It appears one of the pervs who make erotic Simpsons fanart and ruined Google Image Search for everyone was put in charge of designing the logo for the 2012 Summer Olympics, because how else to explain this? Oh sure it’s supposed to be “2012,” rendered in an abstract style reminiscent of early-80’s LA New Wave, but doesn’t it look like something… unseemly… that will be impossible to unsee once you’ve seen it?

Quoth LAist:

Hell, the very first comment on Londonist acknowledged that yep that’s Lil Lisa doing something that doesn’t seem like something a vegetarian would do unless she’s planning on spitting it out.

I think it’s time for Izzy to come out of retirement. [LAist]

The [minor league baseball team] Portland Beavers will honor America’s goofiest dad later this summer. The Pacific Coast League Beavers, in announcing their 2007 promotional schedule, said they’ll hold Homer Simpson Night on July 21. The homage will honor the cartoon character whose creator, Matt Groening, grew up in Portland.

Homage, or should it be…. Homerage??? [Portland Business Journal]
