Vancouver Olympic Committee Releases 2010 Logo

As we approach the 2-week sports party known as the 2010 Winter Olympics here in Vancouver, buildings, roads, and other stuff is slowly being cobbled together in anticipation of rowdy German tourists and confused Americans.

Yesterday, the organizing committee unveiled the logo we'll be using as we invite the world to Vancouver

The official spiel:
A uniquely Canadian symbol of friendship, hospitality, strength, teamwork and the vast Canadian landscape has been selected as the emblem for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

The Vancouver 2010 emblem is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional inukshuk, a stone sculpture used by Canada's Inuit people as directional landmarks across the northern Canadian lands of snow and ice. Over time, the inukshuk has become a representation of hope, friendship and an external expression of the hospitality of a nation that warmly welcomes the people of the world with open arms. The distinctive formations are found across the country - from coastlines to mountaintops, from small towns to large cities - in a variety of styles.

Well, to quote Lyke Skywalker: "What a piece of junk!"

It looks like they gave a 5 year-old kid a bunch of used crayons and told him to draw a sumo wrestler.

...and I bet they spent $1.2 mil to choose this logo, too
