What the flick?

I read this on the Globe and Mail today...

The Ontario government's decision to help fund an edgy ad campaign against global warming is a “flicking” disgrace that shows a shocking lack of judgement, the opposition charged Wednesday.

The campaign against climate change — launched Wednesday by Environment Minister Laurel Broten and billionaire Richard Branson — encourages youth to “FLICK OFF.”

But then it goes on...

The slogan's font is clearly designed to make flick look like a four-letter-word. New Democrat Peter Kormos reacted by saying it “blows his flicking mind” how Ms. Broten could be involved with the campaign, which includes stickers and T-shirts.

Now look at the picture...

I don't know, they could have done this in so many other -tasteful- ways...

By the way, the people in the picture are Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group of Companies, and Ontario Environment Minister Laurel Broten.

I don't really know what to say... flick.
