Iran's Fars news agency decided to illustrate an online report about the thousands of cellphones that will be either stolen or lost during the upcoming Olympic Games in London with a graphic of the Olympics' iconic rings.
But not just any graphic. These five Olympic rings were, unmistakably, multicolored condoms.
The graphic, which has since been replaced
, has been making the rounds on Iranian social media, sparking more than a few chuckles.
There's no clear indication of why the Fars editor originally decided to use the provocative graphic. Or why Fars has a graphic of the Olympic rings as condoms in its graphic database in the first place.
The International Olympic Committee -- which is very protective of its Olympic trademarks
-- may have had something to say about its ultimate removal.
