The clever people at Hat-Trick Design have come up with these amusing Olympic non-events. I thought it was worth posting as I've been working on my dissertation (all day long) and there's a section in that about the Olympics, not to mention the fact that these are pictograms.
Lifting a finger
Throwing your weight around
Jumping the queue
Shooting yourself in the foot
Throwing a wobbly
Wrestling with your conscience
"Throughout the course of the 2012 Olympic fortnight, an alternative programme of events will be taking place in

some of the most popular participation sports in the UK.
This blog is an attempt to recognise and honour these under-appreciated events through a system of practical iconography."olympic-non-events.tumblr.com
