I ran the 2012 Olympics' mascots through my patented de-chibifying process. This was the result.



Why the London Olympics felt that the 2012 games would best be symbolized by a pair of gay men with cameras for heads, I'll never know. I'm not even going to touch the fact that one of them is wearing a spandex singlet with Bart Simpson giving a blowjob on the front. But I will say that I'm really not so hot on Mandeville's decision to dye his hair blue and do it up in a couple of ponytails.

(thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ianmcdonald for pointing out the security cameras, which got me thinking in this direction.)

This made the mascots much more tolerable. I sense loads of slashfic in the future of these boys. ^o^

You should make this into a t-shirt. It's wonderful.

And really, what says "21st Century London" more than anthropomorphic security cameras?

First, I think that is brilliant. I love those. I can even identify what those kinda are. Now, compare that to what I see when I look at the real mascots, and the only thing I see is fire! Fire! FIRE!

I was naive to think that no one could come up with mascots worse then Izzy. I mean, Athena and Phevos were bad, but they were still better then Izzy.

I never in my life imagined that someone would WANT to create a mascot to be in direct competition for Worse Mascot Ever... Much less two.

Wow. 400,000 pounds for those overdesigned, anthro-steel drops which don't even look like steel drops? Wow. Yes, yours are far more interesting. The real designs just beg to be redrawn, right? Like anyone could do better. Perhaps I'll give it a go...

SHINY BULGE *cackle*

and yeah, those guys have been so excessively focus-grouped and executive-interfered that they've had all the interesting knocked off. If there every was any...

Conversational bookmark for later: the three animal mascots from the Salt Lake City Olympiad...

Is that the one that got Pedobear somehow involved?

Dear god no. If so, that's not what I was thinking! O.o I just thought it was a pretty good example of a blandified Olympic logo, because I visually misread one of the characters as having a much more lively expression at first. I'll show you when I see ya next in front of a computer. ^_^
