Is that Pokemon? The logo for that crappy sushi restaurant I ate at last week? A hallucination from my trip to Bonnaroo last summer come back to haunt me? I mean, really, couldn't we do something better? I don't know... something athletic, mayhaps?

By far I think the '94 Winter Games in Lillehammer Norway boasted the coolest artwork. Then again, it was my dad's advertising agency who spearheaded the whole campaign so you could say I am a little biased.
