What fresh new hell is this?
I was quite surprised with the mascots that the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver created. Surprised because they were well designed, locally relevant, and cute. Mascots are supposed to sell merchandise (to be totally, brutally honest - as I have been known to be from time-to-time) - kids should want to race up and give them a big ol' hug.
Well let me be the first to suggest that no one will want to hug Wenlock and Mandeville, pictured above, the recently announced mascots for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
Correction - that breed of tourist who likes to take pictures that will shock the folks back at home will be happy to appear side-by-side with those two.
Seriously - what sort of recreational drugs were being done while they are created . . . or decided on for that matter?
This wee video tells their story:
See . . . drugs clearly were involved!
