I enthused recently here about China's adorable mascot for their World Expo thingee, and now we have new spokesmodels to contemplate: those for the UK Olympics.
Yes, they are creepy and disturbing, but more importantly, they are a hot mess. This article at the Telegraph shows why: they have been pumped full of just too much meaning. OMG, it's like every part of them is significant, resulting in unholy chimaeras nobody will love.
Less is more, people.
UPDATE - This made me fondly remember bizarro cartoonist Mariscal's wonderful "Cobi" for the Barcelona Olympics.
