London Logo Farce - The Farce Continues V

The controversy over the "Lisa Simpson Gives Head" London 2012 Olympic logo continues unabated.

This time Brett Gosper, president of McCann Worldgroup in Europe (the agency that is promoting the games), weighed into the controversy noting that he would "probably not" have chosen it to represent the London 2012 games.

London 2012 officials responded by saying:

"This is surprising."

Where have they been for the past two years?

BTW I understand that the IOC hates the "Lisa Simpson Gives Head" analogy, as they quite rightly see that it damages their brand, and have tried to remove any videos from the web that purport to show such an action.

I wonder why they didn't see the similarity before choosing this logo?
