London Olympics Logo Running Man

Posted on 07/27/2012 11:45:09 AM PDT by Talisker

So after seeing the thing for what, two years now? It occurred to me last night that the London Olympics logo looked like puzzle pieces. They even have 3-D shaddow to make them look like you can pick them up and move them around. So I did. And I found a running man!

But even weirder, it seem the running man is supposed to be upside-down, on his head. Because only then can you read the "London" pice properly. Oh, and as a check, besides all the exact angles of the piece sides that line up, the word "London" is at an angle from the line of it's own piece - but, if you make the running man, "London" is then perfectly horizontal and lines up with the horizontal lines of the olympic rings on the "head" (the top if he's upright, the bottom if he's upside down).

Remember - someone deliberately designed this into the olympic logo! Weird, huh? Why would this be so important to include? Is it just an olympic runner? Then why only read "London" when he's upside-down, as if he's fallen on his head? Who is this guy supposed to be?

Thanks, though as Groucho Marx said, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

But I hear they have nice hats...

You should either cut back on or increase your meds.

If you put him together right, looks like “london” is his pecker. There are too many layers of nuttiness in the modern mind to fathom.

Actually, while not exact, the bottom image is vaguely the shape of England itself (that is, apart from Wales and Scotland).

This reminds me of the Iranian president claiming the logo actually said ZION. They should have changed the logo a couple of years ago!

I just figured this out, too - apparently, in the UK, they use pictogram "Exit" signs, instead of the word itself (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exit_sign). Look at the match:

Exit Sign

Is that creepy, or what?!

So I took it further, and did an overlay. I count 16 alignment match-points/lines (I included the heel, what the hell, it's so close). The olympic rings even give the guy a neck in the correct place. And look at the spacing alignments for the upside-down ascenders in the "london"! LOL!

Final interpretation, with overlay flipped to read "london" right-side up:

To me it looks like an L (London), an O (Olympics), 12.
