Other proposals I have:
- The obvious Monty Python reference with a foot/boot descending on a
chip would be funny and be totally connected to the name. Using a boot
would circumvent any possible trademark issues.
- A boot kicking a chip together with a slogan like "Kicking chips into
speedy operation" or somesuch.
- A shark (fast and scary) with a chip on its fin or a chip in its mouth
with the chip legs replacing shark teeth.
