Olympic Logo Unveiled...and it's a mess.

This is what approximately $800K will get you by way of London designers.

I stared at that picture for a good minute or so before reading the article, trying to figure out what the hell it was supposed to be.

Oh. "2012" with the Olympic rings in the "0"? If you say so. I see scribbles.

Considering how much money the city hopes to rake in with merchandise sales, you'd think they'd listen to the 10,000 people who signed a petition in the FIRST DAY telling them to change that ugly logo.

I'm not even a designer, and I KNOW I could do better than that. Gimme $800K...I wanna try my hand at it.

When I saw it, my first thought was that it was a gay jigsaw puzzle.

Literally gay? Because that would be HI-larious.

My God...I could make it out of Hillary heads and it would be more creative than that mess. I wouldn't hang it on my refrigerator even if my own kid made it. In fact, if my kid could only produce artwork of that quality, I'd send him to bed with no dinner.

I almost snorted iced tea OUT OF MY NOSE onto my computer at the thought of you making the Olympic Logo out of Hilary heads.

I pretty much think you should do it.
