoosh logo.

    They don't look similar, strange that, they person who thought of the similarity must have just brought something from lovehoney. And £3000 for a logo is nothing, think how much they spent on the london 2012 logo was it 0.4 million?

    Wrong kind of milky creaminess - Looks more like the logo Wall's Ice Cream than the sex shop logo

What do you think?
