A giant fluffy red and white condom with a bobble on it. Very Xmassy. But definitely not very Hannukahrry or Kwannzary.

I was wondering when someone was going to bring this up in this forum. Yes, it's a Santa hat.

The Admininstrators worked hard to make the logo more seasonal.

It might be mistaken for dandruff.

Default Re: Whats that over the X&P?

this is offensive, Christianity is the only religion represented I demand this is corrected immediatly

We need the star of David over the o in .com to represent Hanuka and the Jewish religion

We need all of the letters in British Expats to be Black to represent Kwanza

An aeroplane flying into the whole thing to represent Ramadam and the Muslim religion

A bottle of Riocha where the first i is for Manc who prays to the God of wine

Fire and Brimstone under the logo to represent where non beleivers are going to go when they are dead

The wind blowing through the logo to represent Woden the Norse God of Wind and Norse Gods

A witches hat over the M in .com to represent the witch religion of Wicken

A fukin' looney with pregnant bird (but not by him because he's gay) to represent Scientology)

A laurel around the B to represent Roman Gods and some Greek Gods.

Put a little head on the top part of the B and put a belly button in the bottom part of the B to represent Buddha

Depending on the tribe we need Gods to represent the Indians, most thought that there was God of Rain so we can have rain, close to the woden

Draw some pschycodelic shit for the Church of the poisen mind

Lets not offend anyone, lets put a retarded kid in there just in case so we dont offend the disabled

I think we have covered everyone

I recommend renaming to British/English/Welsh/Scottish/None-of-the-above Expats to give a group hug to all and any who don't wish to consider themselves generalised British. Some others aren't part of Britain, but may include themselves in None-of-the-above if they see fit. We should really also consider adding a category for those who weren't British, gained British citizenship and expat'd themselves away again.

It must be in English, Welsh, French, German, Urdu, Scottish and Esperanto to make sure no-one offended because it solely in English, the official language of the British

And all descriptors should be arranged randomly around a randomly revolving circle to prevent unintentional suggestion of superiority of one descriptor over another.
