    It looks like the 1980s vomited on a neon sign.

    We are the Thrax. Resistance is futile. Your cultural and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own.

    BUT... as you indicated above, you in fact must assimilate that logo into your collective. That means you now contain a neon pink 1980's barf art... THAT will be the downfall of the THRAX...

    The worlds plan has worked... the THRAX will begin to fail. Next step... dressing like a fairy with green tights... Oh wait, THRAX has already done that!!! ;D

    I'll be honest, it looks like the design company were lacking idea's for the new logo and during a bring your child to work day a 2yr old scribbled it on the back of a memo. Nice to see my Tax £'s being well spent :)

    But then again i could be wrong

    It's amazing. Photoshop dresses me in the morning.

    No! The Olympic Games epitomise the amateur athlete... oh except they're been mostly professionals for years!

    I think its pretty rubbish to be honest.

    Firstly - being a Londoner - why on earth does London not get a capital L - ffs! - That's just wrong!

    Also if I was a 'youth' that they were trying to appeal to I may be offended- like they can only appeal to young people by defying the rules of the English language?!!

    The classic logo they had with the London in caps and the ribon kinda weaving thru looked far nicer.

    Hella funny that they had to take the animated version off their site as it causes people to have fits! (well funny in one way but obviously very bad and a total cock up in another)

    Yes! the logo is a total cock up!

    Btw, what exactly does "a total cock up" mean? Sorry, im trying to figure out english slang.

    'A total cock-up' would be used to suggest something had gone completly wrong.

    Microsoft releasing vista and discovering their Zune player did not function with it would be an example of a total cock-up

    In this context I am implying someone 'cocked up' i.e. made a big error by not following the procedure to test the logo to insure it would not enduce fits (aparantly there's a machine they can feed it through or something! - was on BBC Breakfast this morning lol)

    Normally I try to look on the bright side of things, but I've tried - and that logo honestly does just plain suck.

    Ok so let me know if I get this right. Should Paris Hilton have told the judge that she totally cocked up and got caught driving under the influence? Maybe then she wouldn't be sent to Jail.

    Can you use it like that? I believe cock-up may be a post hoc recognition of events. Not a verb, so much as an adjective.
