    Today marks the point at which we have just a year before the excruciating embarrassment opening ceremony of the most unmitigated sporting disaster in history greatest show on Earth in London for the 2012 Olympic Games.

    I'm sure it will be sensational.

    You just know it's going to be an embarrassing disaster.

    So far we've had:
    • The dreadful logo
    • Those 2 characters
    • The countdown clock which stopped working
    Still, at least we get a new cable car outside our front door...

    I'm voting for the logo being the worst part :mad:.

    The logo looks different than I last saw it. Did it change at some point?

    Amsterdam will probably sell four times the amount of weed because of the tourism.

    Didn't they plan to stop selling weed to tourists?

    When "the dreadful logo" was mentioned I just had to check it out:
    It took me a while to realize that those funky shapes are actually the numbers 2012.

    Don't worry we thought the exact same thing in the run up to 2000, but even though there were a few cringing moments in the opening ceremony, it was overall a huge success and a lot of fun!

    Looks like something I doodled on my desk when I was 12.

    Actually, it just reminds me a bit of the class of 2012 t-shirts at my old high school.

    Quite amazing how much the person whom wins the contract for the design get's paid for such terrible designs. My tip would be to recruit that guy who draws the variety of google doodles.

    You're missing the best part: The logo in color!

    In other news, am I the only one that thought misread this thread as about XenForo's 1-year birthday? :cautious:
