SA news outlet deploys sh*t London Olympics logo
Forget the Lisa Simpson BJ, this really sucks
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:
When the original logo (right) was unveiled to much whalesong back in 2007, notables described it as "an invitation and an inspiration" and "an early indication of the dynamism, modernity and inclusiveness with which London 2012 will leave its Olympic mark".
In fact, insisted a horrified netosphere, it represents Lisa Simpson administering a sporty blowjob, and once you've got that image lodged in your brain, it's difficult to shift.
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. ®
Thanks to Michael Pitman for the tip-off.
It sure is shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiat.
Why is that 2012 Olympics logo still in use?
It's like Gordon Brown. Everyone hates it. Everyone knows it's shit. Everyone knows everyone else knows it's shit. Yet it's still there and we still let it represent us. WTF?
London is walking around with "TWAT" written on its forehead.
one question though what is the difference between "Southern Africa and Africa's premier online news resource". Funny i would have thought Southern Africa counted as part of Africa?
Great call on the logo though... And at least having the "sh*t" logo on your computer wont see you banged up on possession of images involving indecent underage cartoon character charges!
"and once you've got that image lodged in your brain, it's difficult to shift."
Make that "impossible to shift". I really do wish that they'd change the blimmin' thing.
