Mascots on Acid

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 in Funny Pics, Teh Funny

It did not help that I saw this pic after taking painkillers for a headache. I refreshed the link twice to make sure.

With a metallic finish, a single large eye made out of a camera lens, a London taxi light on their heads and the Olympic rings represented as friendship bracelets on their wrists, they resemble characters dreamed up for a Pixar animation.

WRONG!!!! Pixar Animation would NEVER dream up a couple of cycloptic characters with claws for hands and tubes for legs. Hell, the blue character looks like it had an “accident”, for shite’s sake. The orange one looks down to the kidlets in a glowering fashion, looking like it’s about to destroy them by shooting a deathray out of its eye. It’s almost like the Japanese had a hand in this. Remember when the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics had the bald eagle, and the 2000 Sydney Olympics had several indegenous fauna? WTF, Londonistan?? Yes, you want to be different, and yes, you want to pay homage to the way the Olympic center is being built (the mascots are supposed to resemble drops of molten metal, which is a scene from yet another nightmare). But what is wrong with doing the tried and true? The lion has been done before, but your BULLDOG has not!!

Hell, Zombie Churchill would have been a better mascot than these two cyborg Teletubbies.
