August 1, 2012 - Olympics' Mascot and Logo
Lamplighter Wednesday Aug 1 12:46 PM
The figure designs are more than cute, quite slick I think.

these things are getting more and more uselessly disturbing, aren't they.

Stoke Mandeville is our local hospital. I was born there, as were my siblings, niece & nephew and great-nephews.

They look like a teletubby on LSD.

I liked Russia's mascot, Fatov. He represented the Russian values of sloth and alcoholism...

The best thing I can say about the mascots is they are not as bad as the logo (Lisa Simpson performing fellatio).

How could a company called Iris fail to put irises in the eyes of those things?

I'll bet they're being eye-conic.

Is it me or do the mascot designers just strive to be more abstract than the last ones each and every time?

No irises, they're CCTV cameras.

Clearly, we need to be compassionate about all this, and not laugh hysterically at these gawd-awful creations, and the insipid inspirations that created them. Least we can do is save our rawer episodes of hilarity, until either the Brits are not around, or are too drunk to care.

Has anyone seen these mascots in use? I don't think I've seen them anywhere other than in articles talking about the mascots. Maybe they were in the opening ceremonies for a second or two, but I'm probably misremembering that.

They were in some televised promo's. The Brits have shown real compassion by keeping them "in a free extended stay" in the Tower of London, methinks.

I have love/hate relationships with puns

That is pretty bad.
