Middle Finger, Olympics!

Kris Krug just posted a photo of a poster seen in Gastown, and surely elsewhere, of a stylized middle finger made out of the Olympic rings. If it had the Olympic colours, it probably would have been less subtle, but let's be honest, I don't think a lot of people, myself included, initially saw an obscene gesture made with one's hands, but a body part that people are more discreet about. I wonder if the people who were behind the 2010 Riot stencils are behind this poster as well.

I walked right by it not thinking to take a photo of it. Not only do I work in the same office as a company with a citizen journalism site, but I work with citizen journalists. If you see them any of the posters elsewhere in Vancouver and use Flickr, be sure to tag them with 'vancouver' and 'olympics' so that they show up in the search for both tags.
