Ed Balls Has A Favicon

Hearing a rumour that the Schools Secretary can't spell - which turned out to be true - I ventured over to Ed Balls's website.

It's a fairly standard affair, with the exception of two things that had me giggling. The first being the image of him in the banner - windswept, holding a mug and yelling at someone in the distance. The second is that he has a favicon - that little image that says 'ED' on the left of the address bar. Favicons only really work when they are identifiable logos; see the Twitter one in the first link above, or the Telegraph T as another example. But 'ED'? There's something slightly nerdy about it; like monogramming your underpants, or something.
