Train Wreck

LONDON (AFP) - The "iconic" logo for the 2012 London Olympics was unveiled here on Monday, but critics immediately condemned it as "hideous" and a waste of money.

Or as my friend Sone put it, "It's a good logo … FORMETOPOOPON!"

I mean, I know I'm not an award-winning logo designer, but come on; you're starting with a logo with 5 rings--including a red one--and your city's best known logo includes a red ring, and the year, 2012, has a character with a circle and you give me a train wreck? WTF?

Follow-Up: BBC News website readers have been sending in their alternative 2012 logos.
