Beijing Olympics logo – How China gets its inspiration

January 3rd, 2008

The official logo for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games depicts a Chinese seal inscribed with the character ‘jing’ (from the word Beijing), altered slightly to resemble a dancing figure… Or at least that is how the official story goes.

But what is the real inspiration behind China’s Olympic logo?

To find out, Funny Cool Stuff goes right into the heart of things… China’s blatant disregard for human rights as the root. The faces behind this questionably innovative logo say that the logo represents a happy person jumping or dancing.

Take a look at the logo from another angle…

It looks like some poor dissident who had the nerve (the nerve I tell you) to speak out against an oppressive government, was blindfolded, put against the wall, and shot.

Beijing 2008

And the shot was so powerful, it hurled his body against the wall in a contortion, the red spot in center marking the bullet’s exit point!

On second thought, I think we should reward the dude who got shot! Give him a medal or something! Hahaha…

    It looks more like yoga than contortion. This can be called the Beijing Dissident Pose…

    Imaginative, but it’s not appropriate to make fun of either the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games or China.

    If you understand China, you will be able to see that this is not simply a joke. Do some study about China then you might see the message behind it.

    It’s pretty witty. I don’t see why it’s inappropirate comment sarcastically about 2008 Beijing and China’s human rights history. A recent example of China’s police brutality from the top of my head is the Hubei Chengguan? incident.

    It’s very appropriate, given China’s human rights abuses.

    when you guys were acusing china, have you done your research or just heard if from your “media”. how about invading a country and left thousand dead? is that a good human right record?
    BTW Tibet is part of china for hundreds of years! no one seperate China!

    Not appropriate to make fun of China or the games? What kind of PC BS is that? You are a part of the problem…not the solution.

    US policemen only kill people using gun if you don’t obey, not beat!! Chinese policemen are so brutal to beat people instead of killing.

    …This is not funny in the least. I SO agree with ray and I hate how everyone is so racist to Chinese people like me… It’s not very fun being Chinese when you get picked on all the time… Try and be ME for one day.

    I think all comments are alright. Each to their own and each has their own opinion. Our articles are purely for entertainment and for fun, with no pun intended. Apologies if what we have posted do offend some.

    That’s awful… but with human rights abuses it does seem relevant
