The logo for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics has been unveiled in a star-studded ceremony in London, where it garnered huge attention – mostly negative.

Here are some of the best reactions to the “forward-thinking” logo from around the net:

  • Wow, I hope this is some sort of sick joke.
  • What the hell is this? Where do you sign up to get the clients who are willing to pay £400k for utter shit?
  • Thanks for giving the blind and mentally retarded a chance to become graphic designers. There is hope.
  • Half a million on this, and they say the Olympics isn’t corrupt anymore?
  • I must congratulate the designers though, £400,000 isn’t bad for 5 minutes of work.
  • Looks like Lisa Simpson giving head.
