It makes sense to me to have one for letterheads and official documents 
and a couple funkier ones for web use.

However, the new suggested version is not suitable for official use IMO.

Shouldn't we have something that can be easily scaled without loosing 
clarity. For example the lad logo scales very well even though it is a 
bit abstract for some people.

I am working on something now that I'll submit later today.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
