Ol’ Leo and Michael, where art thou?

Organisers of the LOL (London Olympics Logo), this is such a nice gesture. No. Really. You people have stood by your principles and no words can be enough to express the enormous appreciation I feel for you guys. I mean, many talk about how mentally retarded children should be encouraged to be a part of the international community and how they shouldn’t really be downtrodden because of no fault of theirs. Still, not many stand up and do something of note about it. But you fine people. You’ve just accepted and showcased the logo for the London Olympics 2012, which I can see has been designed by mentally challenged 5 yr olds. Wonderful guys. I really hope London 2012 turns out to be a mega success.


Whaat? No? This wasn’t by such people? Oh! My apologies. Maybe a 3 year old with a pink crayon then? No? A senile old gentleman who’s contributed much to charity perhaps? A unique amalgam of people from different countries and races thumb-printing with closed eyes? No? You have me caught there guys! Pray, tell me, who, what and where.

You what? You paid £400,000 for getting this designed. You mean, with real, hard, green paper? You sure it’s not anything to do with monopoly chips or April Fool? And you say a group of creative professionals worked on it for months? And you say you’re bloody proud of it and freaking love it?

All this just when the ICC is attempting to rewrite history :

It had its controversies and detractors, but ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 will go down in history as one of the most memorable World Cups ever.” ~ The World Cup organising committee’s final World Cup newsletter.
The organisation of [the 2007 World Cup] was the best I have seen.” ~ Ehsan Mani.

Update :
Olympics logo in epilepsy controversy.
Epileptic fits or fits of uncontrollable laughter?

  3. dude, i saw this logo a couple of days back and thinkin the same thing… ut i can understand- whenu push creativity to its extreme it does a full turn and peeps out of the sewer!i would have called that a disgustingly distorted jig-saw with colors to blind the un-blind… anyways, the first time i looked in i thought there was some message (it has an L and an R for sure…) pardon me for my ignorance. is there any (in which case the logo is still shit) or is it just random (making the logo shitty-shit)
