Iran and the Olympics.


Iran is threatening to boycott the Olympic Games in London in 2012.

Iran has threatened to boycott the London Olympics unless the organisers replace the official logo, which Tehran claims spells out the word “Zion”.

Yeah. So?

The logo, which cost £400,0001 to create, is a very stylised 2012.  Or Lisa Simpson giving some one a blowjob.  Or Zion if you come from Iran.

If you don’t want to come and play, why don’t you just say so.  Anyway, we don’t want you playing, so we’re going to come up with a way to piss you off.

If Iran is really that petty, then tell them to fuck off and stay at home.  Like the rest of us would care.  Every chance that Ahmadinejad gets he takes a side swipe at Israel and it’s supporters2.  Seems a little paranoid.

Now, I know that perhaps the people who are coming to the games don’t give a flying toast bucket about all of this, and it would be unfair to exclude them.  But, you know what.  We need to stop playing nicely with Iran.  This sort of stupidity has to stop.  Grow up and come play with everyone nicely or you won’t be allowed back into the sand pit until you can jolly well behave your self.

2012 or Zion?

Now on to more important things.  £400,00 for that thing?  Are you serious?  This is one of the many reasons I detest the Olympics.  There are people in the world who can’t afford dinner tomorrow, do you think we could get that right before we head off and spend a lot of money on a logo?  How much rice can that sort of money buy?

Games are fun, I’m sure, but let’s stop pissing the money against the wall and watching it flow down into the gutter.
