Fontastic

You know, with all the palaver about the sheer awfulnewss of the epilepsy inducing London 2012 logo (you know, the one that looks like an act of al fresco fellatio if you squint), that no one seems to have mentioned that the font in which "london" is writ seems to be some ugly scrappy thing not a million miles away from Comic Sans. It's a small thing, but it just adds to the fact that the whole thing looks like it was put together in MSPaint in 5 minutes. Do I really have to look at this thing any longer?

I'm going to be charitable. I don't think this was ever intended to be the final logo; they keep saying it will "evolve" and I have a suspicion that they decided it would be very hip if it changed every few months. It was still a terrible, terrible thing to unveil.

Aaah, but look at the publicity. Shiny, shiny.
