'Pornographic' tourism logo polarises opinion



They obviously haven't got much to worry about

A rebrand of the New Zealand region of Kapiti's tourism image may be tweaked to include the word "coast" amid suggestions its logo looks pornographic or like the Loch Ness monster.

The logo, part of a $NZ30,000 ($A24,000) Kapiti Coast District Council contract, polarised opinion when unveiled at a meeting last week.

It includes a 'k', shaped, and coloured green and blue, to look like a mountain and the sea. Underneath is the single word: "Kapiti".

In the public speaking session, Otaki Community Board member Jackie Elliott raised the possibility the logo could be perceived as lewd.

"I have had feedback from the public that this 'k' image with its bent leg, at the knee, is more than mildly pornographic. Perhaps the caption underneath could be 'come to Kapiti and let the earth move for you'."

Show some people a straight line and they would see a poronographic image. Guess what they obsess about.

This might as well be a Rorschach test. Like beauty, what is seen as ugly reflects more on the observer than the observed.

Or, perhaps they should tell the pansys who object to go and fuck themselves!

The more we give in to political correctness, the stronger it gets.

Don't know about pornographic, but it does suck.

This logo is just bad. Do yourselves a favor. Throw it out and start again.

I'm sorry people but I have to quote William Shatner on this...
