BBC shows Olympic logo the door
More reader-generated merriment
It might not be as unpleasantly suggestive as the Goatse-inspired effort offered yesterday by one wag on the BBC's website, but another reader-generated suggestion as to how the new 2012 Olympic logo might be improved just about sums up public reaction to what is now officially known as the "Lisa Simpson bj graphic":
According to the Beeb, "Matt Le Gresley sent us this running man". Hmmm, not so much running, but rapidly exiting - hopefully never to return. ®
The Beeb has a couple more nicely-done comments on the logo fiasco in this second gallery. We particularly like the "cash down the drain" effort.
Oh yes, and ta very much to one of our readers, who wishes to remain anonymous, for forwarding what must be the final word on this sorry affair:
Emma. You're wrong.
By your logic, child abuse images are ok if the victim is now old enough, regardless of how old they were at the time.
How can relating an image to one of an 8 year old performing a sex act NOT be related to child abuse?
Cartoon, artistic and computer generated representations of abusive activities are being used to try and circumvent the law regarding such things. Just because these graphic images are not of real people does not make them acceptable.
what do it mean?
forget all you lot that seem to thinkm you can see blowjobs, n afro men. i see the word SHIT. why is that word there? n what does it resemble? the city we live in is shit? n to make a logpo out o it. i do rate it but i dont see noone else has picked up on it!
Um, The Simpsons is a CARTOON, it is not real. I was 8 when it started and am 26 now.. if Lisa Simpson was real she would be about my age now.
People commenting on the fact they think the logo looks like Lisa Simpson giving head is in no way related to child abuse. It is scary that you are thinknig that way.
