Beijing Olympics logo – How China gets its inspiration
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.
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…
