More Cartoon Troubles

without comments

It’s not just prophets that can get you into trouble. As part of the preparations for the 2006 World Cup the German Federal Police has started a campaign to present the police force as a service-minded and accomodating organ under the motto “Wir sind mit Sicherheit dabei” (approximately “We’ll get you there safely”).

The problem? The Police commissioned a logo consisting of a classic black-and-white football wearing a police cap and balancing a globe on one finger.

The thing is that depending on your point of reference the black patch on the football could be interpreted as a nose or as … well … something usually associated with a certain infamous figure in German political history.

The official mascot of the World Cup is a silly looking lion named Goleo which can only offend people with taste.
