Despite the rather risque URL that starts bj2008, the official Olympic online shopping has some pretty cool AND some pretty lame souvenirs.

I love the replica of the torch. It's about half the size of the original, but appears to be very detailed.

A pen/pencil holder is made of ceramic and looks to be very pretty, but the rest of the stuff is just "stuff."
