(this post is NOT for children)
Let’s briefly comment on the City of London and its choice of both the Olympic logo and the mascots that were released earlier this week. First the logo. Now is it my imagination (or the fact I’m gay) but doesn’t this dreadful attempt at graphic design remind you of a lad (on the right with the big Olypmic rings for a head), well, um, giving another lad some oral satisfaction?

In keeping with this theme, we have the two new Olympic mascots – Wenlock and Mandeville. Can you say ‘gay’. These two condoms masquerading as mascots are laughable at best and an embarrassment to all involved. The folks who designed these took everything far too literally and forgot a key tenet of mascot design – cuddly likeability.
