Here's Your World Expo Mascot

(Diego Azubel/European Pressphoto Agency)

Part Smurf, part condom, part soft-serve ice cream... what's not to like? I think I need one of these. His (?) name is Haibao, and you can see more –probably too much more– of him here.

As a result of me wanting to stay in good standing here, I won't link to a thing (nor break any other rules again)in the comments.

That said, I would recommend that one take the risk to follow the link in Petey's post where you can see more - probably too much more- of him here.

Then click on the tab marked Theme Manifestation. Oh it is rich!

I was so crabby this morning, now my whole day has been turned around!

Fran, I know I'm strict, but on-topic linking is perfectly acceptable and welcome.

The biggest reason I had to get strict with links in comments is that people would say things like, "OMG, why haven't you written about this link yet" before I even had a chance. It was like getting scooped on my own blog, and it got to be unbelievably annoying.

Fran said...

I understand - and now I am carried off to work with dreams of theme manifestation in my head!!

It's impossible to look at an immobile cowlick without thinking of Cameron Diaz, and I've never even see that movie all the way through.

He (she/it?) looks like Gumby's little brother by another mother.

I Second Lady Wesley, definitely a Gumby inspired thing.

Yes! Gumby.

Funny, when I saw pix of Haibao yesterday, I actually laughed to myself and wondered what our Princess might say about him/her/it.
