LOCOG's Mother was a Hamster


You may have already read Nick Cohen's article on some aspects of the madness of the Olympics which he originally wrote in The Spectator (which is paywalled) but a version of which has since appeared in the Daily Mail. In fact I'm not even sure I'm legally allowed to mention the Olympics by name in this posting, it's got to that point.

But then Cory Doctorow over at Boing Boing posted about the "Linking Policy" on the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) web site's Terms of Use page. It says:

a. Links to the Site. You may create your own link to the Site, provided that your link is in a text-only format. You may not use any link to the Site as a method of creating an unauthorised association between an organisation, business, goods or services and London 2012, and agree that no such link shall portray us or any other official London 2012 organisations (or our or their activities, products or services) in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise objectionable manner. [...]

Oh how we laughed.

And for the record: LOCOG's mother was a hamster and its father smelt of elderberries.

There, I think that covers it.
