    So if something is longer than it is wide, that automatically makes it 'penis-like'? They have two feet furchrissakes.

    I like them, btw.

    I think that maybe some people in this thread have never seen a penis.

    Look at them, man. Look at them and their shriveled-scrotum legs!

    I mean... these are dickerdoodles!

    So that's a confirmation then.

    Man, artist's interpretation. It's a modern-art penis. One must take liberties with one's penis before presenting it to the world.

    They are One-Eyed Monsters.

    I mean, that is kinda a euphemism for Penis for a reason. It's is because tall one eyed monsters look strikingly similar to penis's.

    I don't think they look like penises persay, but I can't wait for answer to "so it's basically a one eyed monster?"

    London should've let Alan Moore or Warren Ellis give them ideals for the 2012 Mascot.

    This is the first I've heard about individual Olympics mascots (beyond that episode of the Simpsons); what were the past mascots? Apparently they're easily forgotten.

    I couldn't stop staring at the powder blue part of that one's crotch long enough to see that they are penis monsters. Is something wrong with me?

    Has he finalised the list of events he'll be competing in yet? It's so spread out that I doubt he'll be able to do every single one like he originally planned.

    At least Russia is using some sort of animal. These mobile sauron penises are weird. Are they related to something in the UK that I'm not aware of besides the constant surveillance?

    edit: Also, I kept reading "cheburashka" as Chewbacca.

    Maybe that one is for the para-olympics.

    Is pedobear actually an Olympic mascot, or did I just coincidentally see it coupled with the little scarfed black and white furry-thing?

    I remember seeing pedobear spray-painted on a billboard advertising the Pope's visit to Malta.

    Boris Johnson should be the mascot.

    Some 4chaners photo shopped it in with the 3 Vancouver mascots, and a European Newspapre(Polish I think) ended up publishing the shopped photo.

    Somehow in those colors it's not so terrible. I mean it's weird looking but it's not quite so phallic and I can kinda see what they're going for.

    I guess it fits, in that it is accompanied by us having to engage in Games.

    I think they are probably pretty smug about churning out something so poor but being able to charge £400,000 for it.

    I know I would be.

    Touche

    Though you have to assume their design requests have since plummeted

    I'll guess that it was a rejected design that they came up with for next year's World Youth Day and managed to pawn off onto the Olympic Committee who really didn't give a shit in the first place.
