Weird Bianchi Decal

Just got this frame, it's in beautiful shape. Under a 2007 City of Madison bike register decal I find the "100% CHICK DESIGNED" decal, which is under the factory clear coat, just like all the other Bianchi decals. Now, I am guessing that the frame was not made in Italy (Japan?). I have never seen the like of it on any other Bianchi. I also think, in today's world, that the decal would be considered offensive to many women. Has anyone seen this decal on a Bianchi before?

Sky Yeager used to work at Bianchi and had a good deal of involvement in designing and specking the US market bikes, hence the sticker.

Yeah, you can find it on Bianchi Pistas of the era too. More info about Sky: https://cyclingtips.com/2017/05/meet...f-other-bikes/
