Egads. Even uglier Olympic mascots unveiled

From Yahoo/AP

Note to Bejing: don't hire the people who came up with giant penis people for Athens and these freaks for Turin.

''Lets symbolize snow!''
''How?''
''How else? Give two people cold things instead of heads! It''s original, AND it''s been done before!''

I just hope that when the Olympics come to my town, we get a better deal. 2010 will be the year of goodness! I''ve already got cash put aside to (try) to buy some olympic hockey tickets.

Is there any point to the Olympics any more? Beyond it being a source of constant amusement?

I agree. With all the questionable judging and challenges to scores during the last 2 Olympics, the event has become dirtied to the extent that it seems like nothing more than a staged reality TV show.

And what''s up with Olympic mascots? I never knew they existed until I read this thread. It seems so high-schoolish.

I blame Fox.

My dad might be doing some work for the buildings. Since I live at UBC now I might be able to get some tickets to that from him. He''s done some work for GM place too.

*grimace* Well, I, uh, guess its just a matter of taste. Um, those things are gonna scare my kids. I agree with DG, this is all Fox''s fault, not sure how, but damn it, someone has to be held accounatble for this boondoggle.

It could be ice and snow or a walking hemeroid couple

*Note: Crackheads should not be allowed to design anything of significance.*

OH MY GOD

Didnt think it could get any worse after the Athens penis''

You know, I think the Olympics will be interesting again once they come clear out and allow each national team to assemble their very own team of doping docs. Also they should not only award prizes for the best athlete, but also the best amphetamine brewer, kinda like the constructor''s championship in the F-1...

As for the mascots, they always sucked. It''s a historic tradition, really. Remember the mascot of Barcelona (1994, I think)? When they showed a TV series based on it, I hid behind our couch...

Oh god those are horrible.

Get the Shroud.
