ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Update: Here's the original, from PureEvil.
London, then Rio? For once the Olympics will be worth watching.
You know, it’ll be tough trying to figure out where the torch is supposed to go, if the rest of the city is already on fire.
Hi Cory, the image, for the London Olympic Looting Team, is by Pure Evil Gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pureevilbunny/6028019911/
I think it works better as a symbol for the London Olympics as a whole, rather than as a symbol of Looting as an “olympic sport”.
NEEDS GUY FAWKES MASK SHOPPED IN
Oh No! I just bought a giant red ring on Craig’s List. I knew the price was too low to be legitimate.
new medal event: 200 metre with Big Screen LCD Dash
This reminded me of a remix I did for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics…
The photo is bullshit!
The rings are interlocking. Only the next physical embodiment of Juan Antonio Samaranch can unlock these intertwined rings, and replace the symbol with corporate sponsorship.
Games Of The XXXII Olympiad
This should be the official logo.
Much better than that crappy what on earth is Lisa Simpson doing to that man? design.
Does that count as Godwining?
If they were really solid interlocking rings, they wouldn’t be able to fit them together, silly. Clearly there’s a break in each ring carefully hidden underneath the intersection of the ring in front of it.
Cory – Made this one just for you. Lighting the Olympic Torch from a burning automobile.
Is that Eminen? Thug!
Evidently some Londoners are . . . you know . . . rioting. Odd way to express their pride.
