    Default London's 2012 Olympic Logo


    The dramatic new logo for the 2012 Olympics has been unveiled in the most significant move since London won the race to host the Games.

    Organisers have hailed it as dynamic and vibrant, but other people have said it resembles a "toileting monkey", a "broken swastika" or "a blowjob".

    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.Ē -- Gen. George S. Patton

    I agree. I lived through the 80s once already. Why is all this stupid nostalgia making me live through it again?

    I hate pink, pointy shoes, and those tops girls wear that make them look pregnant. All that's missing now is the screaming high moussed-up bangs that add five inches to a woman's height.

    Do the designers of these logos forget what it means to be timeless and classy?

    In my opinion no other city can match London's design houses in terms of creativity, but this is terrible. The logo for the bid was great. This one is shite.
    Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.

    The only thing I can figure is that it's some abstract take on the 5 continents.

    Upon further review, i believe it is obvious.
