    Meet the London 2012 Olympic Mascots

    London Olympics 2012: Meet Wenlock and Mandeville, drips off the old block. Organisers have unveiled their mascots – creatures supposedly fashioned from droplets of steel used to build the stadium.

    When I think of London, I think of Wenlock and Mandeville.

    Why do Olympic mascots always have to be so lame?

    Mandeville seems to have wet himself. How embarrassing!

    LOL, the funny part is that some clowns actually got paid to designs these!

    It took 16 years, but someone finally seized the title of crappiest ever Olympic mascot(s) from Atlanta.

    Thank you, London.

    I was going to say that the Olympic mascots don't surprise me, considering they come from the country that gave us both Teletubbies and Boobah.

    That one is not too bad at all. Cute enough for the kids, not idiotic enough to turn off the adults. The Atlanta games mascot looked like some terrible concept for a Saturday morning kids show.

    Oh well... it is the Olympics. My guess is someone in the steel industry was the highest bidder to those on the Olympic Committee who decide on the mascots. The same process that is used to decide which city gets to host the Olympics. Money talks, cool mascots walk.

    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.
    No, no they don't. They resemble evil mutant creatures from other, less successful, studios that were created as part of a plot to destroy Pixar, or possibly even the world. I notice the "2012" on the orange creature's mid-section and wonder whether this is a reference to the olympic year or a harbinger of the predicted end of all civilization, which his existence will no doubt trigger.
