Olympic Mascots: it could be worse.
Much, much worse. For your delectation, the Beijing Olympics present a gallery of the horrible ghosts of olympic mascots past.
Personally, I like our new mascots, and hope they will do their part in helping to sell the bugeted $500 million (retail revenue) in merchandise.
Also, can anyone explain the status of not-quite mascot Mukmuk? Apparently he’s a friend of the remaining mascots. I don’t know, is he John Perry Barlow to their Grateful Dead? Or an early rejection, Pete Best to their Beatles?
But a bear that used to be a whale? I like it.
