    Cry about it, Iran. The country of barbarian law is lecturing the West on morality, gotta love it.

    While they're at it, they should boycott any and all places spelled with or featuring lowercase t's. You know, because they resemble crosses.

    It's just Pareidolia.

    Apparently, others see Lisa Simpson going down on another figure and a swastika.

    I'm more worried about Wenlock and Mandeville, the two one-eyed monsters that are mascots for British steel works.

    Probably a ginned-up excuse for possibly boycotting the Olympics for financial reasons and motivating their own hardliners by poking a finger in the eye of the 'Little Satan'.

    Damn you! Beat me to it!

    I'm looking forward to 2012 and some Iranian nutter isn't going to stop that!

    I guess The Matrix didn't go over very well in Iran either.

    From here on out let's just design Olympic logos with hidden messages in them.

    I think what Iran is failing to realize is that no matter what style or font you use for the numbers 2012, you can rotate and re-arrange them to get something that resembles the word "zion"

    I guess we should just skip the 2012 Olympics completely. Does 2014 spell anything that might be offensive? :rolleyes:

    Here's a site that shows the present and a number of past Olympic logos.

    I must say, London's is certainly a stinker.

    Somebody crack a window!

    Maybe this is just how they rip on things in Iran-- like its cultural. If you didn't like someone's shoes you'd be all "Hey man, your shoes remind me zion." Or "You're mother is a zionist sympathizer!"
