Or maybe, as my Dad says, we all just need to brush up on our Jung.

Did you see also that some people are saying it's, um, a woman "servicing" a man.

Agreed that it's a damn ugly symbol. But I think we're all reading just a bit too much into it.

Before I even saw the swastika, that was my very first thought of what it looked like. Rorschach testing would confirm.

A video featuring the logo on the London Olympics website also threw a bunch of people into epileptic fits.

The agency that designed it was paid 400,000 pounds which equals $800,000.

Cripes!
