The scariest part of this.... taken from that article.... is that they paid 400,000 British Pounds for that logo.  That's nearly $1 million.  Waste.  Of.  Money.

I think Big Ben F'd the original logo, but wasn't wearing a condom and jacked it up.

In other news, London unveiled its new street-crossing signs.

Insanity ensues: http://www.reuters.com/article/oddlyEnoughNews/idUSEIC44461820070604?feedType=RSS

LONDON (Reuters) - A British artist who last week ate a meal of meatballs made from a dead corgi dog in a protest against animal cruelty said Sunday his next project involved being buried in a box under a mountain of mashed potato.

LOL to the potato mountain!

Reminds me of something a friend of mine said. A teacher asked him to name a life goal and he said he wanted to eat his weight in chili. Sadly it hasn't been accomplished yet.

You know when the logo is bad when it pops up on the BBC, including this wonderful picture that shows where the picture apparently came from:

That's a pretty shitty "explanation", and the video looked like something from MTV in the 80's.

Translation:  The actual cost was 100 pounds and we pocketed the rest of the money.

I assume that money is for the entire ad campaign.  Not a single logo.

Not that it's a good logo.  Oh look it says 2012, how clever.

I love that street sign.  I'll need to print it out and keep it next to my plush mini-Cthulhu.

They had to pull their animated version because it was causing seizures.  Surely, this proves the Old Ones are behind it?

That works on just so many levels.  It looks stupid, it cost them WAY too much, it was targeted at "the kids" (meaning it was focus grouped to high hell)... and it causes epileptic seizures.

Looks like they've done just about all the damage they could with a logo.  Stellar job, guys!  Cthulhu will reward you by allowing you to be the last to die.

The design is made up of four jagged pieces that form the numbers 2012 in a variety of colors.

Is THAT what it is? Or is supposed to be? Wow. I never saw that until I outright read that.

I didn't get that either.  Even after reading their official site.

And if you're curious, here's the reason as to why the logo was designed like this.
