Councillors in sex shop mishap
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.
