So the mascots for the 2012 Olympic games in London were just released recently. Well, uh, I’ll let the comments from the English paper The Guardian do the talking from here.
Here is a picture of the mascots.
“In the end they were neither animal, vegetable nor mineral. Nor, as some cynics had predicted, did they resemble white elephants.”
“The unveiling of the bold London Olympics logo in 2007 was controversial, with many criticising its graffiti-like design. Organisers, who hired Wolff Olins at a cost of £400,000 to design it, stood firm, arguing that it was supremely adaptable and perfect for the digital age. But they were forced to withdraw a launch film after it emerged that it had the potential to trigger epileptic seizures.”

Is Matt Groening on our Olympics committee? First the 2012 logo looks like Lisa Simpson giving head to Bart, and now we have Kodos & Kang as our mascots?

Bloody hell, they’re terrible – I couldn’t really care less to be hionest but is that the best they could come up with?
And the main logo looks like a gorilla sat on the toilet whilst waving his arm

Because nothing says “Britain” like a creepy bipedal showerhead/penis thing with lobster claws.
10 points to Griffindor for best mascot design. FAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.
