Iran is threatening to boycott of the 2012 London Olympics because it claims the official logo for the games resembles the word "Zion," which is a biblical term for Jerusalem.
Bahram Afsharzadeh, the secretary-general of Iran's National Olympic Committee, says he sent a letter to IOC president Jacques Rogge in which he condemns the logo as "racist" and calls upon other Muslim countries to join in protest.
The logo was unveiled four years ago to mass criticism, almost all of which had to do with the awkward, bulky design and not pro-Zionist conspiracy:

They should definitely send him a t-shirt with the logo on it. As a peace offering!

Alright, I'm ready.

Whatever amount of money we need to spend to get off of petroleum, let's just spend it. If we can go ahead and ween ourselves off the only thing that makes this region of the world remotely relevant, that would be fucking great.

Once we're using hydrogen or electricity to move about, we can tell these idiots to just shut the hell up. It's our own refusal to commit to the technology that gives these guys a voice.

Honestly, Liechtenstein may be full of crazy assholes, but nobody really knows because nobody really gives a shit. There's no reason for us to listen to Iran apart from the fact that they've got a ton of oil over there. Once they're irrelevant, anytime they get this kind of dumbass wild hair, we can tell them to shut up because the adults are speaking. Y'know, kinda like Liechtenstein.

Screw this light rail shit, whatever gubbamint subsidies we have to offer, lets offer them to the alternative energy folks.

I would. I bet that they'd be the hands-on favorite for the stone throwing competition.

Yeah, I could see a boycott purely for aesthetic reasons. That may be the worst logo I've ever seen.

But it sure doesn't look like the word Zion. Those Iranians are a little too obsessed with Jews to be healthy.

What would we do with the Iranian teams at the Olympics? How would the event even be considered a competition without the powerhouse that is Iran?

Early public reaction to the logo, as measured by a poll on the BBC website, was largely negative: more than 80% of votes gave the logo the lowest possible rating. Several newspapers have run their own logo competitions, displaying alternative submissions from their readers. The Sun displayed a design by a macaque monkey. It was suggested that the logo resembles the cartoon character Lisa Simpson performing fellatio and others have complained that it looks like a distorted Swastika.


AHA!

What's that, DeLirious? Speak up. Did you say something about the Jooz?

I'm not sure what Iran is looking at.

I look at the logo and come up with Kindergarten inspired or POS. I can't make up my mind which.

You can sort of see it, but only if you are obsessed with the word "zion" and see evil cloven-hoofed jews lurking behind every corner thanks to a life of brainwashing.

The Iranian olympic committee should get a life. The logo should be changed simply because it is crap, not offensive.
