Olympic drama is unfolding in London after the official release of the London 2012 logo. Seems locals are none too happy and a petition is already online to have the art changed.

"A new logo has been unveiled for the London 2012 Olympics. I feel it is an embarrassment and portrays our country in the worst possible way." So wrote Jonathan Ellis on GoPetition.com. Already, more than 3,000 have signed on to have the offending logo replaced. Personally, I don't mind it, although it is a bit like a mutant tangram.

Slated ... the controversial logo
