SA news outlet deploys sh*t London Olympics logo

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

LogoWatch It's a hearty round of applause today for News24.com, self-trumpeted as "Southern Africa and Africa's premier online news resource", which has decided it doesn't much like the London Olympic logo:

News24.com story with Olympic logo spelling "SHIT"

Regarding just where the shit logo favoured by our South African cousins came from, Reg readers spotted something similar way back in 2007, as you can see right here. ®
