    I didn't realize the cyclops was indigenous to Great Britain. But ugh, puke factor.

    Come on, London! You're better than that! It took you 40 focus groups and 18 months to come up with this crap? You probably came up with this shit 5 minutes before the deadline.

    Wenlock and Mandeville sounds like a poorly funded BBC drama.
    The mascots look like a bank commercial's attempt to make sperm look 'kool'.

    I'm not going to let this crappy mascots keep me from going to the Olympics! It's my goal to attend gymnastics events there, so I just won't waste my money on souvenirs of those dumb-ass mascots.

    I think Teletubbies even would've been a better mascot for London than this shit!

    Ugh, why do the Gay Games not have gymnastics? If so, I would consider training and competing!

    The logo is nothing to brag about, either, but the mascots are simply inexcusable!

    Nevertheless, I'm excited to go to London for the Games icon_smile.gif

    Because silly, just like in figure skating, there are no gymnasts that are gay.

    Is there some kind of test to make sure the "Gay" games only have gay people? Couldn't a straight guy compete and just say he's gay

    That certainly is true. I've met VERY FEW gay guys in my years of gymnastics. Despite how many gay guys are fans of the sport, not many of them participate in the sport.

    They're seriously missing out! It's hard work, but definitely worth it (usually).

    But yeah, the London Olympic Mascots seems a bit strange and unexpected.

    It could be worse I guess...

    Yikes. Looks like that bit in AKIRA when the toys come to life and cry blood. I am not feeling the love.

    They look awesome!!!!

    I like how the names have great historic importance to the Olympic and Paralympic movement.

    Kids don't respond to characters of an obvious sex, so that's why they aren't gender specific. I think it goes the image of the two mascots works well with an unusually non-nationalistic olympic logo.

    The London games will be different, can't wait, I will be there!
