What a ghastly piece of shite.
Where the hell do they find these people to design such ridiculous things?
More to the point why pay someone 400,000 pounds to design something when there is already a similar version knocking about.
Funny you should say that. I thought exactly the same thing - an abstract gay Dennis the Menace taking someone up the chuff. Perhaps - in our permissive overtly liberal climate - that is exactly what it's meant to represent. The usage of pink being non-gender specific.
I take it a British Bulldog, wearing a collar of the Olympics rings with the words "London 2012" underneath and maybe the Rose, Shamrock, Thistel and daffodil in each corner, or in a bunch somewhere in the whole thing, would have not set the right tone.
The Bulldog could also be wearing a Union Flag waist coat.
Obviously, if the Olympic commitee would like to send me, ohhh, say £100 they can use the above design.
Four hundred thousand pounds for that? Jesus wept. It looks like something someone would come up with on the back of a beer mat after a particularly long lunch break. Just think what the government or some deserving charities could do with that much money.
The OIC actually paid somebody to come up with that monstrosity? Hmm... the "artist" is laughing all the way to the bank I bet. So... how many of you esteemed gentlemen (cough) are actually planning on being within indirect fire range of the events?
I heard Seb Coe on about it on the news earlier and he said the £400,000 was well worth the money because it changes colour and over the next five years will look different. After 5 hours already it still looks fcuking SH*T to me.
I might start work as a self employed decorator and nip round and see if Seb wants any work done he pays well. I wondered why the cost of the Olympics were esculating out of control
Well I suppose he's got to try and put the best possible gloss on things since after the OIC paying all that money he can hardly turn round and go "You know what? You're right, that really is crap" even if that's what he believes can he?
